DARIN J. ZARUBA

Darin Zaruba is an award-winning, disruptive, visionary entrepreneur, marketer, author, speaker, and business development executive. Darin has been described as a ‘renaissance’ businessman with a vast knowledge and in-depth personal experience in multiple businesses and industries.

Darin is a 20-year veteran in the modular / manufactured construction and land development industry with soup-to-nuts experience from construction, sales, financing, marketing and management. Darin shifted a part of his business focus in 2013 — ‘turning tiny’ in both philosophy and design of product and placement. Darin founded the internationally known ‘National Tiny House Jamboree’, which drew an estimated 40,000 attendees at the inaugural 2014 event, and ran for 5 years. This also launched a respected book of the movement, “Turning Tiny” which focuses on the changing philosophy of American housing.

To supplement this growing movement and industry shift in construction, Darin assisted in launching a flagship large-scale modular construction factory in 2018 that operates as private-label manufacturing partner for brand-name builders and developers. Its focus is currently on multi-family projects and single-family homes for master planned communities and developers. Darin also works with other specialty factories across the country to service client’s needs.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” - Teddy Roosevelt – 26th President of the United States.
