Meet Our Bold & Fearless Leaders

Erik McLaughlin

Owner, CPA

Erik is the co-founder of Bold North Roofing and Contracting. With a background in accounting and business, Erik leads the business development and financial aspects of the business. He started his career in public accounting and worked at a local real estate developer where he helped rapidly scale the business. He is also a certified public accountant and real estate agent both licensed in the state of Minnesota. Erik lives in Minneapolis where he enjoys traveling, staying active, and spending time with family and friends.

Ryan Emmerich


Ryan is the co-founder of Bold North Roofing and Contracting. With over a decade of experience in the roofing and construction industry, Ryan leads the production and operations teams at Bold North. He started his roofing career as a laborer during the summers in his college years and has since project managed over 1,000 residential and commercial roofing jobs. Ryan lives in Burnsville with his girlfriend and two dogs. He enjoys hunting, fishing, and all things outdoors.


The founders of Bold North, Ryan and Erik, were both born and raised in Minnesota before heading to the University of North Dakota for college where they met. Ryan went to school for Teaching and Erik went to school for Accounting where they both graduated at the top of their respective classes. 

Ryan started working in the roofing industry during his summers when he was not teaching and quickly learned that roofing was his passion which he transitioned to full-time shortly thereafter. Since then, Ryan has worked in every facet of the industry from Roofer to Project Manager to Sales Manager where he has completed over a 1,000 jobs in residential, commercial, and multi-family. He also holds his General Contractor’s license. 

Erik started working as a CPA at a big4 accounting firm after college which he quickly realized was not his passion. He then joined a local real estate developer where he gained experience in commercial real estate and what it takes to grow and scale a small business. He also holds his real estate license. 

During the last several years, both Ryan and Erik figured out that they had aspirations beyond just working a 9-5 job so they began buying old houses to renovate which they then rented out to families in need. This feeling of serving the communities they grew up in through providing safe and affordable homes was the main driver that created Bold North Roofing and Contracting. With this new venture, Ryan and Erik are now able to work directly with homeowners to ensure that their houses are properly protected so that they are able to go boldly into any storm or night.
