Meet the Team

Philip Hughes-Parry

Philip brings over 10 years of experience in renovation and project management from the marine industry. Hailing from the south coast of England, Philip has spent most his career on the water and has always found that helping his clients get the most out of their boats by designing and implementing modifications to meet the owners’ needs has been his most satisfying work. After moving to Minnesota in 2018, Philip wanted to apply his passion for maximizing both beauty and functionality to the home remodeling industry. After overseeing and completing much of the hands-on work for the full renovating his own home in 2018 and becoming a qualified builder in 2019, Philip now looks forward to ensuring that Ellis Builders’ clients have everything that they need to make their home remodeling projects smooth sailing!

Caitlin Hughes-Parry 

From her years practicing law, Caitlin brings exceptional attention to detail to all Ellis Builders’ projects ensuring that the client’s concerns and preferences are carefully listened to and taken into consideration throughout the entire process. Caitlin is a Minnesota native and is excited to be helping folks in her home state make their spaces work harder for them! 

Tom Ellis

With over 35 years of combined experience in construction and remodeling, Tom’s insight and talent for achieving beautiful, quality craftsmanship make him an invaluable part of the Ellis Builders team. After 11 years of successfully running his own construction business in Wisconsin, Tom moved to Minnesota in 1987 and worked for custom home building and remodeling companies until 2009, when he founded Ellis Builders. The company provided quality remodeling services under Tom’s ownership until 2019, when Tom welcomed Philip and Caitlin onto the team with a view to transitioning towards retirement. 

Philip and Caitlin began the process of gradually assuming ownership and management of Ellis Builders under Tom’s mentorship in 2019. Philip, Caitlin, and Tom believe that together they can ensure that Ellis Builders will be positioned to continue providing the exceptional service that its clients have come to expect.
