Preston G. Still, Jr.
Preston began his career in construction in 1991 as a member of Local Union 322 Plumber's and Pipe Fitters. After four years, Preston was promoted to foreman, where he oversaw medium and large-scale projects.
Eager to expand his knowledge and skills, Preston took a Drexel University Construction Management and Fundamentals of Construction Certification course. Preston then took the NJ State Master Plumbers Test and became a licensed plumber in early 2000.
On June 26, 2000, at the urging of Yizhar - Preston’s now spouse and business partner - he resigned from Local Union 322 and began a small plumbing company. In the August 2005 edition of Philadelphia Magazine, Preston was named best plumber in South Jersey. In January of 2008 Preston and Yiz combined forces to create what is now a strong general contracting and mechanical business servicing the needs of their long-time clientele.
After leaving the Israeli Defense Force at 20, Yizhar Gilady moved to the United States to pursue his American Dream.
Mr. Gilady’s new life in Philadelphia, PA first entailed stocking shelves in a retail shoe store, but within a year, he had been promoted to reorganizing and streamlining those same stores. At 23, Yizhar opened a residential and commercial cleaning business. This business grew into a career of house management, personal assistance, organization of personal files, offices, closets and laundry areas that continues today.
Still hungry, Yizhar acquired his real estate licence at 28. Yizhar and his spouse and business partner Preston then formed Gilady and Still Investments LLC. which currently holds 8 investment rental properties throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
