A small-town girl from Lake County, California, Letitia Hanke grew up dreaming of a music career. Recognized from childhood for her musical talents, she attended Sonoma State University envisioning a future in the performing and recording arts. When the opportunity arose, she took a position at a prominent roofing company and managed the business for 8 years. In 2004, she started her own roofing company Alternative Roofing Solutions and Sonoma/Napa/Marin Seamless Gutters now known as ARS Roofing, Gutters & Waterproofing. In June of 2018 she will celebrate 22 years in the industry, 14 as CEO. She currently employs 23 full-time, year-round employees servicing the North Bay.
Some of her accomplishments include receiving the 2017 Entrepreneur of the year award by the National 100 Black Women Coalition,2016 North California Small Business Award by the California Black Chamber of Commerce, a 2015 Woman in Business award, the 2015 Entrepreneurial/Innovative Spirit Award winner by the North Bay Leadership Council, 2014 Small Business of the Year Award from Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsome, 2008 Spirit of Sonoma Honoree award winner and most recently the 2018 Walmart community playmaker award by the Golden State Warriors.
Letitia’s vision to advocate for the disadvantaged inspired her to start the 501c3 nonprofit foundation called The LIME Foundation (www.thelimefoundation.org). The Foundation helps create a better quality of life for the underserved community. Letitia hopes to continue to inspire young men and women that they are in charge of their own destiny.
