Daren R. Young, Owner
Daren is the founder of DRYCO, developing the business for more than 35 years with a core set of values focused on people first that has led to retention of a strong team of leaders and employees. Initially, Young worked as a laborer for his father, and then started DRYCO in 1985 doing driveways in the Bay Area’s high-end Peninsula residential community. With continuing success, he incorporated in 1988 and has continued growing the business based on quality of workmanship and a team of employees who take pride in their work—his company stands by its “3R’s” motto: Reliable, Responsible, and Results-driven.
Daren has a passion for his business and for teaching “the tricks of the trade” to property management professionals. He volunteers much of his time to humanitarian endeavors serving in leadership positions through Rotary International. During his more than two decades in Rotary he has been Club President, Assistant Governor twice, and Lieutenant Governor for his District.
In 2016, he was nominated to be president of The Pavement Network, an exclusive group of nationwide asphalt and concrete industry leaders who provide localized expertise with national coverage. In addition to his professional and volunteer endeavors, Daren is also passionate about his family. Happily married to his wife Sandra for 40 years, they have raised four children, all of whom have previously or currently work in the business. His hobbies include flying his plane, riding his horses, and skiing on both water and snow.

The Pavement Network is a group of independent parking lot maintenance, repair and rehabilitation paving contractors that service the professionally managed property industry. Each member specializes in working with property managers and therefore understands the importance of working in and around tenant operations.
The primary mission of The Pavement Network is to maximize the efficiency of each member company so it can deliver the best service and value to its customers. Pavement Network members exchange “best practices”, conduct group purchasing, and outsource common administrative functions, but maintain their individual status.
The Pavement Network is an exclusive association comprised of paving contractors from across the country. Originally formed in the late 1990’s as a system of checks and balances between non-competing pavement companies, the association has since evolved into something far greater. Today our mission is to provide our real estate industry customers with the best possible service and value. To achieve this goal we have created a revolutionary referral system.
