Travis Bedson was born in North Charleston, South Carolina and was raised by a single father in a former redlined neighborhood in Summerville. Growing up, Travis’s father instilled a strong Christian faith in his son based on the words of Proverbs 22:6, which reads: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Through his father’s guidance Travis learned the value of hard work at a young age, often helping his father complete flooring installation jobs before turning 6 years old. With the stability provided by his beloved grandmother, and the mentorship of numerous teachers and coaches that served as role models throughout his adolescence, Travis was able to navigate a difficult childhood and develop the values that have led him to where he is today.
As a young adult Travis Bedson relied on his work ethic and tenacity to pave his path through life, working in jobs across a broad range of industries and learning the skills to succeed along the way. Travis ultimately found success in the construction industry and quickly gained the respect of clients and peers as he began taking on larger jobs. This experience led to the beginning of what is now known as CNT Foundations. For two years, Travis lived out of CNT’s office, pouring everything he had into the company which rapidly grew to a regional leader in the foundation repair industry.
Today, Travis still serves as CEO of CNT Foundations, but feels blessed that his company has grown to the point where he can spend more of his time with his wife Yuliya and two young daughters Lucy and Juliet.
