Meet the Ritz Team

It’s all about the team.

We’re so proud of our team at Ritz Design Build. With Design and Build functions under one roof, you’ll enjoy the efficient communication. We’re a fun group of people and we’re a pleasure to work with. In fact, many of our clients becomes our friends.

Ed Ritter


Ed is our fearless leader and the driving force behind Ritz Design Build and proudly helps the Ritz Design Build team exceed customer expectations. Ed brings his decades of experience and can often anticipate possible problems and knows what to do. He’s very generous with his knowledge and often shares his home addition and home remodeling wisdom with homeowners so they can get the best value for their money—whether or not they become clients. Of course, it’s no surprise when they then elect to go with Ritz Design Build to make their dreams a reality. Ed is an expert fisherman and loving Grandpa in his spare time.

Mark Clay

Mark Clay

Project Manager

Mark is another one of our field construction project managers here at Ritz Design Build. Ironically, he has the same first name as our other project manager but very different personality. Also with many years of experience in home additions and remodeling in San Diego- Mark Clay is a laid back specialist. Always a smile on his face and a skip in his step, he gets things done on time and within budget. He’s a very hard worker, and a great motivator because he teaches by example. We are proud to have him in our Ritz Family of team players because he is just so damn good, and personable. In his spare time he spends quality time with his wife, daughter and two sons- the eldest that seems to be following in Dad’s footsteps.



Operations + Accounting

Olga is another friendly face of Ritz Design Build and she helps keeps things running smoothly around the office. We all have Olga to thank for developing efficient office systems. She also runs the books for the company and handles the payroll. She is happily married with two children and is quite efficient at multitasking- for she is even in the process of obtaining her MBA!




Cassie is a rescue from the Riverside pound, she is about 5 years old, and constantly wags her tail. She is the smartest, sweetest doggie in the world and stays mostly at Leslie’s feet when she occasionally comes to the office to bless us with her presence. She knows how important Ritz Design Build’s business is so stays very quiet- although, when prompted, she can “sit”, “lay down”, and “shake a paw”.
