Tell us a bit about the responsibilities you manage each day at M&M.
In a nut shell, I help wrangle all the moving parts of a project into an organized flow, which ideally results in meeting our customers’ expectations and timelines. From helping to insure accuracy in the planning stages, to meetings with customers and contractors to develop timelines, to scheduling shipments and personnel, I help ensure that we meet every customer’s expectation from beginning to end of the process.
What did you do before working at M&M?
Since I was old enough to walk I worked on our families Dairy Farm until the farm fell on hard times and I was forced to pursue a different path in life. On a whim I decided to spend a summer helping a friend install a large office furniture installation and the rest is history.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
I would have to say my favorite part is that every project has its own set of challenges, which makes every project different from the last. That is what keeps me engaged during the process and gives me a sense of satisfaction with the completion.
What’s the most difficult problem you’ve had to solve?
My most difficult problem is one that is continuously present and that is the logistics of trying to dovetail labor and equipment resources with shipping and construction timelines that are in constant flux.
What’s your favorite workplace story?
There have been plenty of practical jokes played on me through the years but one time I got back by filling a co-workers car up with Styrofoam packing peanuts – and I mean filled to the roof. He never left his sun roof open nor pranked me again.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I enjoy hunting, fishing, golfing, woodworking, and spending time with my family.
Love sea food – all types.
What’s one thing on your bucket list?
I would love to go on a hunting/fishing adventure in Alaska someday.
What’s an essential item you can’t live without?
Hmmmm, I’m going to go with MY WIFE – just in case she ever reads this.
What’s your favorite destination you’ve been to before, and why?
Though I’m no world traveler, I’ve been a few places. But my favorite place continues to be a little hunk of hunting woods just down the road in Richland Co. I spend a lot of my free time there. It’s a quiet, beautiful place that can magically suck all the stress right out of a person.
