What is your role with REV? How would you describe your role in a few words?
I am one of the owners and founders of the company. My role is to mentor, provide guidance, and assist with technical support, business development. My job tasks are varied as I do anything that the company needs to thrive.
What is your favorite thing about your role and working in this industry?
I love this industry and am very fortunate to have found a career that I am passionate about right out of the gate. It is a fast-paced industry with new challenges every day and I am still learning so much every single day. As for the role, being an executive of the company certainly has its challenges and worries, but it is important work. My approach is that I need to feed my family and 75 other families too. I take that responsibility very seriously.
What would you say is your most special skill in this line of work?
I would say it is building a strong team, because without that team, REV would not exist and certainly not thrive. I think that I am a good judge of people and try to work with people that fit our corporate culture.
Has there been a particular moment/event that has stood out to you in your time with
I believe the scariest and the most exciting moment in my time here at REV was when we moved in to our current location. We only had the verbal commitment from 2 of our major clients to provide contracts dependant on us, securing a building of this size. I remember the ownership standing in the big empty bay wondering what we had just done! As we now know, it was the right decision and will allow us to grow well beyond our current volume of work.
What is an interesting fact about you?
I come from a long line of entrepreneurs with my grandparents, parents and brothers all owners of small businesses in the farming and oil industries. I believe that it is in my blood to take risks and important for me to build not only a company, but a legacy.
