Q: What is an average day like for you on the job?
I’m in and out of the office a lot. I’m the point of contact for my clients throughout our projects, so I spend a lot of time in client meetings. I visit work sites at least weekly to make sure everything’s going as planned. I also work in the office scheduling projects, managing subcontractors and handling other issues as they come up.
Q: What was your favorite project so far?
I recently met with a new client who asked me that, and I really couldn’t name one. Basically I take each project personally. It’s the client’s dream and I want to help fulfill their dream for their property. Even on a commercial project, I tend to connect with the people
I’m working with on a personal level. I really enjoy being out with clients, watching their projects come together and giving them what they were expecting. That’s my favorite aspect of the job.
Q: What do you like least?
Probably the most challenging aspect is keeping the day-to-day schedule rolling, keeping projects on schedule.
Q: What is it like to work at Weaver?
I think we all really enjoy the team spirit here. When something comes up we all work
together to make decisions and do what needs to be done. The team is very supportive, including the owners and the rest of the people on the teams. I mostly work with Ken, but Randy is great, too.
Q: What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
I have two daughters and I enjoy spending time with them, watching them play soccer and doing things as a family. I also enjoy doing things with my wife, going to dinner or the movies or just spending time with her. I like doing house projects. It seems like there’s always something that needs to be kept after around the house. My wife really enjoys landscaping and I like helping her with that, making new beds and planting.
Actually, she takes it pretty easy on me.
