Fun Fact:

I am a twin. I ride a motorcycle and have the video of totaling one 4.5 years ago. I’m on level 4512 on Candy Crush. I grew up in Butler, living near Clarion for 20 years. I met my wife on Christian Mingle, and she is the reason I moved to Uniontown.

What does winning the warrior helmet mean to you?

It is great to be recognized by one of my peers for the positive impact that I make doing my job every day.

What did you or what do you look for when it comes to choosing the next recipient?

Someone who is a team player, that helps other people when able.  A person whose main goal is doing their job correctly, and after completing their duties for the day, they try to keep busy making their area better.

How has COE helped you to get where you are?

Letting me take charge of my area, impacting all the people that work for me without micromanagement.

What goals do you want to achieve and how can COE help get you there?

The only goal I have is to continue to make the receiving department’s culture the same as mine. Always trying to improve the organization of the warehouse and emphasizing teamwork. COE can support this by continuing to do the same in other areas.

What is your favorite part of our employee engagement programs at COE and why?

I like that COE has programs in place and distributes the rewards fairly throughout the company.

What are you most excited for when it comes to our Penguin partnership?

The tickets to the games are great. A lot of people can’t afford the prices, so they don’t have an opportunity to go to games.

What COE value do you think you’re the strongest in and why?

Giving two because they are both part of my DNA: Teamwork and Respect. I live by the golden rule and treat others how I would like to be treated.
