Spotlight on Greg
Congratulations to Greg Myers, plumbing trainee, for earning the September 2020 Employee Spotlight!
Danny O’Brien, plumbing foreman, says, “Greg is extremely reliable, hard working and enjoyable to be around. I have seen Greg mature over the past couple years and it has improved his mindset and capabilities when it comes to his work on the job site. I see Greg’s desire to improve on a daily basis, when asking code references or why things are installed certain ways. I look forward to seeing Greg progress with Mark III and someday becoming a foreman.”
Thank you for your commitment to Mark III, Greg!
What is your favorite Mark III core value (teamwork, innovation, integrity, work-hard-play-hard, transparency) and how does it play a part in your everyday role & responsibilities?
My favorite core value has to be work-hard play-hard, anyone who has worked with me knows this. I give 100% all the time whether it’s jumping in the trenches, hanging pipe, or cleaning up the job site. I believe that a solid work ethic is key in life.
How do our core values play into your everyday role & responsibilities?
I practice the five core values daily while I’m on and off the job site. They help me hold myself to a higher standard when working with coworkers, other contractors, and situations in my daily life.
How has Mark III helped you in your career development?
I got hired at Mark III with no construction experience, prior to joining the team I was a manager at a Five Guys. Mark III has taught me from the ground up, now I’m going to school to become a journeyman and I’m top three in my class.
What is your proudest moment at Mark III?
My proudest moment at Mark III is when I drive past a project I have worked on and see it up and running. I think its awesome to watch the project progress and know I am a part of it.
What do you do outside of work?
I like to fish, hike, take random drives to places I’ve never been and try new restaurants. Recently, we welcomed our new daughter Aubrey and I enjoy spending time with her and living the dad life.
Do you have a favorite book, movie, or music genre?
My favorite book is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. My favorite movies are Smokey and the Bandit, My Cousin Vinny, and Groundhog Day. I love all kinds of music: blues, bluegrass, motown, and metal.
