Spotlight on Ron
Congratulations to Ron Brannen, underground project manager, for earning the December 2020 Employee Spotlight!
Gabe Deurloo, underground division manager, says, “Ron has been an outstanding teammate and vital piece to the Underground division since joining Mark III. He never hesitates to assist and/or help out anyone in anyway, regardless of how full his plate might be. Well respected by his co-workers, customers, and inspectors for his integrity, dedication, and commitment to his job. Rockin’ the horseshoe mustache and dominating beer stein challenges, the man’s a damn hard worker who treats the company like it’s his own! Much appreciated Ron, thank you!”
Matt Lane, underground project engineer, says, “In the short amount of time I’ve worked with Ron, he’s been a huge help and mentor to me. Whenever I’m stumped or need help, he’s always there to lend a hand. He’s a true team player and has been a great addition to the team. I look forward to learning more from Ron and working with him in the future.”
Thank you for your commitment to Mark III, Ron!
