We are so pleased to announce that on Friday night at our holiday celebration we were able to honor one of our employees with the Robert M. Weigand award. Since he started in 2002 as a carpenter, and grown with us as a company into his position now as the Director of Field Operations, he has shown through and through that he embodies what the Weigand values are all about.
Congratulations Jade Painter, you more than deserve this honor!
