HECTOR RUIZ VOTED HOUSTON AUGUST EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH!


Hector started working with us in 2019. In a previous career, Hector worked in an IT group.


There are a lot of transactions in the warehouse for one person and he interfaces with Project Managers, Project Superintendents and Lead Technicians.

Also, odd jobs seem to come his way as it did earlier in the summer when we had to break-down all the old office furniture in the classroom.

Hector is the first person to arrive in the morning and the one who does a final walk through in the evening.

He must keep an eye on all the trucks and will also make sure that the ones we have parked get driven from time to time. Hector locked down the fort during COVID Spring & Summer 2020 and kept the transactions flowing.


He is former Gold Wing motorcycle driver and a weenie dog owner (who owns who?). Hector will represent the Houston office in the fall motorcycle tour once again reprising his role as easy rider on a Gold Wing. Hector got the opportunity to shoot sporting clays (shotgun golf) last year with Gus at a charity event for Angel Flight that was held in Rosharon.

Comments from Hector’s coworkers

  • “Always punctual and ready to help!”

  • “Not only is he working in the warehouse, but he is also helping out on the field on the weekends.“

  • “Always helping out even going out to the field.”

  • “Hector is always doing his best to help in the warehouse and on the job sites on his free time.”

  • “Always willing to work late and or in the field!! “

THE FUN STUFF

At the August 31st at the 5th Wednesday Pizza gathering, Hector will receive his gift set from behind door #109 in Ron’s office and we will add his name to the plaque in the front lobby alongside the other 2022 Employees of the Month (Joel Orellana, Cris Ortega, Andrew Mueller, Carlos Melo, Debra Sandoval, Ernie Chavez, Marquis Woodard).
