Our Blog series, “Meeting Maxons!” continues this week. We will hear from Daniel, a Senior Project Manager, about his experiences at Maxons.
Q: How long been with Maxons?
A: 12 years
Q: Do you remember what your impressions were of the company after being here for about a month?
A: It was fast paced. Very professional. I pretty quickly realized it was something that I wanted to do and was enjoying.
Q: What was the first thing you had to learn when joining the team?
A: Everything! The computer side of things – doing the data entry. I had been a field guy prior and wasn’t on computers often. Still a challenge of mine, but has vastly improved over the years.
Q: What is the most important thing you have learned since you have been here?
A: A high level of professionalism. I have a saying I like – “It’s all about the service, the service, the service and then the respect.”
Q: Why do you have a passion for this industry?
A: I get to help people that are in need and in the middle of a crisis. I am trained and help keep them calm and give them a comfort level with Maxons and myself. I work well with chaos!
Q: Which company core value speaks to you the most – and why?
A: Results. Making it happen. And I also feel strongly about Improvement. We are in an ever changing world, and if you ever feel you are the best, you are done. There is always room to learn.
Q: What is your favorite Maxons story?
A: We handled a 20k square foot first floor of a building, large job with a variety of damage. I managed the job correctly, and we were paid quickly because everyone involved was so happy.
But what I am really excited about is that this job is still used internally to train Project Managers on how to take loss photos that show our professionalism, scope of work and what we can accomplish on jobs. It set a trend of more impressive loss photo documentation.
