Our Blog series, “Meeting Maxons!” continues this week. We will hear from Kevin, a Regional Manager, about his experiences at Maxons.
Q: How long have you been with Maxons?
A: Almost 8 years.
Q: Do you remember what your impressions were of the company after being here for about a month?
A: I was coming from Pennsylvania – but felt there was still a very family friendly atmosphere – more so then I expected for a NYC firm.
Q: What was the first thing you had to learn when joining the team?
A: That it takes a lot more effort to communicate and handle claims on a personal level in the city than it did in the suburbs. And then the different internal processes.
Q: What is the most important thing you have learned since you have been here?
A: The company likes to have fun with each other and enjoy working with each other, both at work and away from work. That is rare.
Q: Why do you have a passion for this industry?
A: Because I get to help people everyday, they need guidance and assistance through their emergency and I can help. And our clients are grateful for what we do, and our ability to provide prompt, quality service.
Q: Which company core value speaks to you the most – and why?
A: Teamwork – everybody here is always willing to pitch and help anyone else in the company.
Q: What is your favorite Maxons story?
A: Our perseverance during hurricane Sandy. Many of our employees were without electricity and water in their own homes, but they persevered and continued to help others during that challenging time.
