One of the things that has made Retrofit successful is the willingness for our employees to embrace change. Tony hired Jess because he needed a person that could do Auto Cad. Jess not only had that experience, but he came highly recommended by someone Tony trusts. Jess was able to perform the job, but it turned out that there was a better role for him to play. Jess is now solely responsible for acquiring all the material, equipment, parts and tools that we use. On top of that, he orders cranes, forklifts, scissor lifts, and every other kind of odd thing that we need to complete our jobs. This would have the normal person screaming and yelling, but not Jess. He stays calm and works it out, which is no small feat. Jess makes it look easy, the sign of a true pro.
Without sounding like a broken record, it’s guys like Jess that make this company great. The core values of honesty, integrity, loyalty, and love of family; that is what Jess is made of.
