Employee Spotlight

August 2015



     Shortly after Tony started dating his wife Kelly, he was introduced to Joe. Joe considers Kelly to be his “bonus” mom and he screened Tony pretty thoroughly to make sure that he was worthy of dating her. Not only did Tony impress Joe, but Joe impressed Tony as well.

      When Joe’s plumbing work started to slow down, Tony offered him a job with Retrofit. It didn’t take Joe very long to adapt his plumbing skills to the type of work that Retrofit does. Joe’s integrity and work ethic on the job are outstanding.  It’s refreshing to see someone from the “next” generation with “old school” principles.  When Retrofit found itself without a shop foreman, it was an easy decision to promote Joe to the position. It’s probably one of the toughest jobs at Retrofit because of all it’s moving parts and Joe has exceeded Tony’s expectations in the role.  Joe is definitely a key player and Tony is proud to have him on his team, personally and professionally!
