They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. So when Tony’s son asked him if he would hire his soon to be brother-in-law, who appeared more suited for a golf course than a job site, he kept an open mind and gave Travis Halliday a shot. Travis didn’t have any experience in our trade, but he’s a quick study! It became apparent early on, on a hot day when they were on a job that was particularly tough and dirty. Travis did not hesitate or give up. He jumped in with both feet and got it done!
Travis is not only much tougher than he looks, but he is also very intelligent. He understands complex systems and is not afraid to figure things out on his own. In the short time that Travis has worked for us, he has gone from the green helper to the lead on a fairly large and complicated project in downtown LA.
As Tony looks at the end of his career and thinks about who will continue the Retrofit legacy, it gives him great comfort to know that Travis is ready and willing to pick up the gauntlet and carry on. Tony is very proud of him and he has a very promising future!
