All spring, we kept hearing Manny’s name pop up from many different people throughout the company. Through asking around and observing more, we feel he is one of the most deserving TMOM’s we’ve ever had. Manny has taken it upon himself to help guide and train some of our newer Mitigation Team Members. He’s been proactive, by making more site visits as the mitigation is going on to help inspect and offer suggestions that lead to the delivery of great quality service.
Manny has done a great job with the “1 on 1 Notes,” he’s given to his team and maintained a balanced approach when handing out appreciation and constructive criticism. His leadership has been validated twice; one with the feedback that his team gave about his leadership, but also by getting multiple TMOM nominations in consecutive months.
We’ve been very impressed with Manny’s “Ownership Thinking” and looking at ways to help the company, even in aspects that are not directly in his job description. He has responded to after-hours calls to help our customers and helped the mitigation team when they’ve experienced heavy volume due to recent storms. He exemplifies what a team player is: “Doing whatever it takes to not let his team down and offer help without being asked”.
Thank you Manny aka Munoz de Hernandez!

He would only because he is the only one nowadays who would use a handsaw to cut a 4×4.

I love my house and my land. My chickens and Animals, family and wildlife make it my favorite place. I know that’s simple but it’s true.
Any Thank You’s?
I was new to this roll in the beginning of this year. Many team members were vital in me getting started. Mike Heath and Todd Thompson up at state college in the very beginning. As months went on, Alex Vigh has helped me out with any types of questions I had or still have. Sometimes I run into tough situations and Scott Fry has given good guidance and direction leading to a resolution. Lastly the group of carpenters Kevin Gruber, Jason Moll, Ron Chantolfosky and Harley Miller. This team knows their stuff and lifts each other up. They maintain their quality almost to a fault. They always answer the call when extra help is needed. For all these things I am thankful to everyone !!!
