As many of our customers know we have been looking for a replacement for our very talented Production Manager Andrea since January.
Andrea had some opportunities (like going to Africa to help children there) that she just could not pass up. And lets be honest Andrea is a hard act to follow.
We were determined to wait for the right person to come along. Little did we know that the person we were looking for was right under our nose.
Making signs is no more difficult than many jobs out there, but it can be an acquired taste. Imagine that you have to be a great juggler, as you are literally working on 10 jobs at the same time and managing all the many pieces that go into any on custom order.
Laura has been with us since October when she took over for the very popular Crystal. And Laura very quickly impressed with her leadership, self motivation and quickness to learn. She was hoping to learn more about sign making as we grew.
Laura is going to be our new production manager in training. So please welcome her with open arms, she can be a bit of a task master so watch out! Laura has been here since we started our Guaranteed Delivery Service so she knows how important it is to complete jobs in a timely manner AND she is really great at juggling.
SO now that Laura is moving from the front to the back, we are filling that chair with a new face.
She may be new and she may be young but she has tons of experience! Introducing Samantha Kudeba. Samantha comes to us via a couple of great sign shops in the city and has a strong background in design and customer service. One of the great things about Samantha is that she is very passionate about the sign industry, one of the most passionate we have met in some time. She has experience so she knows what she is talking abut and will be a valuable asset to the team.
Welcome Samantha and Congratulations Laura!
