De Anne Hayhurst

De Anne Hayhurst does many, many things well. She truly exemplifies all three Western Window Systems core values. But if there’s one of them that most accurately applies to the custom inside sales manager, it would have to be partnership.

“Of all our core values that De Anne has truly mastered, I believe it is that one,” says Andrew Darr, vice president of custom sales. “She ALWAYS treats people respectfully and believes in the #oneteam mentality.”

De Anne, who has been with the company since September 1995, is known as someone who cares deeply about the entire Western Window Systems team as well as the company’s external customers.

“Her commitment to excellence shows up in everything she does,” says Darr.

She also is consistently looking for ways to make the company better and to find ways to make various Western Window Systems processes more efficient. And she does it all with conviction.

“De Anne doesn’t settle for mediocrity,” Darr says. “I am proud to work with her and enjoy watching her lead our company to new heights!”

Congratulations to De Anne Hayhurst, Western Window Systems’ manager of the quarter.
