To learn, stay motivated, and show off your potential, there’s nothing quite like taking charge at work. And for Daniel Thompson, panel processing lead for Western Window Systems, taking on new responsibilities comes naturally.
“Daniel understands every job in the building,” says Western Window Systems production manager Chris Allgood. “He was one of the original members who got the night shift going. Now he’s part of a two-man team that is systematically improving the CNC.”
Thompson started with the company in 2007 in the window department. From there, he’s held positions on the frame, panel, and CNC teams. Thompson has further expanded his role by taking on the security of the building and acting as gatekeeper of the storeroom. In the core value of partnership, he’s trained nearly every employee in the door department for his shift.
And when it comes to sacrifice, Thompson knows that, too.
“He cancelled his vacation because we needed him,” says Josh Stegall, custom door manager at Western Window Systems. “He consistently beats our expectations.”
Congratulations to Daniel Thompson, Western Window Systems’ shop employee of the month for February.
