In a year during which the local economy and the residential remodeling industry weakened, TriFection posted another record sales year, our sixth consecutive. The company recently hosted its annual company Christmas party and awards dinner. Our employees, contractors, and vendors gathered for a private event to celebrate another year of significant accomplishments and a job well done. One of the highlights of the evening was arguably the karaoke rendition of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing from TriFection owners Jeff Roberts and Jeff Reina. However, the room was filled with anticipation when they announced the following company award winners for 2016:
Rookie of the Year Award– MacKinley Donaldson, Selections Assistant. Stepping into a role with high demands and a steep learning curve, MacKinley embraced the TriFection way and quickly applied herself with a strong work ethic and attention to detail. She made an immediate, positive impact and elevated the quality and efficiency of our tile designs. She contributed to a significant improvement in our internal procedures this year. We thank her for all of the effort and dedication.
Jack of a New Trade Award – Jose Gomez, Painter, Cabinet Finisher and Carpenter. After years honing his skills as a top-notch painter and custom cabinet finisher, Jose seized the opportunity to learn how to build cabinets by working alongside our master carpenters. His bright mind, skilled hands and commitment to excellence allowed him to learn our proprietary construction techniques very quickly. He can now build cabinets with minimal oversight and helps TriFection address our growing cabinet production volumes in a number of different ways. His flexibility as a “utility player” is very valuable to us.
Armadillo Award – Mike Landskroener, Assistant Project Manager. Custom remodeling is challenging business. We are constantly presented with a wide range of problems to solve, deadlines to hit, far-reaching logistics to manage and clients to keep happy. Inevitably, issues will crop up for even the best remodelers in the business, but how those issues are addressed is what really separates the good contractors from the bad. Mike earned this somewhat satirical client service award for his quiet, calm demeanor and thick skin when faced with some high-anxiety moments with clients. He is fully committed to client satisfaction and understands that clients are occasionally stressed with work, family or the uncertainties of tearing up and rebuilding a home, particularly for first-timers. He never takes it personally. His professionalism in all situations sets a great example for others.
MVP Award – Dan Bonitatibus, Lead Carpenter & Field Manager. The “Most Valuable Player” award is the top honor awarded each year by TriFection based on collective feedback from owners Jeff Roberts and Jeff Reina, fellow employees, contractors, and our clients. It is given to the person who best demonstrates the knowledge, work ethic, client service and overall professionalism upon which TriFection is built. Dan exemplifies these qualities each day with his dedicated service to the company and our clients. He walked away this year with an overwhelming majority of nominations from his co-workers and our most sincere gratitude for a continuous job well done.
TriFection is very proud to employ these true professionals. Please join us in congratulating them on their well-deserved awards!
