Troy hit his 2-year mark at EGR last month. With a background in sales, he brings a valuable set of skills to the estimating team. His salesman history could also explain why he wore a full suit to his interview where the company attire is construction casual – which more or less means shorts or jeans and a hat. Nevertheless, he quickly adjusted to the culture and absorbed a great deal of industry knowledge. His calm and observant demeanor allows him to read the room and his customers to understand their needs and get big wins. While he’s never met a vegetable he’s ever liked, Troy is always willing to meet the demands of EGR’s clients and partners to ensure a lasting relationship and excellent service.
