Hi Andrew! What is your role at Harris?
I am the Branch Manager of the Whitehall, PA branch. We just celebrated our one year anniversary, it's great to see the progress our team has been making.
What lead you to a career with Harris?
Its actually a funny story, James O’Connor, currently the Queens, NY Branch Manager, and I worked together at Rollins Transportation. James left Rollins and then joined the Harris team a few months later, he then contacted me that there was an opening at Harris, once I talked to the team I was ready to join the Harris Pride.

My first job definitely wasn`t construction related, it was actually working bingo at my grammar school ST. Aedan’s in Jersey City, NJ.
Describe Harris in three words:
Only three? People, Pride, Passion.
