Today we introduce part 59 of our ‘Meet the Team’ series with Keith Varga! Keith is one of our Account Managers located out of our Whitehall, PA branch and just celebrated 1 year with us this past April! We feel it is important to get to know each and every one of our employees, so let’s hear what Keith has to say about his time here at A.H.Harris!
Hi Keith! What is your role at Harris?
I am the Account Manager for our Whitehall, PA location.
What lead you to a career with Harris?
I was working for a Carpentry contractor in Philly and wanted to get back into sales and when I had the chance, I applied for an accounting position with Harris. One year later, here I am!
What was your first job ever?
When I was only 12 years old I started cutting grass in my neighborhood, I had about 20 yards to do each day.
Wow, that’s hard work! Describe Harris in three words:
Actually, I have 4 words! One Team, Our Team!
What is your biggest accomplishment at Harris so far?
My biggest accomplishment would have to be when I opened the Allentown Store with the New York Region! While Harris was already a known brand for construction contractors in the market, we were missing the actual store presence.
What is something working at Harris has taught you?
A lot! I never did anything with concrete before and then I came to Harris! We have so many experts in our teams, I learn new things every day.
So far, what has been your favorite memory at Harris?
My favorite memory was when we ordered a birthday cake for our Regional Vice-President, Dave Calicchia when it wasn’t his birthday. It was hilarious!
What does Harris Pride mean to you?
Harris Pride means People, Pride, Passion!
Anything else about you?
In my free time I volunteer coaching football at Liberty High School.
That’s awesome! Thank you so much for taking time to speak with us, Keith!
