Episode XV of our ‘Meet the team’ Leadership series. Today I got the chance to interview Todd, who was nominated by our previous interviewee David. Todd is our New York Region Sales Manager, based out of our Albany branch. On Facebook we run an album called “Faces & Places of AH Harris” and we also feature snapshots of our crew on Instagram. But we want to give some insights into who our company leaders are, what their background is and include some ‘personal touch’ that goes beyond what you would find on LinkedIn. Let's hear it from Todd!
Hey Todd, good to see you. Remind me, what is your role with the company, what are you responsible for here at AH Harris?
Morning! Thanks for having me. I'm AH Harris New York Region's Sales Manager, covering Upstate New York and Western Vermont. I'm working with the Inside & Outside Sales group to provide outstanding service to our customers.
How long have you been with the organization?
Oh boy, its coming up to 30 years! I started on June 3, 1985.
Have you always worked in the construction sector or did you change industries during your career, Todd?
I studied Construction Technologies in college and started work with AH Harris right after graduation in 1985. So yes, always in this industry.
What does ‘Harris Pride’ mean to you?
Harris Pride means to me the collective and dedicated professional employees who represent this great company and who provide the highest quality products and services to the construction industry.
What is one thing you want our customers to know?
That AH Harris is committed to being a leader in the industry and bring value to everything we do. We also love to hear your feedback and strive to constantly improve our operations and offerings. Come talk to us!
And do you have a piece of advice for current and/or prospect employees?
The Construction Industry is very competitive, but offers great rewards. AH Harris is a company that offers family values and great career opportunities for its employees. Over the 30 years I have been working here we probably tripled in size and you can check our current vacancies online [http://www.ahharris.com/about/careers.php].
Anything else you would want to share today?
Yes. AH Harris has provided me with the opportunity to make many great relationships. Some of my best friends are people I work with on a daily to regular basis: co-workers, customers and vendors.
Aww, that's nice! Thanks so much for your time, Todd. Just one more question - who do you nominate for our next leadership spotlight?
Perfect, I'll reach out to John. Have a great day.
