We have reached episode XXX of our ‘Meet the Team’ leadership spotlight interviews! Today, I got the opportunity to talk with new Harris Pride member, Jake Preissler. Jake is the first recruiter here A.H. Harris and celebrating his one month with the company this week. Within his few short weeks of being with the company, Jake has jumped in with both feet. This is a great opportunity for Jake to introduce himself so without further ado, let's hear from Jake!
We had quite the year here at Harris. Our 5 regions had record breaking seasons. Our products, services and solutions have been utilized from Maine to the Carolinas, serving contractors, construction companies and homeowners alike. We added more people to our teams, upgraded facilities and experienced healthy business growth which we do not take for granted. Our focus on customer service, quality products and having the right team members in the right positions helped increase customer satisfaction and improved our word-of-mouth brand recognition and perception. 2015 also saw some significant growth in our online communities. All our social media channels increased not only in size, but also in engagement. Some highlights.
It was first known as Armistice Day to mark the end of World War I at the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. In recognition of the efforts of World War II veterans, President Eisenhower in 1954 signed legislation creating Veterans Day with the goal of honoring all American veterans. Every year, we set aside Veterans Day to honor all the men and women who’ve served our country in uniform. We celebrate veterans from generations past. We welcome a new generation of veterans home from war. And we thank our future veterans, still serving at home and abroad. Within our organization we have associates who have served in the U.S. Army as an engineer, been stationed Offutt Air Force base in Bellevue, NE, served on the USS Midway and USS Kitty Hawk, served in the NH Air National Guard, and currently serve in the military as a Staff Sergeant.

The cold weather is upon us, which means we need to take extra care in our concrete. A.H. Harris is your choice for tips & solutions for handling the cold this season. Concrete placed during cold weather will develop sufficient strength and durability to satisfy intended service requirements only if it is properly produced, placed and protected.
