Time to Celebrate: 2021 Promotions

Wrapping up 2021, RiverWild would like to thank all of our hard-working employees. We would like to recognize those who have executed many jobs, going above and beyond. 

Promotions are all about earning your stripes, literally and figuratively. When you see someone with those additional stripes on their hard hat, it’s a representation of the responsibility, accountability, and servant-hearted execution they have displayed. Moving from one team to another requires not just hitting these benchmarks, but performing consistently while exemplifying all 16 of our core values.

Austin Marsland: Annual 2021 Wild Thing Award Winner

Congratulations to Austin Marsland, the Annual 2021 Wild Thing Award Winner! Throughout the year, Austin has exemplified our WILD core values as a leader. 

Hands down, Austin brought the Will to Win. His high drive and work ethic are endless, pushing him to achieve success. Between his time commitment, energy, and hours, Austin carried out the values of our mission. 

His desire to win is unstoppable. He works tirelessly to push our new home construction efforts forward. He also tackles enormous transactions related to rental portfolios and the farm. 

Connecting with others around the office shows his true compassion for our employees. He also worked hard to bring forward new software to increase operational efficiencies. 

By having an efficient and effective system for the company, he checks things off his to-do list at a fast pace. Something that people may not realize is that Austin completes so many things no one even knows about.

Congratulations to Austin Marsland on his big win! Our company would not be where it is today without him!

2021 Compassion Award Winner: Eric Gutierrez

Each day, OneCompassion strives and encourages others to live compassionately. Not only does this mean to serve each other but to also serve our community. To do so, one may go out of their way to better others, often when it’s inconvenient. Without order or question, one seeks out those opportunities day in and day out. 

Serving our community goes beyond personal benefit. It is all about dedicating time, energy, and effort towards a bigger cause. Whether it is through volunteering or giving financially, any act of kindness serves both each other and the community. 

Through an ample amount of humility and consideration for others, OneCompassion recognizes Eric Gutierrez as the 2021 Compassion Award recipient. Throughout the year Eric went above and beyond by helping our people division and marketing teams to develop bilingual communications. Being a servant leader to his team, Eric has helped our Spanish-speaking employees stay engaged and informed. 

During the holiday season, Eric volunteered to help our annual Holiday Ministry. He continued to help us communicate with Spanish-speaking families. Along with communicating, Eric helped contact 17 of our 107 families to determine needs, gifts, and scheduled delivery times. Our team is so grateful for Eric as he has taught us valuable language skills and his dedication to serve others along with OneCompassion. 

With a Will to Win and a big heart, we congratulate Eric Gutierrez on winning the 2021 Compassion Award. We greatly appreciate his humble service and contribution to the community!

Tucker Hobbs: 2021 Annual Wild Factor Award Winner

Congratulations to Tucker Hobbs on winning the 2021 Annual Wild Factor Award! 

Tucker Hobbs is an excellent example of what it means to be WILD. Now with a navy hard hat, his teammates can look up to Tucker, his leadership, and his knowledge on ways to apply our core values every day.

Two summers ago, Tucker was only an intern. Developing a will to win, he worked alongside Nick Kerley. He has grown tremendously at what he does helping him earn a promotion to the coordination level. Each day his grit, determination, and mission to impact and develop people shine through his work. 

Bringing that W to work allowed Tucker to be impacted and developed by others with more experience and is willing to be taught. He even turned down an opportunity to go on the project coordination team to gain field experience and grow his career in the field. 

Being intentionally adaptable can also be seen in Tucker. From different crews, job sites, and roles, his flexibility allowed for greater success. With each project, Tucker embraces change and holds himself accountable. 

Working alongside his teammates, Tucker lives compassionately. You can see how much he cares about our people and company. 

His disciplined execution stands out as he embraces a safety mindset. He tries each day to be efficient, especially with our fast-paced culture. 

Providence is so grateful for all that Tucker has done for the company. From intern to full time he brought that W while being impacted and developed. 

Congratulations to Tucker Hobbs on a job well done!

Marcos Orozco: December 2021 Wild Factor Award Winner

Congratulations to Marcos Orozco for winning our 2021 December Wild Factor Award!

Marcos has brought an infectious attitude since day one. He came to providence 2 ½ years ago willing to learn and grow in the field. 

His enthusiasm for excellence as an operator shows through his hard work and dedication to his job. Working on the clearing crew, he faced many challenges but overcame them with strength and smiles. 

His hard work paid off as he is now promoted to the Coordinator role. Every day he embraces the culture of Providence and all of our core values. 

Congratulations to Marcos on a job well done! 

Jenna McKeel: December 2021 Wild Thing Award Winner

Jenna McKeel stepped into their role with a limited time to prepare for major amounts of responsibility. She is a go-getter that accomplished so many things for OneCompassion! 

By adapting to new systems, Jenna continued to foster a culture of Compassion for the entire company. Connecting with others in the community not only has helped build our brand but impact and develop others. 

She knocked it out of the park with our Holiday Ministry! Jenna helped OneCompassion serve the most families we have ever reached before! 

Congratulations, Jenna McKeel!
