Live Compassionately: a humble and responsible approach to how we serve each other and our community. It is both internal and external. It’s how we treat each other, being fair and humble.
Tony Maxwell won our December 2020 Wild Factor Award for Living Compassionately.
He has excelled at serving his teammates with a heart of compassion. How we do what we do – how we treat people while we’re going about our work – is at the core of what makes this company different.
In construction sometimes the experienced operator or pipe layer can get overlooked. At PC we embrace this veteran and really rely on their knowledge and experience to help train our other teammates. Tony has trained countless other pipe layers and helped tackle one of the toughest water tie’s on our Tractor Supply Site. Working alongside hwy 42, a busy highway, and against a tough terrain.
Tony has always stepped up to the challenge of mentoring and training new teammates and has helped many of our coordinators get to where they are today. He lives compassionately for his teammates.
We are so grateful to have you on the team, Tony! Congratulations.
To have Disciplined Execution means achieving operational excellence through safety, accountability, and an efficient, fast-paced environment.
Matt Bunn won our October 2020 Wild Thing nomination for having Disciplined Execution. He has set the bar in many ways for getting the job done well, consistently, and fast-paced.
Matt helped pave out three times the number of projects we have ever done as a company this year. Most of which happened in the last quarter of the year. He and his team stepped up in a big way, helping us achieve success in unprecedented ways.
He also helped navigate tough schedules and the end of year push between third party clients and internal projects. He overcame those challenges with a can do attitude and smile on his face.
One of Matt’s greatest accomplishments was leading the Safest Crew of the year, with zero incidents! #SafelyCompete He has come a long way in his new profession, with very few failed proof rolls in the month of November.
He truly cares for his crew and the PC family. Congratulations to Matt Bunn, our November WildThing award winner!
Disciplined Execution: we expect operational excellence through safety, accountability, and an efficient, fast-paced environment.
Trevor Viehweg won our July 2020 Wild Factor Award for having Disciplined Execution.
He has really owned it in this area, especially at efficiency and fast pace, which takes intentionality and a sense of purpose about even the smallest tasks.
Trevor is a lead man on our grading crew. He has stepped up to start assuming supervisor duties on this crew for a few months now and is doing great work.
In November, he and his crew managed an import of dirt into the Academy Point projects of over 34,000 cubic yards. This was done in 25 days, which was 6 days ahead of schedule! Talk about a Will to Win! Some days there were over 20 dump trucks coming in and out of the site. Trevor handled the flow with great care for safety and kept a fast paced cycle going.
He has exemplified having a Will to Win with Disciplined Execution in a way that keeps others safe, keeps things moving, and propels PC forward.
Intentional Adaptability: consciously embrace change, through mutual flexibility, strategic innovation, and purpose-driven versatility to advance our people, products, and services.
Robert “Butch” Brownfield won our October 2020 Wild Factor Award for having Intentional Adaptability. He excels at being flexible and going with the flow to help our team continue driving forward despite whatever curve balls may come our way.
Every one of us does things that are not part of the job description. To be flexible is to have a mentality of availability, which Robert has gone above and beyond in. He drives our Flatbed Dump truck which can be one of the most demanding trucks in our fleet. Delivery erosion supplies to pipe materials. Everyone wants this “MVP”, all the time. He handles this with a great attitude and embraces the challenge of his hectic dispatch.
Robert doesn’t shy away from getting out of his truck to work or help secure his load and always wants to lend a hand to whoever needs it. He is team player to the core and we love having him on our team.
Well done, Robert!
To have a Will to Win means to be a self-starter with an unwavering drive to compete and achieve success.
Courtney Ellis won our October 2020 Wild Thing nomination for having a Will to Win. She has excelled this year in having an unwavering drive in ways that have moved us forward as a company through some challenging seasons.
Courtney has consistently shown that she can deliver quality, timely work product. She handles multiple priorities and has an immense knowledge of how our real estate businesses operate. She is efficient and fast-paced and has adapted to changes with relative ease. She has improved on her communication and certainly takes responsibility for her work.
In a year where COVID turned both our work and home environments upside down, Courtney seemed to thrive. She exhibited an extraordinary level of unwavering drive as she not only dealt with changes to her children’s school schedules but also to our work schedule.
Congratulations, Courtney Ellis on winning the October Wild Thing Award! Phenomenal job.
The Triangle Business Journal featured Reid and Jaclyn Smith in the October 2020 edition of Executive Voice: The couple behind Johnston County’s explosive home growth
“It’s been a whirlwind,” Reid Smith said. “We’ve definitely not been able to do this without a lot of great people. We’ve learned a lot with them. Clearly the population has changed, but the cultures and the values and the people are still the same – and we fight hard to keep that culture alive and that small-town feel,” he said. “Even though it’s a little more populated, it’s still the same county I grew up in.”
