Jamal Barbour: 2020 Annual Wild Factor Winner

Jamal Barbour: 2020 Annual Wild Factor Winner

Once per year, we select someone from our Building Team as the annual Wild Factor award winner. This is considered a great honor in our company, as it signifies that the individual has exemplified all of our core values and is considered to be the WILDest of us all.

Congratulations to Jamal Barbour, the 2020 annual Wild Factor award winner! He has shown a Will to Win, Intentional Adaptability, Lives Compassionately, and Disciplined Execution on a high level and is an example of what all of our team members strive for when it comes to performance and values.

Jamal came into PC from a completely different background than what we do on a daily basis. He has transitioned through many different roles as a result of his Will to Win. Each role faced him with new challenges and he embraces each one with a tremendous work ethic, putting in extra time needed to master that moment.Jamal person is especially excellent at flexibility and purpose-driven versatility and it has had such an impact on our larger team. 

Jamal always takes on challenges with a positive attitude and tremendous care for his crew. His ability to be flexible with his scope of work and adapt frequently, is unrivaled. He was thrust into a lead man role when his supervisor left unexpectedly last year and took on the new challenge head on and with a big smile. As he rose to the occasion, Jamal was deservingly promoted to our Coordination Team in 2020, which earned him a stripe on his hard hat.

Known for having the best smile in PC, everyone loves working with Jamal! He helps teach his teammates the same way he was brought up, exemplifying what it looks like to grow as a leader in this company. If we ever need volunteers on Saturdays or a man to give an extra hand, everyone knows they can count on him to come alongside his team and help out.

When it comes to Disciplined Execution, this core value seems to fall the wayside if a person hits the first three core values, but not with Jamal. He dominated the jobs he was asked to do in 2020. Yearning to know his production rates and where his crew needed to be, to be deemed successful on that job. He takes his time gathering the facts and game planing before jumping right in on projects. He owns his mistakes as well, which rarely happen on his jobs. One of the major highlights with him in 2020 was that through all the growth, the promotions, the bigger jobs, and all the hype, he never lost his humility and took pride in the quality of his finished product. 

This WILD one has earned his stripes both literally and figuratively, as evidenced by a promotion last year. Congratulations, Jamal Barbour on being the well-deserved winner of 2020 Wild Factor Annual Award!

Tony Maxwell: December 2020 Wild Factor Award Winner

Tony Maxwell: December 2020 Wild Factor Award Winner

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.

Robert Brownfield: October 2020 Wild Factor Award Winner

Robert Brownfield: October 2020 Wild Factor Award Winner

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!

Kenneth Phillips: September 2020 Wild Factor Award Winner

To have a Will to Win means to be a self-starter with an unwavering drive to compete and achieve success.

Kenneth Phillips won our September 2020 Wild Factor Award for having a Will to Win. He leads the way in achieving success and has moved us forward with his work ethic.

Kenneth came to us brand new to the construction industry starting on the roller. He quickly moved up to the 30 ton Articulated Off Road Dump Truck. He has shown great improvement in his position, always wanting to better tomorrow than his load counts today. 

In September he set a new PC record by getting 145 loads in one day on our Tractor Supply job site. That computes to moving over 4,350 cubic yards in a single day! 

Kenneth has helped train our new guys, always wanting to pass on his knowledge to the next man up. He is a great ambassador for our company and a consistent force on our grading crews. Congratulations on an award well-deserved, Kenneth!

Johnny Tamayo: August 2020 Wild Factor Award Winner

To have Disciplined Execution is to exemplify operational excellence through safety, accountability, and an efficient, fast-paced environment.

Johnny Tamayo won our August 2020 Wild Factor Award for having Disciplined Execution. Specifically, Johnny nails it when it comes to operational excellence and accountability and really sets the standard for members of our team.

Johnny is the locomotive for our water line crew. He wins the day with consistent and constant effort, always ready to work each day and willing to help train the new guys to the trade. He has been a rock on our waterline crew with the constant change that has hit them, always keeping a positive attitude. He took the Woodard Oaks project head on, smoking through the schedule, finishing the waterline 2 weeks ahead of schedule on a 58 lot project. 

Johnny was one of our first builders to be trained in utilities and has come a long way since his start. We are all proud of the progress and skills that he has developed over the past 2.5 years! Congratulations, Johnny.

To have a Will to Win means to be a self-starter with an unwavering drive to compete and achieve success.

Jack Diebolt won our July 2020 Wild Factor Award for having a Will to Win. 

If you want to know what it looks like to have an unwavering drive from day one, look no further than Jack! He is dependable, humble, has a positive attitude, and is an exemplary  teammate.

Jack has come a long way since he joined our team. He came on board with One27 having no home building experience. From day one, this person has been determined to learn and grow. He constantly asks questions to expand his skills, he puts in the time- late nights and weekends to be better each and every day.

His biggest accomplishment to date is how he was able to push Walton Farm forward and pushed the single family detached project forward. He is well deserving of this award and has earned his stripes both literally and figuratively, as evidenced by his recent promotion. 

Congratulations on your award and your promotion, Jack! Way to go.
