strategies and field operations," stated Kerr. "I look forward to his leadership

As the general manager, Mendoza will be responsible for managing the day-to-day
operations for the branch, which has both commercial and residential sales
activities. He will also oversee the quality and production of
management/non-management personnel and will be responsible for attaining all
financial and operational objectives.
"I believe that I'm in a people business. No matter what our individual role is
in the company, we have the opportunity to do something good for someone else,"
commented Mendoza. "I love seeing individuals succeed at their job. Chances are,
I've experienced their role and, from successes and failures, can offer support
to help them succeed. I'm excited to share what I've learned and to learn from
other great team players."
