What does working at Vallourec offer you?
Vallourec has expanded my scope far beyond Northeast Ohio. Under any other circumstance, I would not be able to be part of a global community of experts with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working. The opportunity to learn is everywhere, in every aspect of the business. The people in our facility drive me to do better through their extensive efforts and ingenuity. The people are primarily what makes this a ‘Great Place to Work.’
Who are you outside of work?
I am a very proud father of a 14-year-old daughter, Harper, who is an amazing artist and golfer, and a 6-year-old son, Calvin, who has the best sense of humor in the world. I am a happy husband who will be married to the perfect woman for 20 years next year. We all enjoy staying in our camper at every opportunity, swimming, fishing and playing with our dog, Harry.
What piece of advice would you give someone starting out in their career?
When you enter a room, never assume you are the smartest. If you do, then you never learn anything. Instead, find the smartest person in the room and learn all you can. Never stop learning!
