More About Josh

More About

Which of these core values (Integrity, Quality, Consistency and Teamwork) do you most identify with, and what does it mean to you?

Quality is my favorite core value, to me this is what our long-term customers look for. I have had the good fortune to work on the same campuses for years. The quality and long-term effect of our work is what they appreciate the most.

What is your ideal room temperature, and why?

71 to 73 degrees because you do not become chilled at rest or hot when moving around. It generates less temperature complaints.

What is your absolute favorite thing about working for EAB?

The people. I grew up with three of our other employees (we all met at church as kids) and have formed long lasting relationships with many others. EAB is staffed by smart, hardworking, independently motivated, good people.

What did you want to be when you were little?

A police officer. I was raised by my grandfather, who was a retired policeman. Later, I discovered I was more mechanically minded.

What do you like to do on your days off?

I enjoy woodworking. I have crafted several of the pieces of furniture in my house.
