As a General Manager, every day brings different challenges and no two days are alike. You can be training the team one minute, then working with sales to develop an account, and then managing inventory. There is a lot of trouble shooting in this role and working with others to develop processes and procedures to define best practice. In addition, you have the opportunity to work with not only sales, but customers, credit, operations and finance working towards best practice and business growth.
Our employees would say the best part of Castle is the people. The teamwork and camaraderie keeps everyone motivated for success. During a particularly grueling system conversion project we turned our training room into a stress breaker room with Nerf guns aimed at Oracle characters on the wall, which kept us upbeat and successful in working together as a team.
I enjoy reading, golf, beach volleyball and pickup games of basketball in the driveway with my family. Castle’s flexible work schedule has allowed me to spend several weekends traveling out of state following our boys’ basketball teams play in several tournaments. For nearly 20 years we have also hosted the O’Mara Golf Open which has had participants from Castle in the various states we’ve traveled.
