The Crest Industries Culture Corps is a group of team members nominated and recognized by their peers as examples of our Values in action. Each month, one member of the Culture Corps is recognized as a Culture Champion for their outstanding efforts of living our Values and helping our teams, customers and communities grow beyond what we believe is possible. These Culture Champions receive the “Walkie-Talkie Award” for their commitment to walking the talk and living our our Values every day.
We extend trust, build confidence, and hold each other accountable.
We win when we all win together. We create mutual success and build trusting, lasting relationships.
We are never content with "that's how it's always been done." We question to understand, learn, continuously improve, and innovate.
We ambitiously turn challenges into successes through perseverance, resilience, and a will to win.
Congratulations to Jimmy Eubanks, Inventory Manager for DIS-TRAN Steel. Jimmy has been with DIS-TRAN Steel and Crest Industries for more than two decades! With his 20 years of experience, without a doubt, he is a huge asset to Crest’s team. Jimmy has many connections and has purchased steel in just about every market. However, it is Jimmy’s ability to lead through influence and live out our Crest Values that help enable DIS-TRAN Steel to succeed on an unlimited scale. Jimmy’s competitive. He’s determined and rises to every challenge. His teammates say it best, “Jimmy is Jimmy and that’s why we all like Jimmy.” Crest is thankful to have Jimmy as a member of its Crest family.
Crest is pleased to announce we have TWO Culture Champions for the month of March, Keith Henry and David Harrington from the Proposal Team at DIS-TRAN Packaged Substations. These two created a brand-new procedure within the proposal development process and its impact is ringing loud and clear. Congratulations to Keith and David!
Robert is a great example of our values in action! As St. Jude’s Heroes, he and his son Landon raise funds for the children’s cancer research center and the families receiving treatment there in honor of his late wife, Monica, who passed away from cancer. Robert champions the phrase “rise to the challenge,” and he focuses on building lasting relationships and supporting his team to make sure we can all win together both in the community and across the Crest Family.
Congratulations to Shannon Dauzat, Programmer/Analyst at DIS-TRAN Packaged Substations. Shannon was nominated by his supervisor for always bringing a can-do mentality to the team and rising to the challenges that come from handling Epicor. Shannon always keeps a good attitude and doesn’t shy away from the issues or struggles he encounters – rather, Shannon charges the storm. His teammates say that if it wasn’t for Shannon, the team would struggle to get everything done through the help of consultants – limiting DIS-TRAN Packaged Substations’ agility to quickly serve its customers and teams.
Congratulations to Tyler Martin, Estimating Manager at Optimal. Tyler’s teammates nominated him for going above and beyond - even when no one is looking. They say, “he's there for us during or after hours, and he challenges us to see how we can better ourselves, the estimating department, Optimal & Crest as a whole. " Tyler has grown the department into what it is today, and he’s a great example of living Crest's values.
Congratulations to Sherri Roy. Sherri is the Proposal Assistant at Beta and was nominated by her teammates to be inducted into Crest's Culture Corps for the month of April. Sherri is in a key position at Beta supporting the busy Beta proposals team and maintaining the filing, organization, contract creation, and administrative duties for the entire department. In line with both Crest and Beta’s values, Sherri does it all with a positive and team-player attitude. She pursues that which challenges her and makes sure the entire team can win together and succeed on an unlimited scale.
Congratulations to Pat Abernathy, Counter Sales Manager at Mid-State. Pat is someone who challenges you to do better every day and will be there for you anytime you need him. Pat was nominated by his teammates who spoke about his talents and compassion as a coworker, supervisor, father, and friend. They say that Pat is one of the best human beings that they know, and many of his teammates would not be who they are today without the help and support from Pat.
