Quarter 1 – Dylan Neff & Enrique Martinez – “Dylan and Enrique are in the field keeping projects moving forward, communicating with PM and Sales, and Ricky is making great time putting up rack at Crate and Barrel. Their general work ethic and day to day has always been above and beyond, but during a time Covid-19 has presented a lot of concern and changes in work and life, Dylan and Ricky continue to put themselves out there. The face of Storage Solutions and a great example of Team Work. ”
Quarter 2 – Angie Rajski – “No specific date or dollar amount known or needed. Angie continues to go above and beyond every day for her team and this great company. Her workload is enough for two full-time employees, but she still gets it done.”
Quarter 3 – Carl Greeno – “Let me begin by saying if able, I would have checked off every option above for the reason Carl should be recognized. He has ethically approached each day since 2020 unraveled with an attitude of servicing the needs of our “customer”, Storage Solutions. He has been held accountable for maintaining expenses in a time when costs erupted seemingly overnight and at a level beyond anyone’s imagination in a market stretched beyond what anyone could have envisioned. Carl has looked daily into new ways of finding coverage for otherwise uncoverable shipments and, with few exceptions, held our shareholder value at the top of his goal list. Even though all of this increased his email/call volume by multitudes, he has continued to communicate to the teams with real time information. Given the volume of activity and level of effort required for each individual shipment, LHS has had minimal instances of having to advise a team our most dreaded verdict, “can’t cover”. I listed 9/30/20 as the date of occurrence, but that is merely a reflection of all activity that preceded that date (and will surely carry through year end). Yesterday’s date marked the epitome of chaos in our industry…..a market overwhelmed with shipments, sky rocketing rates, driver shortages, imbalanced lanes, carrier understaffing, seasonal retail upswing and end of month/end of quarter. A full estimate of the money value to SSI ESOP is undeterminable; the figure given is only reflective of what he DID NOT pass on to projects in just 3 months. The impact would have been far more reaching without his diligence, both in hard costs on rates and in soft savings unrealized by keeping the projects supplied. He held rates on lanes that were jumping $200 and more in a week’s time, lanes that went from a cost of $2000 to $3800 within a month, honored quotes that were months old when no one else in this industry would or could and when suppliers defaulted on their quotes – and kept job sites for the most part supplied with material. Even in the midst of frustration and anger, bearing the brunt of both suppliers and irritated drivers, project outcries for deliveries, he managed to do his job with unflappable calm. Freight may be the smallest part of SSI’s project pie, but it can be the piece that keeps the rest of the pie from “pooling out”. Carl is a member of every SSI team and an invaluable one.”
“Carl has been an unsung hero during another rapid year of growth at SSI. His effort and work ethic in supporting each team’s needs may go unnoticed, but is always appreciated. Whenever we get in a bind, Carl shows up and is able to work through the issues and deliver product to our customers! If it weren’t for Carl rolling up his sleeves and doing the dirty work, our company wouldn’t be on the verge of another record year! Cheers to him, and all of his hard work!”
Quarter 4 – David Hauck – “This recognition for David is really much more than just a 1 day occurrence. David has been the project manager on my first larger scale project and he has been a fantastic resource the whole way. He is constantly making sure I am up to speed and helping me through the process. He is very selfless and wants the best for our team and has contributed plenty of hours to this project.”
“David continues to be the model for not only Project Managers, but for all roles within the sales cycle. He maintains focus on the customer experience and builds up those around him. His selflessness and team winning attitude is such a strong and important asset within National Accounts.”
