  • What do you think are the most exciting developments at DECO?
    • “Well obviously I think our automation(robots) are pretty exciting, but also getting to build a maintenance team and a culture of collaboration and growth within the team. Also, the continued opportunity to solve new and challenging problems that keep us on our toes.”

    • “I’m a pretty boring guy, so I guess a fun fact about myself is that I have a dog named Jeff.”
