Meet Joel Stravers!
Joel is the Maintenance and Facilities manager here at Deco! He was born in Des Moines, IA and graduated from Southeast Pol High School. He is a recent addition to the DECO team, joining us about 18 months ago, and we are glad to have him!
- Why did you join DECO?
- “I saw the opportunity to use my talents to help the company and the maintenance team grow.”
- What do you enjoy most about what you do?
- “I get the opportunity to work with fantastic people and solving some difficult problems in a collaborative way.”
- Who has been the most helpful in your beginning at DECO? How have they been helpful?
- “Barb Breza and Randy Tangen come to mind first. Randy brings years of experience and expertise from his 40+ years at DECO, which has been invaluable as I settle into this role, and Barb has provided so many opportunities to meet the team here and I have never had a bad interaction with her.”
- 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.”
- What is a fun fact about you?
- “I’m a pretty boring guy, so I guess a fun fact about myself is that I have a dog named Jeff.”
