Würth Revcar Fasteners

How long have you worked for Würth?

28 Years

What do you like most about your job?

I love the time that I get to spend interacting with our suppliers and with the other Wurth employees. I am a believer that relationships still matter so these interactions are extremely important to me. Oh, and I absolutely love the negotiating part of my job. I get to work with our vendors to come up with agreements that are beneficial for both companies. Win/win is the key to any long-term partnership and I find that part of my job very satisfying.

What do you like to do when you're not working?

I like to work around the house and spend time with my wife and two sons. We enjoy watching movies together on the weekends. I also enjoy fishing and hunting in the great Commonwealth of Virginia.

What are your favorite sports teams?

I am a huge Los Angeles Dodgers fan and I root for the University of Virginia in all college sports. To be politically correct, I have to say that I am a fan of the Washington Football Team!

What is a typical day like for you?

I have direct responsibility for the Quotations group so most days revolve around dealing with the different quote packages that we are working on. This part of my job affords me the opportunity to interact with many different people including Outside Sales, Branch Management, and our suppliers. I also seem to have an awful lot of conference calls these days… that seems to have become the norm in today’s world.

What's a fun fact about you?

I walk around the office each morning and tell everyone good morning before I begin my workday.
