Many of you have been introduced to Josiah, our Office Administrator/Manager, during his 1 year with us. Unfortunately for us, Josiah is going to renew his full-time class load at college again, so he is no longer working for us. In his place will be Shawn Stickel.
Shawn's role will be similar to Josiah's, but expanded, and you may have an opportunity to meet him over the phone when you call our office because he will be the friendly voice that greets you. Homestead has grown too much for our my cell phone to be the company phone number, so when you dial our office number, 719-433-6991, that will actually ring in our office at 4390 N. Academy Blvd, and Shawn will take your call and help you and direct your call to your favorite project manager.
Answering the phones is not all Shawn will be tasked to do, however. He will have the dubious responsibility of keeping track of all of us and our jobs and making sure that we all stay on track and continue to provide each of you and our future customers with great service.
Shawn has a depth of experience that will make him immediately valuable to our customers and to Homestead Roofing. He spent 21 years working at Current, Inc, beginning there right out of high school as a material handler and he worked his way up to being a manager in the purchasing department. After his time at Current, Shawn worked for 4 years at Walter Drake before he was asked to become the Office Manager and Pastoral Assistant for Springs Reformed Church downtown, and then he added their sister church, Tri-Lakes Reformed Church, as well as the Treasurer for his denomination’s presbytery, and serving on their denomination’s Synod Board of Trustees.
So, Shawn brings a lot of project and personnel management experience to Homestead Roofing. It's a bummer to see Josiah heading a different direction, but we believe that God has provided an excellent replacement in Shawn. In addition to all the great qualities Shawn brings, our office staff will remain All-In-The-Family. Shawn's also my brother-in-law!
