What project are you most proud of working on at Sielo, why?

The project that was the most rewarding was the expansion of our building. We had the chance to keep the business running while expanding our building. There had to be cooperation between all groups through the 3 phases of the move. Watching how this team worked through that transition, I knew we had the right team moving forward.

Why are you passionate about Sielo?

I get the opportunity to work with a professional group of employees that are working together to make Sielo successful. We work together to come up with solutions to meet every customers needs.
