We’re the [Second] Best Place to Work in Southwest Virginia


I’m proud to announce that we were just named the second best place to work in Southwest Virginia by the Blue Ridge Business Journal. We work really hard to build an incredible place to work here and it’s an honor to get such recognition.
We try to only post information on this blog that is relevant to our customers, and maybe this is a stretch, but I truly believe that the quality of service we deliver is a direct result of the quality of people that we employ—so there you have it. Plus, I’m damn proud of the award!
I’d also like to give a special shout out to Marisa (pictured below), our HR Coordinator, for helping us to get this recognition—and of course, for her dedication to helping create an incredible place to work.
