Wes

Senior Superintendent

MY AUSTIN STORY

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY ABOUT WORKING AT AUSTIN? | "Having great team members and a very close bond gives work a family atmosphere that motivates me to give my best. Our team does a great job of keeping the morale up, we strive to prop up our teammates on their worst days."

WHAT DOES EMPLOYEE-OWNERSHIP MEAN TO YOU? | "When I worked for a publicly-traded company (whose overseas board focused on finances instead of people), I noticed that competition and turnover increased, and teamwork decreased. It’s the opposite here at AI. I’m thankful for high end, challenging projects, excellent collaboration, feeling appreciated, and being part of a dedicated work family."

HOW DOES OWNERSHIP IMPACT YOUR WORK? | "I work harder to make the best possible decisions for our brand and our people, because I want to see every job perform well for the good of the team. An ownership culture motivates higher performance, because what benefits the company benefits everyone."
