GSC & Dacier Employee of the Month
Herman was originally part of the construction crew that completed a whole-house renovation at GSC over a three-year period ending in 2015. When that project was over, he filled an opening in GSC's maintenance department and has since been promoted to Director of Plant Operations.
His knowledge of how to maintain and repair things grew out of a career in the Public Works Department of Hollywood, Florida, from which he retired in his 40s.
Herman was nominated for this award by a co-worker who is grateful for his promptness and efficiency and the happy spirit he shows while meeting a multitude of needs every day.
Herman enjoys working, but he enjoys working at GSC even more because of his personal contact with residents. Busy as he always is, he still makes time for a friendly chat and takes an interest in each person he serves.close
