Bert Hagy – Branch Manager, Knoxville
Team member since:  December 1995

“I have been a part of the Piedmont family for almost 20 years.  I am very proud to be part of this organization. It is a privilege to have been here this long and get up each day and be excited about what we do! I love our company, our industry, and the people I am blessed to work with each day. I am excited about the direction of our company and look forward to many more years on the team and in the Piedmont family!”

 

Marty Eakins – Branch Manager, Raleigh
Team member since:  August 2007

“I’ve been with Piedmont for eight years now and my only regret is that I didn’t start my career at Piedmont Plastics!  From a senior management team that constantly strives to be the best in class and really lives their value statement to the quality of people they hire, Piedmont is head and shoulders above the rest.  If you are looking for a company that is in business to do business, is well respected by their customers, vendors, and even their competition, then Piedmont Plastics is the place to be.”

 

Renee Eaton – Inside Sales Manager, La Mirada

Team member since:  June 1990

“I have been an employee of the Piedmont Plastics team for 25 years as an Inside Sales Representative. The greatest thing I can say about the Piedmont team is simply the word "Family".  Piedmont Plastics treats their employees with respect and kindness.  As an employee you are given every tool you could ask for or need to be successful.  Piedmont Plastics truly lives and breathes their core values.  It is a pleasure to work for a company that has such high values.”

 

Steve Wade - Administrative Operations Manager, Accounting

Team member since:  June 1993

“As excited as I was to join Piedmont more than 20 years ago, I am still that excited today. Piedmont Plastics is a great company, one that has been profitable in not only the good years, but also in bad economic times, due mainly to excellent and caring management, dedicated, customer service oriented employees, a loyal and diverse customer base, and the best suppliers in the industry.  It's a family here.  That's just a slogan at many companies, but that's truly a part of our culture here.  We care for each other deeply, from the top to the bottom.  Piedmont offers competitive pay, a bonus program, and has a great benefit package.  And, as a growing company, there are a multitude of opportunities for advancement after you join the team.”

 

Thomas Rathburn – Warehouse Manager, Greenville

Team member since:  September 1998

“I have had numerous jobs through the years, and have worked for the local competitor off and on a few times, but I have never found a place that felt like home.  In late 1998, I applied with Piedmont, and after three interviews, and eventually a job offer, I decided that I wanted to try working for Piedmont.  Before then, I hadn't stayed anywhere longer than about three years, but that all changed when I came here, something was different.  There was a special family feel and a genuine concern for the employees, and it was obvious to me that Piedmont cares about retaining quality employees.  Now, almost 17 years later, I'm still here, and I still wake up each morning looking forward to coming to my job at Piedmont.  I assure you that no one is more amazed by that than me, and I look forward to many more years here with my family!”

 

Walter Siniscalchi – District Manager, Region 14: Albany, Baltimore/Washington, Philadelphia

Team member since:  July 2009

“I was always intrigued by the comments I was hearing from our suppliers about Piedmont Plastics.  I had over 25 years in this business.  My first interview was with Chip Whitfield and Hank Booth.  They were so cordial and interesting to speak with.  I knew then that if I was ever going to relocate, it would be to join Piedmont Plastics.  I never did move that year, but some 5-6 years later, I called Chip and was again welcomed to meet with them.  This time, there was no doubt that if they were going to offer me a position, I was ready to make that move.  My wife and I are very excited for me to be working for such a great and caring company.  Their values and integrity are wonderful.  The culture for me was very different from my previous experiences.  I cannot say enough how lucky I am to experience this culture in the same industry.  Piedmont by far outshines them all.  I encourage anyone in plastics to reach out to this wonderful company.  After joining Piedmont as a Branch Manager, I was promoted just two years later to District Manager.  This company has plenty of room for advancement for those wanting a career in distribution and/or management.”
