Family First

We added another LIL to our team a couple months ago! She’s new to the industry, but picked up on it like she’s been here for years! She introduces herself in today’s spotlight.

Meet Erica Willis!

Hello everyone! My name is Erica. I’m a native to New Richmond, Ohio. I married my husband Brad 20 years ago this October. Together we have four lovely children: Madalyn, Logan, Landen, and Macie. We also love our family dog named Brooks.

My family is my greatest motivation. They are my world and I would do anything to give them the best life I possibly can. I pride myself on working hard and setting a great example for my children. I’m blessed to work at a company that supports these aspirations. 

I really enjoy the atmosphere at PGT. Our team is great at what they do, but everyone also knows how to (and isn’t afraid to) have fun together. They’ve all been very supportive of me since day one and have offered up many words of encouragement as I navigate logistics for the first time. I am thankful that I’m able to refer to my coworkers as friends. Everyone has been so welcoming and made me feel truly at home.

If someone every asked me about joining our PGT team, I would advise them that they have to be willing to work hard. The job isn’t always easy, but the payoff is definitely worth it. You never have the same day twice and you never know what challenge you’re going to run into- and that keeps things interesting! Jumping head first into a new company in an unfamiliar industry can be difficult, but I’ve grown professionally and personally every single time I come into the office. Who doesn’t want to grow and become better?

One of my favorite things to do outside of work is being creative. I love helping my daughter with her paintings, cooking unique meals, and starting a new home renovation. Creative outlets allow me to relax. 

What’s great about PGT- they give me the ability to use those creative outlets in the office as well! They allow me the opportunity to brainstorm and come up with new ideas, even as the new girl on the block!
