He's here for the long haul
At PGT we want our associates to be around for the long haul. The only way that happens is through proven success and growth opportunities. We definitely have both of those, in large part due to today’s Staff Spotlight. He’s been with PGT since day one, so it’s only fitting that we let him introduce himself!
My name is Jake Garn and I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I graduated from the University of Cincinnati (Go Bearcats!) with a bachelor’s degree in Communication. I have been in the transportation industry for the last three years and I honestly enjoy all aspects of the business.
My wife and I have two boys, ages 6 and 2, and we enjoy spending time together. One of our favorite pastimes is going to Cincinnati Reds games. There is nothing I love more than my family, so if I have the opportunity to spend quality time with them, I jump at it every time.
I pride myself on hard work and helping others achieve their goals. I am motivated by my family to give them a better life than I had. One of the most important professional goals I have is to make my teammates around me more successful. If our team is successful, I am successful.
I enjoy the atmosphere and the people at PGT amongst many other things. We are a tight knit group of professionals who are willing to do whatever it takes to service our customers and win as a team.
If I were to give advice to someone thinking about joining the PGT team, I would tell them to be prepared to work hard, but it will all pay off. PGT will bring out the best in every individual and inspire you to be this best version of yourself daily.
Don’t just count your blessings, be the blessing other people count on!
