Ready to meet another Bayer Built team member? We’ve only scratched the surface on the team of people that make up our Bayer Built family. It takes many individuals working on several teams to get every order off the line and onto our trucks every day…but it all starts when Customer Service picks up the phone. This week we’re introducing you to our Customer Service Team Leader; Gordie Landwehr. Here’s what Gordie had to say…
Hi Gordie! How long have you worked at Bayer Built?
Hi! I’ve been with Bayer Built for 18 years.
What is your greatest responsibility in your daily activities at Bayer Built?
Ensuring our customers receive the full value of the product and services they’ve paid for.
Whom do you laugh with most often at Bayer Built?
Our Customer Service Team.
What is your favorite memory while working at Bayer Built?
I think when my journey is done and I look back, one thing that will stand out is the courage our ownership had investing in a major expansion during a recession and the positive impact of that for our customers and employees.
When the weekend arrives, what do you most look forward to doing in the summer and/or winter?
Camping, hunting, fishing and time with family.
If you could travel anywhere in the world for free, where would it be and why?
I’d take a train trip to Seattle, then board a cruise ship to Alaska, then drive an RV through Alaska’s interior, then fly back home! (wow!) I’ve always wanted to go to Alaska.
If you won the lottery, what would be the first purchase you would make over $ 10,000?
I’d build a new home.
If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life, what would it be?
The Hunt for Red October.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it consist of?
BBQ Chicken off the grill, cut-up fried potatoes, green beans, bread, butter and a cold beer!
What was the last live concert you attended?
My granddaughter’s pre-school concert!
When you were about ten years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Do you have any advice for future Bayer Built employees?
Focus on what you can control and work to be the best at what you do. When in doubt, put yourself in your customer’s shoes and you’ll make good decisions; and you’ll do well here!
