CentiMark congratulates Rick Stahlman, Warehouse Manager, Richmond, VA, on his NRCA MVP Finalist award on March 5, 2021. He has been with CeniMark for 32 years. Rick is a dedicated, committed, and professional Warehouse Manager who meets and exceeds the needs of the Richmond, VA roofing crews and their projects. Rick also assists other Warehouse Managers with training and assistance, whenever it is needed. He makes all his co-workers look better with his solutions to problems, because he NEVER takes any of the credit.
Rick has been described as a problem solver ‘who solves problems created by others’ and is ‘The Rock’ of the Richmond, VA office. His wisdom, knowledge and experience in roofing, his connections with vendors and his willingness to share information are assets and teaching tools for his co-workers and others throughout CentiMark.
Going above and beyond for Rick starts early, as he is typically the first person in the office at 5:30 a.m. and he stays until the job is done. His exemplary service to his co-workers and CentiMark customers extends to nights and weekends. ‘Just doing my job’ is what Rick would say if you asked him why he works so hard. He wants the CentiMark crews to have everything they need to get their jobs done safely, efficiently, and timely.
Rick demonstrates his leadership by modeling behavior - always being prepared, going the extra mile, making sure the orders for materials are done correctly and finishing every project. If a foreman or crew member calls for materials that they need for a job, Rick will do everything in his power to get the materials to them. It doesn’t matter if the job is close to the office or hundreds of miles away. Rick makes sure the roofing crews get the materials that they need, whenever and wherever they need it.
Rick is a teacher and CentiMark relies on him to train new Warehouse Managers throughout the company. Another challenging part of his job is to schedule the crane use for the Richmond, VA office. The constant communication with crane operators, field supervisors and foreman is a challenge and can be stressful. But Rick has that unique ability and patience to coordinate it all and make everything work.
Congratulations Rick. We are so proud of you at CentiMark!
