Matt Blakeley – September 2010
Pavestone is very pleased to announce Matt Blakeley as the September Sales Rep of the Month. Below is an excerpt from an email that was received from Brian Webber, the Operations Assistant Store Manager at Home Depot store # 707, that demonstrates the level of dedication and effort put forth by Matt that has earned him this recognition.
“I wanted to take a minute and ask for your assistance in specifically recognizing your employee Matt Blakely. Over the last 6 months, Matt has given me and Team Depot and incredible amount of assistance in vision, design and labor. Without his assistance this project would not have been possible. He has been with us since day one and leant his expertise in doing the site walk. He took a rough idea that I had in my head and was able to take my loose collection of thoughts and sketches and put them to an actual engineered design. He spent many hours measuring, computing as well as making calls to the city and planners to get engineering designs for the site. He was able to secure product and the assistance of your associates. This really gave the project a professional finish and has truly impressed everybody that has gone into the memorial garden.
Matt has truly made a difference not only to a grieving family but to a whole community. Murfreesboro and the Blackman Community have been grieving for the last year from the unfortunate lose of one of their own. Russell Hercules, Jr. passed October 1, 2009 during an insurgent attack while he was on patrol in Afghanistan. He was a member of the Pathfinder Company 4th BN of the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell. The efforts put forth over last few months by Matt and Pavestone have done unimaginable amounts of healing for both a grieving family and a community as a whole.
Matt has far surpassed any level of dedication that I would expect in any vendor representative. I know he has also been doing this with a heavy heart dealing with the recent loss of his own brother while on active duty. Being faced with this and being able to give what he has, shows us that we have not only a great partnership but a true friendship.”
