Employee Spotlight: Darrin Taylor
Position: Office Administrator
Darrin has been part of our team for several years now. He has blended in, complimented and augmented our team in a tremendous way. We are very grateful to have him as part of the Lambert Sheet Metal family.
Darrin graduated from Big Walnut High School in Sunbury, Ohio with a general studies course load yet his favorite subject has always been math. This alone indicates how special he is. We all appreciate number skills but Darrin actually enjoys it. This is a terrific match for us since he pays bills, creates invoices among many other accounting related tasks along with handling support to our estimating, shipping and sales staff. He has an “Eagle Eye” to ensure that all accounting items check and balance. We are confident Darrin keeps things on track and will continue to do a terrific job.
Darrin enjoys sports both as a spectator as well as a participant. In school he was adept at his position on the Football team as a linebacker but also really enjoys watching ice hockey and baseball. He even collects baseball cards as a hobby. He also enjoys following the Buckeye football program as The Ohio State University is his alma-mater. The Ohio State University is where Darrin earned his bachelor degree in business and finance studies in the prestigious Fisher College of Business program. Darrin is also a Notary Public which he uses often on behalf of Lambert Sheet Metal.
When asked about, “what was your ah-ha moment in College,” he responded by saying, “You have to really work hard for what you want to get whether it is good grades or to achieve something in life.” He definitely has and does work hard and achieved so much in a short time, especially at such a young age.
When Darrin first started with our company, he had the perception that he might get bored waiting for someone to, “just walk in the door.” Now, several years later he feels he is part of a team which helps each other achieve success for our customers and for our company. It is this camaraderie that excites Darrin to come to work each day knowing he is being relied upon by the rest of his team. He says, “it makes work exciting and interesting.”
Darrin enjoys building relationships with our customers and vendors. Some are near our Columbus facility and others are far-flung all around the United States and even in other countries.
Darrin also really enjoys talking to our past, now retired employees. Some come over for coffee on a weekly basis, some just occasionally and the rest are seen at our annual Lambert Sheet Metal Christmas party. He loves hearing the stories of fifty years of hard work and also a few pranks thrown in for good measure.
Darrin is still dating his high school sweetheart and enjoys walking on the beach, picking seashells and watching sunsets with his girlfriend.
Being an alumnus of The Ohio State University, he also relishes the inter-office rivalry with some co-workers who are arch rivals of his beloved Buckeyes. Fortunately for Darrin his desk faces the “buckeye wall of fame” so if he gets too much “blue” banter thrown his way he simply looks up and smiles. The owner of the business is also a big buckeye fan and our President received her Master’s degree at The Ohio State University so Darrin is in good company.
We look forward to many, many years of Darrin’s tremendous contributions to the Lambert Sheet Metal family. So, whether you are talking to Darrin about a credit application, an invoice or about a job bid rest assured he is not only very qualified but most importantly he cares and is on your side.
