Chamberlin Superintendent Miguel Lopez was honored with Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress’ Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award in the Outstanding On-the-Job Performance category. This program celebrates workers across the United States who are outstanding employees within their companies and recognizes them for their exceptional achievements and contributions to the roofing industry. Miguel was one of only eight recipients nationwide in 2019.
Nominees for this category demonstrate a strong work ethic, display leadership skills, contribute creative ideas for problem solving, have an excellent safety record and demonstrate support and mentoring for co-workers. These employees go above and beyond their specific job responsibilities.
Miguel upholds Chamberlin’s core values of Safety, Quality and Teamwork on every job he undertakes and truly cares about a job done right. His planning, attention to detail, communication and forethought are invaluable assets to his crew, to the company and to Chamberlin’s clients. Combining his vast technical knowledge of commercial roofing systems and his ability to think on his feet, Miguel approaches any challenge with innovative problem solving. He also holds safety as a primary focus on every project. Miguel readily tells potential employees why they should join the Chamberlin team, emphasizing Chamberlin’s values. He knows building crews of quality people with honesty and integrity will support his continued success and Chamberlin’s.
Miguel believes that empowering each member of the team with the skills and knowledge they need to get the job done makes for safe and productive projects. He volunteered to instruct a course for Chamberlin University, a program developed to train Chamberlin’s workforce, and was very successful in the position.
Chamberlin Vice President of Roofing & Sheet Metal Operations Bill Lawson says of Miguel, “I’ve enjoyed working with Miguel for the last 23 years and have a great deal of respect for him. I admire his loyalty and dedication to Chamberlin. Miguel has many great attributes and qualities that make him an MVP for Chamberlin, but one of his greatest strengths is his ability to teach and mentor others.
