Chip Goode - Operations Manager
Chip’s experience in the construction industry started when he was 22, working for a company in Victoria, Texas, breaking metal. He was a recent graduate from Texas A&M with an agricultural degree. He then moved into the interior finish business and became a Superintendent. While living in Dallas, he was hired on at Chamberlin as a Project Coordinator. Once he was promoted to Project Manager, he transferred to the San Antonio office in the Waterproofing & Caulking department. In 2014, he was promoted to Senior Project Manager. Chip and his wife, Sherri, have made their way back to Dallas, where Chip is now the Operations Manager for Waterproofing & Caulking. A notable project for Chip is Frost Bank in the lovely Westover Hills in San Antonio. A project that would typically take two years to complete was fast-tracked for a one-year completion. Chip rose to the challenge and managed the project to meet the tight deadline, crediting great teamwork for the outcome.
A Day in the Life:
On any given day, you can find Chip on jobsites making sure the projects are running smoothly, interacting with clients, supporting the office staff, managing any obstacles that might arise and ordering materials.
“Great customer service is vital because without it, we do not have work,” says Chip. Safety is also in the forefront for Chip, because it is imperative that Chamberlin crew members provide for their families and get home safely every day. Doing it right the first time, every time is also crucial. Chip understands it doesn’t do the client or Chamberlin any good if we have to return to a project for repairs, when the job should have been done right the first time. Chip’s philosophy on teamwork is that it takes more than one person to run a project, starting from estimating through operations and into the field. Everyone is involved, and everyone plays a key role.
Outside the Office:
Outside the office, you can find Chip hunting, fishing, attending sporting clay events and spending quality time with his wife, Sherri.
