Eleven years ago, I was professional and personally blessed to hire Chris full-time at Custom Flag Company. Today we celebrate his work anniversary. Chris started been a member of the CFC team since working summer breaks during high school and college.
Chris and Custom Flag Company have grown so much in 11 years. There are very few memories of Custom Flag Company that don’t include Chris. He has made such an impact. He has been here through it all, starting the summer of 2001, before 9/11. He was here when we were operating the company out of my basement. He saw the downfall effects of the industry during the Great Recession, firsthand. His predecessor, Phil, taught him how to schedule and manage a service team. Chris took that information and made it his own. He has created a professional, efficient, dependable, and safe service department. He is respected within the flag industry and is frequently quizzed from flag companies outside of Colorado to troubleshoot service/flagpole issues. He has challenged me on important issues, which has made Custom Flag Company a leader in the flag industry and a fun place to work.
Personally, it has been a pleasure to see Chris grow from a young, high school football player to the man he is today. He is a great husband, awesome dad, and a leader in the community.
11 years. Did the past 11 years fly by? Did the past 11 years crawl?
