As a Female Production Manager, Leonor saw an opportunity to Flourish in the Building Industry at The Cleary Company Remodel Design Build in Columbus Ohio.
Team Cleary recruits their first female Production Manager, Leonor Carrasco! Leo was hired in the spring of 2019 with over 15 years of experience in the commercial construction industry. We asked her to share her background and experiences working with our Team. Do you see a bit of yourself in her answers? Are you ready to work for the best remodeling company in central Ohio?
What type of education did you acquire to help build the skills you use today?
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from University de La Salle in Mexico with an additional certification in Project Management.
Why did you want to work for The Cleary Company?
I loved hearing how clients talk about The Cleary Company and I thought that was a reflection of the people working for The Cleary Company. It seemed a perfect environment for me to grow as an individual. As a female in this industry, it’s not always easy to find a spot where I can actually bloom and be able to share my knowledge. This company opened its doors and gave me this opportunity.
How has The Cleary Company supported your growth, both personally and professionally?
They have helped me grow by challenging me beyond my comfort zone. I like to be challenged and I know there’s always room for improvement. We have all kinds of projects with different difficulties. We have timelines, budgets, trade partners to work with and daily challenges in many different shapes. So, every day is a new and different, exciting challenge.
We are part of the Remodelers Advantage Production Roundtables, a national association for remodelers. The Roundtable is a way we share our experiences, business models, knowledge and ways we tackle design, with other remodelers. This is a very fulfilling experience that I get to be part of, by sharing and learning from others.
What skills have you learned since joining The Cleary Company?
The Cleary Company has shown me how to improve the lives of others. This is our core belief and we do it every day by designing, building, managing projects and trade partners, and getting homes remodeled and upgraded. It improves my life every day by what we do.
Just for Fun!
What do you believe is the hidden gem to working for The Cleary Company?
There is support here at The Cleary Company and we are a team. There is a path for each one of us. We are a family and spend many hours together. We work together to improve someone else’s life.
What do you enjoy the most about working for The Cleary Company?
I enjoy being able to see when there’s nothing and then how the space completely transforms, becoming a different experience for the clients. It’s so fulfilling to completely change a space into something new.
What is your funniest moment while working for The Cleary Company?
There is always a funny story to share every week! One example is that everyone knows I love groundhogs. The day after Groundhog’s Day, mysteriously, a cake from “Phil” showed up in the refrigerator at work. Also, George and I love to scare people around the office. We have had a lot of fun doing it and our Team members love it too!
Leonor relocated to Ohio from the Bahamas to work with our central Ohio remodeling Team. She had been working for a big resort when she reached to us through LinkedIn and got a call from Aaron Enfinger, CR, Chief Operations Officer for scheduling an interview. We’re thrilled she just took the chance and moved here!
