We are excited to highlight Walida Faruq as our inaugural “Employee Spotlight” for July 2019. As a Project Manager in our Richmond office for over 6 years, Walida brings years of experience handling complex projects. We’re glad she’s here to navigate–Walida enjoys the challenge in each project and seeing the end result after all the signage is installed.
Walida is a member of the Class of 2018 ISA Elite, a highly sought-after program to broaden understanding of the signage industry. The program provides a wide range of knowledge of the different types of sign companies and processes, and it helps to connect you to industry relationships and friendships that last throughout your career. Walida raves, “The ISA Sign Expo is amazing and seeing all of the vendors and different machines that are out there is out of this world. It’s a great program and I highly suggest anyone who is interested apply if you fit the criteria needed to apply.”
We are thankful to have Walida as a part of our team. She’s a critical component to what she loves about working at Acorn — “The atmosphere is great, the people are great, the fun team events are awesome and I love working with everyone here at Acorn. There is room to grow and you really learn a lot about yourself not only in the work environment but as a person. It’s a great place to work and I enjoy coming to Acorn every day!”
A fun fact about Walida–she has never eaten a Big Mac from McDonald’s!
Each month here at Acorn, we’ll be featuring one of our team members. Our team members are the heart of who we are as a company, and we are thankful for them every day. Check out our full team at: https://acornsign.com/about/.
