Each month, we feature one of our team members on our blog, and this month, we are giving our Employee Spotlight a twist! We are providing a special “Welcome to the Team” spotlight for our VP of Project Delivery, Michelle Evans! Michelle joined the Acorn team in 2020, and she comes to us with over a decade of experience in project management in relation to signage.
Michelle’s favorite aspect of her position is goal setting. She loves to set the bar high in a variety of capacities and works diligently with her team to achieve them! When it comes to goal setting, she especially loves to focus on customer service, technical capabilities and personal and professional growth.
When asked about why she loves working for Acorn in particular, she says, “The way our culture here enables me to operate as a leader. Our team operates with a lot of trust. So, my role is to give people the tools and education they need to perform their jobs – not to micromanage. I am surrounded by intelligent and dedicated people that strive to do right by the customer, lift each other up, and work together to find solutions when problems arise. This makes my job very rewarding.”
Michelle has moved around a lot in her life, including spending time in Spotsylvania, Richmond, Madison County in the mountains and Pittsburgh as a child and teen, but moved back to the Richmond area when she was around 15. A fun fact about Michelle is that she loves design! She dabbles in painting, photography, tie-dying, interior design and everything in between. Any creative venture that catches Michelle’s attention, she explores!
We are so happy to welcome Michelle to the team, and are so excited to see how she will help our team grow at Acorn. Our employees are the heart of who we are, and we are thankful for them every day. Check out our full team at: https://acornsign.com/about/.
