Sharon celebrated 25 years with Hager in February of 2016, which is quite an accomplishment! Sharon started with Hager Co. in February of 1991 and currently holds the position of Assistant Customer Service Manager.
In Sharon’s own words:
Childhood ambition: Loved music, but chose to be an Administrative Assistant like my mom.
First job: Steak N Shake.
What led you to the hardware industry: I was looking for an Administrative Assistant job and Hager had an opening. I was hired by Steve Tenholder to work as an Administrative Assistant for the Marketing Department. I was then asked to work for members of the Hager family a few years later. At that time, Warren Hager was responsible for the Roton Continuous Hinge product line. When he was out of the office, I used to take phone calls and started asking questions about the product. I also worked for Susie Wiegand who would receive phone calls from certain customers on Architectural and Residential products.
Proudest professional moment: When I succeeded in my job at hand and was promoted for my efforts.
Biggest challenge: Learning locks and masterkeying.
Mentor/Hero: My Grandma.
Best advice you ever received: That life is a challenge and you should never stop trying to be a better .person.
Best advice you never received: If you make a mistake, own it and move on. Don’t blame others.
Guilty pleasure: Chocolate.
We are so glad Sharon is on the Hager team, leading with her knowledge and 100% dedication. Thanks for your hard work and fortitude Sharon!
