What’s Ahead

By Evan Coulter

I’m not really into making New Year’s resolutions. Goals, sure. But resolutions? Not really my thing.

One of my goals for UCEC in 2016 is to improve both our customer and employee experience. We’ll achieve this goal by several initiatives, some of them centered around fun and uplifting events.

Speaking of “uplifting,” this is what Terry Engledow faced when he returned from vacation last week:

You might have seen this picture on Twitter (@UCECBuilt). Terry was definitely surprised! (That’s 1,500 balloons, in case you’re wondering.)

I’m inspired by our great relationships with customers. Other companies inspire me as well, such as Moosejaw. They are a Minnesota-based discount adventure gear supplier with a sense of humor. I really like their corporate communications. Although we are in different industries, I can see similarities between MooseJaw and UCEC.

We like to have personality in UCEC’s blog, Twitter feed and in-person events. Instead of a faceless panel shop, our customers and readers can learn more about the great people who make up UCEC’s team. In our blog, you can hear from various personalities. We can’t sell you a sleeping bag, but you can read about camping in national parks, hiking through Peru or the picturesque Irish landscape. We hope that through our written communications, you can get a glimpse of who we are in 2016.

Evan is Vice President of Business Operations.
