Hunter Heroes

HP Heroes notagSome may call us self-serving. We like to think of it as "pride in a job well done". Hunter Panels appreciates our employees and we like to call them out with an extra bit of praise when they go above and beyond the call of duty. We designate these folks – our Hunter Heroes.

Nicole Boynton

Nicole B HeroOn July, 5th, when Hunter Panels was closed but the rest of CCM open, Nichole Boynton went above and beyond for Hunter Panels. While at home she turned on her laptop, working throughout the day addressing customer issues and ensuring everything went smoothly for them.

This is a prime example of a Hunter employee doing "Whatever it Takes", even on her day off, to ensure the best internal and external customer experience. This is what sets us apart from our competition.

Thank you for all you do, Nichole!

Dianna Lafontaine

lafontaine diannaI wanted to nominate Dianna Lafontaine as the Hunter Hero. I have been working with Dianna over the last few years but more closely this past year when I was hired to work for Empire Sales Group. Not only is she an asset to Hunter Panels, she is a major asset to our company as well! She has been nothing short of AMAZING , always friendly and wonderful at her job. Every time I think to myself, she can't get any better at what she does, she goes and surprises me. If we are ever in a pinch (which have been quite a few times), she is willing to step in and make sure we are taken care of. Dianna goes ABOVE AND BEYOND our expectations. I always look forward to hearing from her and her friendly/positive attitude! There have been a few times where I needed help submitting quote requests because I was still learning the process and Dianna stepped in, sent me a long email with detailed information and a bunch of pointers to make things easier on me, which I greatly appreciated. It's been a year since she this email with valuable information and I continue to reference it to this day.

Al Carr

carr alEd, I would like to share with you one of the reasons I enjoy and continue to work with Hunter Panels. Simply put, Al Carr.

He consistently goes above and beyond with my tapered design requests, answers all of my annoying questions and turns around my designs in a very timely and professional manner. He is a very strong asset to your team and assures my continued support of Hunter Panels. Please be sure to thank him for me.

Rob DeHaan

Rob DehaanI would like to call special attention to Rob DeHaan in the tapered department. I have learned a tremendous amount from him the two times he has flown into my territory (last minute) and helped bail my contractor as well as myself out of a few tapered nightmares. I have not met anyone that is as knowledgeable as he is about tapered design. He not only has the expertise but also the ability to bridge the gap with contractors and myself in understand how to design better water flow off a roof. He (for sure) is a HERO!

Kyle Ryerson

Kyle Ryerson smThank you for your "Whatever it Takes" spirit in being the team lead on the CRM implementation, on top of all of your other daily job responsibilities! We realize that this is a HUGE undertaking, 50% of your time somedays and would not be where we are today in the process without your direction and passion. You are a wonderful example of the "Whatever it Takes" spirit this company was founded on. Cheers!

Rob DeHaan

Rob DehaanI am writing you to tell you how pleased we are to be working with Rob DeHaan.  He always does his best to provide fast turnaround on quote requests.  He often gives unsolicited options that he knows will be a benefit to our contractors.  A little while back we had a job where a new estimator made a mistake and came up short because he incorrectly calculated the foam adhesive. I called Rob and he suggested the extended panels and that suggestion may have saved this guy's job.  A couple times I send him a quote request and shortly after getting his out of office message I would get my quote, incredible! As you are aware we have numerous options as to what vendors we can use to provide quotes which I have done this in the past, Rob's ability to provide cost effective options and responsiveness is unmatched. I look forward to continue our great working relationship into the future.

Stacie Gagne

Stacie GagneStacie Gagne had some big shoes to fill when Tyler Kuhn moved to a different position at Hunter Panels. Stacy has always been there when we needed her. She exemplifies the motto, "Whatever it takes". Great follow up with customers and does an excellent job with distribution. Never a complaint. She finds products when not available and solves the problem. A great team player working with Nicole, Rick, Ed and our regional Dan Flickinger to make sure we are up to speed with pricing and information.
I love working with her she is one of the best!

Selena Ellsmore

Selena ElsmoreCongratulations Selena - A Real Team Player!

Selena completely bailed the tapered department out in our transition when Dianna was out on medical leave. She was a quick study of CRM and with minimal training was logging in projects for us in 2 days. She accomplished this all while continuing her daily activities. A huge help and another example of the "Whatever it takes attitude!" Thank You!

Kim Crepeau

Kim Crepeau Hunter Hero"They said it couldn't be done. There is no CG facer, no HD coverboard, weeks out on 2.5". Steal, beg and borrow. Some material in one plant, some in another. Can they take 4x4? Can they take 25 psi? Couldn't be done but had to be. Delivered today.

I nominate Hunter Hero Kim Crepeau. Miracles happen. Never lose faith."
