Sexton Receives February Above & Beyond Honors

The Above & Beyond Award acknowledges employees who excel at their jobs and provide outstanding customer service within the Spahn & Rose family of companies. Nominations can be made by fellow employees or by customers.

0324In February, Spahn & Rose honored an Above & Beyond recipient who exemplifies those routes to nomination. Jennifer Sexton, Designer here at Dunn Lumber in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, received her Above & Beyond Award after a customer shared these comments: “My husband and I have been in the process of building a home and luckily ended up consulting with Dunn Lumber. We can say that this experience and the attention that Jennifer has given us has been above and beyond. She has had to navigate some difficult situations with us and our contractor. She has come on site multiple times without question and has tried to make this process as seamless as possible. We believe she advocated for us in a way that no other contractor has during this process.”

Working with customers and seeing the result of a project is her favorite part of her job, says Sexton, who has been a Dunn Lumber employee for seven years.

“Making the homeowner’s vision become reality is really rewarding,” she says. “The biggest part of my job is keeping everyone, the contractors and homeowners, on the same page and up to date so everything works smoothly from start to finish.”

In her off time, Sexton enjoys the outdoors, including just about anything in and on water, including boating and swimming. She also grew up a dirt track racing fan and can often be found at the nearby Wilmot Raceway, where her father competes.

The Above & Beyond Award is presented to high-performing employees who work within the Spahn & Rose family of companies, which includes Dunn Lumber, Metro Building Products, City Lumber and Still Lumber. These employees are recognized for high levels of customer care and significant contributions to their team. Employees can be nominated for the monthly Above & Beyond Award by coworkers, supervisors and customers. When a customer submits a review, any employees mentioned are nominated for the honor. Customers can also nominate employees for Above & Beyond through Spahn & Rose’s social media channels, including Metro’s Facebook page and Spahn & Rose’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Sexton and other monthly winners of the award receive a $100 Visa gift card and are eligible to be named Employee of the Year, which includes a $1,000 award.
