Spotlight on Matthew Giannotti
This month, First Impression Security Doors is proud to spotlight Matthew Giannotti, our Field Operations Manager for the Iron Entry Door Division. Although he was promoted to this position just a year ago, Matt is a familiar face as he has been with the company for three years. In his job, communication is key and Matt is great at communicating. He acts as the go-between or mediator for our clients and our clients’ contractor whether that be an architect, designer, or home builder particularly with new builds or large scale projects. It is his job to lay out a game plan for the clients’ contractor to ensure that a custom designed door looks and fits the way that a client wishes. It is also his job to make sure that the agreed upon timelines are met and that all of the work is done to First Impression’s guidelines and specs and our high standards of quality control and inspection. Through his position, he works with houses in all stages of building including new homes from Shea Homes and Standard Pacific, just to name a couple. He has also been in construction for sixteen years, so he knows the ins and outs of the business which gives him a broad skill set to bring to the company.
When it comes to working at First Impression, the operative word for Matt is “pride.” He was “ecstatic and proud” that FISD won the Angie’s List Super Service award for a seventh consecutive year. When asked what makes FISD such a great company to work for, his response was that not only does he take pride in his workmanship, but so does everyone else at FISD and that they all work as a team which is why he is such an incredibly dedicated employee. Matt summed it up best for us when he said that it’s “not hard [being dedicated] when you see the tremendous quality work we perform.”
Communication is also key on a personal level as he helps tutor in math in the community, helping everyone from honor roll students to his honor graduate fiancé. He and his fiancé have three children and he loves spending his off time with his family.
