Today our spotlight centers on Cody Simmons, our Director of Marketing!
Describe your journey into Summit Home Remodeling.
My inspiration to start Summit came from wanting to do business the right way, every time. At Summit, we do the work the right way, the first time, with the best possible products. Every, single, time. Then on top of that, we offer the best warranty in the industry. Coming from the United States Marine Corps, doing business the right way, and keeping our word to our customers means a LOT to me. I take a lot of pride in that. I knew with Matt and Brian, we would have that here at Summit, and to be a part of something like that, is special.
I’ve been in this industry for about 7 years, working for various companies. After realizing there wasn’t too much room to grow, Matt and Brian had ideas to start something better, thus the idea of Summit Home Remodeling was born. We started the group, and they wanted me to be the face of marketing. We didn’t even have an office back then, just a simple apartment complex, knocking on various doors in my Chevy Malibu. It’s amazing how far we’ve come!
What is your favorite part about working here?
The culture, hands down. My favorite part about working here is that we work the right way all the time. I wanna make sure I work for someone who aspires to give it their all the first time and stays consistent. We all have pride in what we do, and the fact I get to work with all my friends makes the job even more enjoyable! I love our work and we take pride of it.
What do you like doing outside of work?
I have two dogs whom I love to play fetch and frisbee with. I also love hanging with my girlfriend. Considering myself a very outdoorsy person, I like fishing, playing basketball, going to cookouts, watching the Ravens and the Tarheels, and even going to country concerts. Living by the water has certainly made these hobbies even better. I really like to spend time with my family, too, in which my nieces and nephews like to play sports.
Summit gives me the ability of so much flexibility between work and life - it’s one of the highlights of working here and I can’t see myself happier with any other company.
Any plans for the future you’d want to mention?
Just growth, both personal and professional. I love being the reason why someone feels like they are successful - one of the best feelings in the world. Seeing other people succeed is a goal that I will never stop enjoying. Being one of the three people who started this company, I take a lot of pride in it - I’m in a really good place in life and Summit has a lot to do with it. By far Summit is the best place I’ve worked and I plan on keeping it that way for a long time.
Cody adopts a selfless, caring attitude that was all try to emit on our coworkers that builds on an atmosphere where we all try to succeed. We hope you have a great Friday!
