Antis Employee Wins Roofing Alliance MVP Award - Remarkable Rise from Ranch Hand in Mexico to Team Leader in SoCal Roofing Industry
Victorino Trujillo-Montez won the Roofing Alliance's coveted MVP award this year for his leadership, character, community contributions and safety awareness. The native of Mexico came to the U.S. at 18, overcame hardship and language barriers, and became one of Antis Roofing & Waterproofing's leading field techs.
The MVP Awards program celebrates workers who are outstanding employees within their companies, characterized by having a strong work ethic, showing leadership, initiative and resourcefulness, earning an outstanding safety record, supporting their co-workers and giving back to their communities.
Trujillo-Montez, who arrived in the U.S. from Mexico as a young man, has shown remarkable achievement in his chosen field. Despite a significant language barrier and lack of educational opportunities, Trujillo-Montez became a skilled roofer across all methods and is the first person that Antis crew members look to for guidance.
“He’s a leader by example,” says Field Supervisor Jesus Zermeno. He doesn’t yell things like ‘OK guys get to work;’ instead, he takes action and leads the way so that the rest of the crew follows.”
"As a company owner, I notice that some of the guys in the field don't 'hold my stare,' or look me straight in the eye," said Antis Roofing Founder and CEO, Charles Antis. "Victorino is not one of them. He is one of those consistently driven workers who underpin the entire industry.”
