As a young man, Miguel made the trek from Guayaquil, Ecuador to the United States in search of a quality job and a good future for his children. It did not take long for him to decide that he had fallen in love with this great country. Later on alongside his loving wife, Norka, he became an American citizen, and has been hard at work ever since.
Today, Miguel has managed to rack up over 25 years of big-box retail management experience. In those 25 years Miguel encountered wide success at various locations ranging from Miami, Florida to Charlotte, North Carolina. He is hoping to once again build a name for himself at ABS Insulation, and is looking forward to working alongside his team and fellow crew.
One of the things Miguel values most is honest, hard work. He makes sure to maintain the highest quality on all his work, and is always ready to be fully accountable for any slip-ups, so that he can solve them right away. However, Miguel does know that sometimes the road gets bumpy, he'd like to share a quotation that he holds near and dear to him: "I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination." -Jimmy Dean
