Celebrating Employment Milestones for Semper Tek Team Members

5 and 10 year service members

Semper Tek instituted a new recognition program this year which was rolled out at its annual managers meeting earlier this month.  Team members who have served five years (ore more) and ten years were presented with a custom made Semper Tek Challenge Coin. The coin was inscribed with the team members name and length of service on the back and was presented in a frame.  We are pleased to celebrate the service of the following:

Scott Matheny – 11 years
Scott Wharton – 10 years
George Schmidt – 8 years
Jason Brinkmoeller – 7 years
Kevin Atchley – 7 years
Wayne Nicely – 6 years
Emily Jenkins – 6 years
Chad Howard – 5 years
Van Jenkins – 5 years
Debi Lancaster – 5 years
Joe Eisenhauer – 5 years

Semper Tek will continue to honor it’s team members as they reach milestones in increments of 5-years of service. We are very proud of these team members who have been with us many of our first 11-years in business!

Celebrating Our Veterans: George Schmidt, U.S. Marines and Army Reserve

Joined Semper Tek in 2011

George Schmidt is a six-year U.S. Marine Corps veteran and a 4-year Army Reserve Veteran. While in the Marines he held the rank of Corporal and was stationed at Paris Island, SC and Camp Lejeune, NC as a Military Policeman. He held the rank of Sergeant in the Army Reserves.

George now works as a Superintendent for Semper Tek. He credits his military service with his ability to better understand how the Government – Semper Tek’s primary client – operates. This understanding provides a tremendous benefit to George and our firm when completing projects at VA hospitals and military bases.
George strongly believes that everyone should serve their country in some capacity. He taught that to his son, Darren who also served in the U.S. Marine Corps. He believes that the military teaches discipline that helps one to be successful.

We are proud of the service of George Schmidt. We thank him, and all Veterans for their service and sacrifice this Veterans Day.
