Spotlight: Jared Peoples

If you’ve ever worked with or gotten to know Jared Peoples over the last two years, then you know Jared doesn’t waste words. He says what he intends to say and nothing else. This ability to speak leanly can be intimidating in a world where senseless chatter runs rampant, but we at C.A. Murren find it to be refreshing and genuine to say the least. Jared is a meticulous person who thrives on routine. He likes to keep his area clean because its peaceful. He enjoys playing basketball at the gym, and video games on Saturdays with his long-time buddies [...]

Spotlight: Evan Pope

Evan Pope’s story has been a test of strength. “I was working at Plant Branch in Milledgeville when it was still operational. In 2009, just after my 2-year anniversary, one of our ash hoppers had clogged and had to be opened up. When I did that, all the ash poured out onto the floor…the ash was between 800 and 1000 degrees. It melted my boot when it made contact. While one of my teammates went to get the proper PPE so we could free the air line, the temperature had risen 40 degrees in 10 minutes. By the time I [...]

Spotlight: Andrew Culpepper

It was a hot July Monday in 2016 when Andrew Culpepper arrived at the Grayson office as a Project Manager. At the time we were involved in some residential work in Gwinnett County, and Andrew came in mid-project. It’s not every day that you get to work with someone like Andrew Culpepper. You can always count on Andrew to take on any task with enthusiasm and vigor. He’s a solid team player and has a resilience matched only by his loyalty and commitment.

Fundamental Number 9 – Listen Generously:

Think of the last time you tried to have a serious conversation with someone who was looking at their phone or computer. How did that make you feel? We are not fully present in a conversation in which our mind is wandering or we’re reading our emails. If you are truly present in a conversation, you are not doing anything else. You are focused on the other person and you are listening with your whole body. #listengenerously #murrenway

Spotlight: Dave Davis

“Number 1—act with integrity. That would be my favorite fundamental. I also like lead by example, but to lead by example you have to have integrity. You have to lead with integrity.” These are great words, spoken by none other than our Dave Davis, Superintendent, who is celebrating 10 years with the team this month. We can attest that Dave lives these words. “He’s a very honest man,” a teammate said simply. Dave is honest, kind, and a great teacher. He’s always willing to work with his crew, truly leading them by example, as he shows them how to do [...]
