Hailing from Michigan City, Indiana, Chelsey Hawkins attended Purdue University, where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management. Prior to joining the Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. team, Chelsey worked in a variety of hospitality industries, including restaurants, hotels, theme parks, a casino, and even sports. These opportunities provided Chelsey with a wealth of knowledge for enhancing the guest experience, which has ultimately made a positive impact on the ways she interacts—externally and internally—with clients today.
Chelsey found Maxwell Roofing while planning a move from Chicago to Tennessee. Seeing an opening on the Maxwell team that fit her skillset, Chelsey moved forward with applying, and she officially joined the team in January of 2020. “[Maxwell Roofing] seemed like a great company to be a part of with good family values,” says Chelsey, who has since learned that it truly is! As Maxwell’s Sales & Marketing Coordinator, Chelsey seeks out bid opportunities, manages project bid flows, provides customer service, maintains CRM systems, documents OSHA safety training events, reviews marketing materials, and creates close-out packets, proposals, sales reports, and warranties. Internally, Chelsey works closely with Maxwell’s Sales & Service departments, and externally, she works with Maxwell’s marketing partners and clients involved in the bidding stages and close-out stages.
Why Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. Stands Out
When it comes to what Chelsey has grown to love most about Maxwell Roofing, she says, “Everyone is willing to help each other and teach each other new things, so there is an opportunity to continuously grow.” Chelsey also enjoys the opportunity to collaborate with multiple departments. Probably her favorite part about her role in relation to the company, however, is the unique opportunity to collaborate on marketing efforts to provide multiple means of communications to Maxwell’s clients.
Since Chelsey is still relatively new to Tennessee, she enjoys exploring new places and getting to know the different areas that make up this beautiful state. Outside of work, you’ll find Chelsey traveling when possible, reading, and spending quality time with family and friends—including her husband J.J. and her cat Mila. With some lifelong goals of continuing to travel and explore the world, Chelsey hopes to be able to resume trips in the near future!
