Employee Spotlight: David Maxwell

Background:

A true Nashville, Tennessee native (which is rare these days in the bustling and growing city), David Maxwell lived in St. Louis, Missouri and Austin, Texas for extended periods before moving back home to Music City shortly after the city’s notorious flood in 2010. David graduated from Saint Louis University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. After realizing that job options were limited in the psychology field without an advanced degree, he began working in restaurants to pay the bills. He quickly fell in love with the fast-paced action and customer service oriented business. With a new found passion for the food service industry, he enrolled in culinary school, where he graduated with a culinary arts degree. Prior to David’s venture into the commercial roofing world, he put his culinary skills to work by serving as a cook and chef at various restaurants in both Austin and Nashville. “My tenure in the hospitality and service industry prepared me well for our service-forward and customer satisfaction-driven business model at Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc.,” explains David, who ended up leaving the restaurant and hospitality industry to adopt a more regular work schedule. “In thinking about my future and family prospects, I began to mull the possibilities of such a career change, and the family roofing business entered my mind, deliberately, for the first time in my life,” says David, who’s now entering his seventh year with the company.

Current Role:

As Vice President of Services at Maxwell Roofing, no single day looks the same for David. Serving alongside a dedicated and talented service team of around thirty people from office administration to management to service sales and estimation to technicians, David works most closely with Maxwell’s operations and account management team members. When it comes to client interaction, David says, “On any given day, I may work directly with building owners, contractors, property managers, building engineers, and facility maintenance employees.”

Why Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. Stands Out:

What does David appreciate most about the family business? He says, “I value that our company takes time to invest in people. We understand that, ultimately, we are in the relationship business. Our focus is to manage and exceed expectations with all employees and customers.” David is also appreciative of his team, saying “My team is very good at what they do, and they have responded well to some significant organizational changes throughout the past year. They have been positive, upbeat, and able to surpass our most recent annual goals amid noteworthy changes and departmental transformation.” David believes that the culture of the Maxwell team revolves around mutual trust and respect. With a relatively young department that has a diverse range of strengths, David knows he can count on team members to fulfill their roles and responsibilities. “We are experiencing some ambitious growth initiatives and adapting to the accompanying changes with professionalism and enthusiasm. I’m very proud of the fact that our team daily raises the bar and refuses to settle for mediocrity,” affirms David.

Personal:

Outside of work, you can find David doing just about anything outdoors, especially swimming, hiking, and running. A huge fan of the Nashville Predators since the team’s inception, David always looks forward to attending hockey games at Bridgestone Arena. He’s the proud father of two very active young boys, Henry (age 3) and Gilbert (age 2) and enjoys every moment of quality time he gets to spend with them. A lover of the Appalachian Mountains, one of David’s bucket list items is to hike the Appalachian Trail from start to finish at some point. David also enjoys day trips to various local and state parks with his sons. They particularly love the Fall Creek Falls area, as well as the Smoky Mountains. As a former chef, David surprisingly doesn’t hit up Nashville’s growing culinary scene much anymore, however, he and his sons enjoy visiting some of Music City’s best lunch spots, and they’ve become quite fond of both Hugh Baby’s and Hattie B.’s these days.
