Jerry Wasson joined Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. in 2018 as the company’s Director of Human Resources. A California native, Wasson lived in Orange County, just 20 minutes from Disneyland, before making the move to Nashville. Wasson has a bachelor’s degree in business, with an emphasis in human resource management from Sacramento State University. Before taking a job with Maxwell Roofing, Wasson worked in HR at other construction companies, as well as in the parking industry.
As the sole member of the human resources team, Wasson is in charge of all personnel-related tasks at Maxwell Roofing. From the job application process to an employee’s retirement, Wasson helps grow the Maxwell team and works to keep employees satisfied with their jobs.
“My clients are all of the wonderful employees here at Maxwell Roofing but also the candidates that we get to talk to about our job openings,” says Wasson.“ I’m here to assist with the needs of the employees, whether field employees or managers,” he adds.
Wasson’s role changes with Maxwell’s needs, and he is currently leading the company’s recruiting efforts. Wasson performs most of the interviews and onboarding for new Maxwell employees and introduces them to the company and culture.
Why Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal Inc. Stands Out:
As Wasson was looking for jobs in preparation for a move to Nashville, he was drawn to Maxwell Roofing for its culture of professionalism and integrity. The fact that Maxwell was a family-owned business that values its employees also stood out.
“We work with good people who value what they do and who are really good at it,” Wasson affirms. “I love the growth we are experiencing and the way we are positioning ourselves for the future,” he adds.
Wasson and his wife have two daughters in college. When he isn’t working, he likes working in the yard and exploring his new home in Middle Tennessee. Wasson is also an avid sports fan.
