Delivering a good product in a timely manner is a must in the print industry. So much of that equation depends on the people who literally deliver the finished physical product.
This is where Hugh Price comes in. Employed by Mount Vernon for 26 years, he is the main driver in our shop and spends most of his days on the road.
Here is where I’d like to brag a little. This is the seventh employee spotlight that I’ve written since we started them last fall. If you added up all of the years of experience these seven stellar employees have at Mount Vernon you would get more than 207 years! Let that sink in … that is commitment and knowledge that we really value. This is why I love to share their stories.
Hugh gets his greatest satisfaction from seeing and communicating with customers while he is making his many deliveries around the Baltimore and Washington D.C. regions. Even though he spends most of his days in traffic, he truly enjoys what he does. As you can probably imagine, delivery schedules are constantly changing but Hugh always finds a way to make it happen.
When I asked Hugh about his proudest moment at Mount Vernon, he smiled and responded that is was when he realized he had met his best friend for life. He has also made many other great friendships over the past 26 years. (Retaining hard-working employees who know and trust each other has always been important at Mount Vernon.)
Although the evolutions in the print industry certainly capture Hugh’s attention, he is happy that logistics have remained a constant and an important part of customer satisfaction.
Hugh has been married to his wife Kimberly for 21 years, and he enjoys spending time with his children, Hugh Jr. and Porche. In his spare time, he enjoys flying radio-controlled airplanes and watching the Oakland Raiders play football
We thank Hugh for his many great years of service – and for putting up with D.C. traffic!
