Jumping Right In – Meet Payton

Employee Spotlight is a new series intended to share a glimpse into our team. Our hope is that you can get to know us a little better.

PAYTON'S ROLE AT BLAST IT CLEAN

Payton is one of the newest members of our crew. In just a short time, Payton found his place and jumped right into our company culture. Payton is always willing to take on new tasks and continue to develop and challenge himself. Payton strives to surround himself with positive people and always shows up with a great attitude and is ready to work. We are fortunate to have him and are impressed with his ability to catch on quickly and retain the knowledge of our company.

"Payton stays busy the entire time. I love knowing that I don't have to focus on what he is doing while we are out on the field blasting. Payton is always cleaning or doing something to help things run more smoothly on a job site"

— Jeremy, Team Lead
