At Apex Facility Resources, we believe that our greatest strength is our people. We are proud of our dedicated team of unique and talented employees who enact Apex values to deliver the right workspace every day.
One Apex team member is featured in the Smarter Workspace blog each month. Read on to meet Chris Grandy, Warehouse Manager, and learn more about your workspace partner.
Behind The Scenes
Chris has been the warehouse manager here at Apex Facility Resources for nearly three years. With a combined 27 years of wisdom in warehouse management, project management, project coordination and sales, he is well-versed in the business from every angle – which is handy, since he keeps track of everyone and everything going on behind the scenes! “In a given day, I talk to every department, which is one reason why I really like what I do out here…I get 50 or more questions a day from all different angles,” Chris explains.
The first in the warehouse each morning and the last to leave, Chris is dedicated to keeping the warehouse running smoothly in shipshape condition. A typical day includes being the go-to person for all shipping and receiving needs, pulling product from storage, staging furniture orders for projects, and overseeing the asset management team. “Apex is very unique because we have a lot of diversity in what we do. We don’t just sell office furniture – we will move it, store it, and are able to travel across the country for our clients.”
As one of Apex’s most smiling faces, Chris says, “The most rewarding thing for me is the fast-paced environment and how wonderful all of the employees are. I really enjoy the warehouse crew, we’ve had great continuity.”
Chris enjoys playing a nice round of golf, spending time with his family (including two pugs and one French bulldog/pug mix), and gardening/landscaping – “I have a great green thumb,” laughs Chris. “Also, I’m kind of a wino,” he says. On the weekend, you can find Chris in Woodinville Wine Country with his wonderful wife.
