By: Katrina Touray
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.
What problems do you solve for clients in your role?
Each day provides different challenges for each client. I ensure their orders arrive to meet crunched time lines. I hatch out the behind the scenes quoting from difficult vendors and turn it in to a customer friendly quote. I save the day with short shipped or damaged orders. It’s my goal to have the damaged or short shipped parts replaced and delivered prior to installation!
What do you like most about your position at Apex?
My favorite part of my role is every day presents different jobs and new challenges. Therefore, my role is not repetitive nor boring. This allows me to feel like a Super Star Sherlock Holmes. My role allows me to investigate the issue at hand and save the day. Project coordinating has many moving parts that keep me intrigued and continuously grow my industry knowledge.
What keeps you engaged/passionate outside of work?
In my personal time, I enjoy an array of hobbies such as road racing, hiking, exploring the beauty that Washington state offers, photography, fishing and soaking up the sun any chance I get. My family is all out of state in Iowa so I also spend a lot of time with my friends here in WA, especially those associated with road racing. They are a wonderful group of people who are much like a big happy family.
How has Apex helped you grow and get to the next level?
I started here at Apex Kent as the Administrative Assistant. In that role Apex began to open my eyes to the office facilitation industry. I spent 9 months as admin and enjoyed every moment of it. As soon as I saw an opening as a Project Coordinator, I requested to apply. Upon transition into my new position Apex provided a great training plan to set me up for success. Apex places many useful training courses are everyone’s fingertips. Our access to Apex University, Insperity.com, Lynda.com and manufacture trainings are all great tools at my aid to continue to my grow with in the industry.
