According to Craig Annis, starting with Perma-Seal in October 2018 was the best work decision he’s ever made. As a drain tile foreman, Craig is out in the field meeting homeowners and providing them with superior service. He relishes the opportunity to help homeowners in their time of need.
Craig’s manager Emily says, “It has been an awesome experience to watch Craig grow at Perma-Seal in his short time with the company. Whatever opportunity or task Craig has faced (dump truck, drain tile, sales, etc.), he not only tackles the task at hand with a positive attitude, but you can see him truly embrace the challenge.”
Let’s take a few minutes to learn more about Craig and what makes him tick as we celebrate our August Motivator of the Month.
Q&A // Get to know Craig
What do you enjoy about your role at Perma-Seal?
I enjoy being able to help people in their time of need. It is fulfilling.
What motivates you to live Perma-Seal’s Core Values?
My family motivates me in everything I do, and Perma-Seal’s Core Values are aligned with how my parents raised me so it’s second nature to live them each day at work and at home.
What has been your favorite charitable event that you’ve been a part of with Perma-Seal?
I loved our time with the Hinsdale Humane Society and making blankets for the dogs in the shelter. My wife and I are huge animal lovers… we’ve even done a funeral for our goldfish that passed away!
Hometown? What do you love about it?
I was born in Arizona but raised in Sarasota, Fla. I absolutely loved growing up on the water with the beaches and fishing. You can’t beat casting a line at 12 a.m. using the light from the dock — I’m all over it!
Now that I’m Illinois, my family and I are enjoying our new home in Bolingbrook.
Favorite sports team?
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 100%!!!!!!
What do you enjoy doing for fun?
I’m very outdoorsy, and I love bow hunting. At the end of a long day, there’s nothing I’d rather do more than pick up my bow and shoot.
Anything you’d like to share about your family?
I have the most amazing wife, Julie. She is the absolute best thing that has ever happened to me. Definitely a game-changer. My baby boy Noah is the man! These two people are my entire world. They are the reason I work so hard.
