CELEBRATING 25 YEARS – WestCMR celebrated this milestone with a bang! On May 20th, 2022, we hosted a ribbon cutting celebration in our newly renovated upstairs space, where Randy announced a surprise donation of $10,000 to the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay.
GROWTH – We completed a comprehensive renovation of our upstairs offices. This renovation was the first step of our upcoming building expansion, which is scheduled to be completed in 2024.
LOCAL ART – Our outside warehouse wall got an upgrade! After putting it to a vote with the entire team, it was decided to adorn our west-facing wall, the only visible part of our campus from the Pinellas Trail, with a mural from local artists Juan Pablo and Vanessa Parra.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – We brought back an employee-favorite: our Lunch and Learns! Led by our training manager Elise Bexley, these one-hour sessions help our team members better understand some of the product lines we carry, and explore new ways to promote them to customers.
CEO BUILD – Our CEO Randy Ware was part of the Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas and West Pasco Counties inaugural CEO Build. Randy volunteered at the site of a homeowner candidate’s future house, where he lent a hand in landscaping the property.
BEAUTIFICATION – The WestCMR team took it upon themselves to clean up about 300 yards of the Pinellas Trail, directly adjacent to our fence. In a few months, volunteers from our team removed trees, invasive vines, and lots of garbage. We then partnered with the Pinellas County extension of the University of Florida to plant dozens of bald cypress and long leaf pine trees.
COVER STAR – CEO Randy Ware appeared on the cover of the May edition of Belleair Living Magazine. In his interview, he discussed business history, the significance of the 25th anniversary milestone, as well as some professional and personal goals for the future.
