Aaron LaMere

Build Manager

My background is more multi-faceted than most. I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit I suppose. In the past 15-20 years I have worked in operations, operations management, business to business sales, account management, software development, and accounts receivable and accounting. I've owned my own businesses, and I've worked for both small, medium, and large businesses. I've been a contractor, an employee and also a businesses owner. I like to think that this background helps me to see a bigger picture from a business standpoint. As a manager, I think it has also helped me to see some things from other team members' perspectives.

In each working space that I've joined in the last decade, I've tried to help out in any way that I could. My vision often goes well beyond my title and the daily expectations of the job I was hired for. I try to perform my job with excellence of course! I'm also always on the lookout for places where I can add some amount of value beyond what is generally expected. I'm looking forward to working more with the greater team at Sigma and helping this team out in any way that I can.

Questions & Answers

How do you make people laugh?

I really try not to take things too seriously. I'm always trying to lighten the mood by quoting well known comedies or even just poking fun at our my own seriousness sometimes when it gets a little too intense.

What's your favorite productivity hack or time-saving trick?

Something I've done to keep myself as organized and effective as possible is utilizing dashboards and then combining them with daily reporting tools to establish business priorities on a daily/weekly basis. These dashboards often drive a lot of daily activity during our build periods while at the same time offer visibility of build tasks and daily goals, inventory levels, and bill of materials management status to hundreds of other team members.
