When the President of the United States reaches his first 100 days in office, members of the media, politicians on both sides of the aisle, as well as average folks like you and me, critique his performance to that point.
One hundred of anything is a milestone: 100 days of school is a big deal now, and centennial celebrations are given for just about everything, from communities and universities to organizations.
When people reach 100 years of age, they get a letter from the sitting President, a pretty cool birthday party (soft foods only!), as well as a shout-out from Al Roker on NBC’s Today Show.
Phoenix Construction recently hit the century mark: We now have 100 employees, reaching that goal in just one short year. This feat was accomplished with one key ingredient: Success (not a brag, just a fact).
Rapid growth requires a big commitment. Phoenix Construction founder and owner, Kaleb Brewer, said the growth was inevitable with the company’s commitment to excellence.
“I’m extremely proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in such a short amount of time,” Brewer said. “Hyper-growth is only possible with great employees and great leadership, and there is no shortage of either around Phoenix. Simply put, it starts with and ends with great people.”
Chief Operating Officer, Kent Johnson, sees no end to the growth, saying, “Life is full of achievements, mile-markers in time, so being part of a company’s history is an honorable feeling. I started here almost two years ago when there were only four employees, including myself — I blinked, and now we are over 100 and counting.”
“Phoenix takes great pride in the achievements of their employees, and I truly believe we will hit 200 employees by the end of the year,” he continued. “We really work as a team, so I see no limits to what we can accomplish.”
This is a milestone for the books. For those all who are celebrating the century mark, please accept our compliments, too! Happy 100!
