Mr. Todd Parsons (pictured left with Mr. Edward Boron, CFO) received the award of Employee of the Month for the month of July as a result of his dedication and hard work. Mr. Parsons has shown exceptional work ethic as our head financial analyst. In his short time here at Continental Tide, he has been instrumental in spearheading multiple initiatives including critical accounting and cost tracking projects. Mr. Parsons’ focus on process improvement and creative problem solving has been a huge boost to the financial team and to the company.
Mr. Matthew Rauth (pictured left with Mr. Jim Kendall, Waterfront Coordinator) received the distinguished award of Employee of the Month for the month of August. Mr. Rauth’s actions and efforts in leading a Continental Tide and subcontractor team in the shop dismantling, assessing, refurbishing and reassembling of the side port crane and flight deck doors have been exceptional. His leadership and hard work resulted in the delivery of both the side port crane and flight deck doors for reinstallation in record time. Mr. Rauth has been a positive addition to the CT Team!
Nick Dimm (pictured left) is Continental Tide’s Employee of the Month for the month of September. His efforts overhauling the flight deck doors, flushing the portside capstan, and refurbishing the crane hydraulics, ram assemblies, and boom extension chains were instrumental in the on-time completion of all tasking onboard USS Kearsarge (LHD-3).
Before the NFL season opener game on Thursday night, Brandon Brewer (Welder) was pretty confident that his Pittsburgh Steelers would beat Cassie Massey’s (Administrative Assistant) New England Patriots. Mr. Brewer stated that he would expect Mrs. Massey to wear a Steelers jersey the next day. Looks like the tables have turned, Mr. Brewer.
Continental Tide employees working around the globe took part in raising awareness of breast cancer by wearing pink Continental Tide T-shirts to work. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States only behind skin cancer. Although this disease primarily affects women (1 in every 8), statistics show that the lifetime risk for men to develop breast cancer is 1 in 1,000. A group of employees at Continental Tide’s Virginia Beach office took time to show off the Breast Cancer Awareness T-shirts while an AIT department crew working at a base in Japan pose in front of the USS Blue Ridge LCC-19. Join us and show your support! Let’s spread awareness!!
