WHITTIER, CA – April 22, 2016 – Oliver Hunt, also known as â€śWindyâ€ť, has dedicated 30 years to working at Oltmans Construction Co. He started his career in 1978 as a Laborer at the age of 27. Due to his talents and hard work, Oliver made Labor Foreman in only six (6) months. As things began to slow down in 1990, he left Oltmans for eight years to pursue other work. He returned in 1998 and has been a fixture in the Oltmans Field Operations ever since.
If you ever have time to sit down and talk to Oliver, he has some great stories and memories to tell. In my interview with Oliver, I was able to ask a few questions:
What was your favorite project?
- The Towne Center project, which was completed back in the 1980â€™s as well as the Quinn CAT project with Bill Gamboa. They were interesting and challenging jobs. The Goodman Eastvale project is a good project too. I like the volume, tempo of the job, atmosphere, and challenges that we had to overcome. Diego (Carpenter Foreman) was a big help.
Any plans for retirement?
- I will be vacationing in the Bahamas for the first 10 days. I have 16 grandkids and my wife has a to-do list. I am also a Pastor at My Fatherâ€™s House Church in Riverside, so there are always things to do there.
I would first like to thank Windy for all of the hard work he committed to Oltmans. He is a very positive man and that creates a good work atmosphere. He is a teacher of his co workers and makes us all better for his efforts. He has definitely helped us (Oltmans) to be stronger by educating our employees. He is very giving, reliable, and consistent with his service to Oltmans. I am very glad I had the opportunity to know him and work with him. He should know that he is very appreciated and will be missed. And now I would like to congratulate him on his new mission of retirement. He has worked hard and I wish him the best, and good health.
