9NEWS & the Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation select three finalists each year for their involvement in giving back to the community and fostering a movement of inclusivity. Andrew Schmidt, Founding Partner of Core Contractors, Roofing Systems, was named one of these finalists. This prestigious recognition is an honor not only for Andrew, but for Core Contractors as a company. We are thrilled and very proud of Andrew for this achievement and are excited to mirror his community involvement on a company level.
Below is Andrew’s feature as a 9NEWS Leader of the Year Finalist:
Andrew’s efforts have inspired an employee driven civic engagement program as part of our company culture over the past two years. We’ve set goals for each team member to volunteer for at least eight hours per quarter with a non-profit of their choosing. Whether it is group or individually activity, we encourage our team members to take a paid day off from Core to engage with a non-profit that they feel passionate about.
