Hollywood Crawford Newsletter – January 2024

Welcome to the first HR Newsletter of 2024. As the premier garage door dealer in San Antonio, TX, metropolitan area, Hollywood Crawford Door Company has offered their customers exceptional garage doors and openers and best in class customer service since 1947. The HR department has been actively enhancing its recruitment strategies and increasing training and development opportunities to recruit and develop the best talent. We are pleased to share some recent updates with you as we enter into a new year and acknowledge the contributions of all our 78 team members.

Message from Randy Oliver, President of the Hollywood-Crawford Door Co.

I want to thank everyone for helping make 2023 a successful year for their fellow team members and for Hollywood Crawford. As we start a new year, one of our goals for 2024 should be to apply the following quote from Dave Ramsey, “Every morning when you get up, you have the option to add things to the world or tear things down. Choose well!” Let us all strive this year to choose well and add things to this world by choosing to have a positive impact on the lives of those we touch! The lives you touch include your family, your fellow team members, your neighbors, our customers, and the people you meet wherever you go and wherever you are. One way each of us can have a positive impact on those around us is to do our best each and every day. There are 70+ families that depend on you and how well you do things just as you depend on the other 70+ team members here.  All of us are important and we each play a special role in each other’s success. Choose to make a difference. Choose well this year!
