Operating a warehouse with thousands of PV solar energy system components for a busy installation crew requires a methodical manager focused on ensuring safety, security, and organization – someone with integrity, foresight, and respect for customers and coworkers. From the day he joined the PPM Solar team, Montoria “Monty” Harris demonstrated his mastery of these attributes as our Warehouse Manager, earning him recognition in this month’s Staff Spotlight!
Having obtained an Associate of Science Degree in Computer Science while serving in the United States Air Force, Monty first cultivated organizational skillfulness by installing, supporting, and maintaining computer servers and other computer systems. He later transitioned to private business operations as the Stock Transfer Supervisor for a national automotive parts distribution company. Monty managed employees overseeing product delivery, quality control, customer service, and worldwide parts distribution.
Monty joined the PPM Solar team in March of 2022 and instantly began implementing a strategy of improved communication, accurate inventory controls, and customer job preparation. In his Warehouse Manager role, Monty collaborates with PPM Solar’s project managers and installation crew to coordinate the acquisition, warehousing, and job staging for all projects and their components.
“His care for each project radiates an unmatched thoughtfulness,” says Jason Gonos, co-owner of PPM Solar. “Since Monty joined PPM, the warehouse has steadily increased its output and ability to aid the field crews in getting projects completed faster and more efficiently,” he added. Other colleagues offer similar endorsements of Monty.
Monty’s work doesn’t end with the conclusion of a workday – because he is also the Senior Pastor of the Nolan Missionary Baptist Church of Willison, Florida. “Pastor Harris is one of the most influential orators of his generation,” sharing his faith “with a new school delivery,” according to the church’s website.
“I love encouraging and developing others to become the very best that they can be,” says Monty – and we at PPM Solar know he is sincere in these words.
Monty’s favorite football teams are Florida Gators, Miami Heat, and Miami Dolphins. “I love freshwater fishing, sports, and spending time with my beautiful wife, kids, and grandkids,” he adds.
We are so very humbled as a company that Monty joined our team. He is an inspiration that offers a genuine spirit of encouragement daily. Thank you, Monty!
