Accounts Receivable/Office Administration
Becky has been with Guardian close to its inception. She is an administrative professional who offers excellent communication and reception skills. Becky is aware of the needs of our team, crew, and clients and does a good job of anticipating and responding to those needs. Becky also stickhandles all of our account receivables and general office administration. She is very much appreciated by the field Crew, in addition she partners with Megan to manage the front-end administrative duties for the company and even takes great care of our resident rescue cat, Phinn.
Accounts Payable Clerk/Office Administration
Megan joined our team in late 2019 as a practicum student, we liked her, and her work so much that we kept her. She has quickly taken over our accounts payable responsibilities along with a variety of other duties as assigned, without complaint. Megan is a quick learner, not afraid to ask questions, and provides high quality, consistent, and reliable work. She communicates effectively with customers and team members, has a high attention to detail and quickly adapts to technology. Megan is a staple in our front-end operations and we are very grateful to have her on board. Although she seems quiet, she has a very keen sense of humour and is able to keep up with the office gentlemen who are not shy on practical joking. She also has a cat named Pam, after The Office television series character, so we like her more now.
Meet Phinn. Named after our friend and colleague that left us in the summer of 2019, Scott Phinney, who also had a deep affection for cats. Phinn was living at the Brandon Pound and we believe he was a street cat so we were happy to give him a job in our shop as Chief Mouser, albeit he spends more time in the office sleeping on a chair, or at the front door. The team has really taken to Phinn, not to mention some clients and vendors who make special trips to just to see him. Phinn has been a good addition, getting into mild and manageable trouble mostly with mud and mice, and has even had some adventures like when he got locked in the closet with his food for an entire night.
Just wanted to pass on how thrilled we are with the fence. Your staff that put up the fence were so polite, and professional! They respected my yard and the neighbors. I will be definitely recommending Guardian Fencing to others. Again thank you for such an amazing looking fence...we love it!!!
Working with Guardian Fencing was an exceptional experience. Not only did they provide consistent communication and excellent quality of work, they proactively provided solutions to any roadblocks we encountered. They really went above and beyond to ensure our project remained on schedule. I highly recommend and would welcome the opportunity to work with them again!
