Builders Exchange of Michigan: What’s the first thing you do each morning when you get into the office?
Becky: First, I grab a cup of coffee and a snack. Then, I email my team to say “Good morning!” and find out where they are with their workload. I want my team to know that I care and that we are here to help each other. At that point, I can prioritize and shift things around as necessary.

BX: What has been the most exciting or interesting part of working with the construction industry?
B: I enjoy finding out as much as I can about projects before many people have even heard about them. Each morning I also like to check out which companies have looked at the projects we have posted the day before. This helps me stay in tune with what projects are of interest and reminds me of what a difference my job makes and how it helps others.

BX: What’s your favorite compliment you’ve received from a member?
B: I love hearing “Wow, how did you find out about this project?” and I often hear, “You guys are on top of things!”

BX: How does the Builders Exchange of Michigan provide value to its members?
B: We do the research and follow up on the projects so our members don’t have to. Members can also benefit from a variety of discounts on products and services for their company and their employees, and we offer several networking opportunities and training to help our members grow their businesses. We are constantly improving and evaluating how we can best serve our members.
