"People don't get promoted for doing their jobs well; they get promoted by demonstrating their potential to do more."
This sentiment is without exception for our new rising star, Marques Lynch II. This week we will celebrate Marques' one-year anniversary with PacTec, along with a well-deserved promotion to Quality Assurance Engineer. Please help us in congratulating him on this well-earned advancement by dropping him a comment below..
Mr. Lynch is the epitome of potential - joining us as an Engineering Intern amid the COVID-19 pandemic, he quickly proved to be an incredibly valuable member of our Engineering team. As Quality Assurance Engineer, Marques will now be part of a team that ensures all PacTec products manufactured in our facilities meet or exceed industry certification standards and our own PacTec quality standards. Marques will also be the liaison between our domestic and international Quality Teams. Additionally, he will review and approve supplier certifications, oversee material and equipment testing, and handle some of the product quoting for our Sales Team.
"It gives me great pride to be an advocate for our customers, ensuring that PacTec is living up to its promise of providing the highest quality products we can for the customer's waste needs," Marques says. Recently obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering and a Minor in Business Administration from LSU, Marques is very well prepared for the challenges within the world of quality and his vast array of knowledge will help him stay abreast of current industry trends.
Thus far, Marques' well-rounded attributes have served him well, especially after being thrown into the wonderful world of Logistics during the worst logistic crisis of our time. "It occasionally felt like trial-by-fire, but I feel like my previous work experience prepared me well for that," he jovially recalls. That experience includes a few restaurant jobs (busboy/barback, server, line cook), Camp Counselor at NASA's Fitness Center, Dorm Desk Assistant, research/work-study at Louisiana Transportation Research Center, and Best Buy sales consultant.
Blazing the trail under the tutelage of his parents (father a Space Suit Engineer with NASA and mother, a Population Health Nurse Care Manager), Marques found his niche in Industrial Engineering even though his younger sister, a brand marketing manager, graduated a year before him from the same alma mater, but we digress. This is all about you, Marques! When he's not Engineering for PacTec, you can find him on the basketball court shooting "nothing but net," watching basketball, football, or soccer, hanging with friends, and listening to music.
