Worker Wednesday: Austin Forbes

June 8, 2022

What do you enjoy about working at Lithko? What motivates you to wake up and go to work?

I enjoy the team at Lithko. All the people around me make coming to work fun, and they motivate me to want to do my job so they can be successful at theirs.

What responsibilities did you have when you first started with Lithko? What are your responsibilities now?

My first responsibilities were concrete tracking and quality control for KENECT, a high rise in mid-town. I also came in for night pours to provide relief for the field team members who were needed the next day. Now, I am a Senior Project Manager and primarily responsible for the office team of two of our major job sites.

What work challenges excite you?

I enjoy creating a plan with our team and the constant problem solving required to make sure we achieve or exceed our original goals.

What has been your favorite project?

I think I would have to say KENECT was my favorite project. I don’t think it will stay that way forever, but the first one was an exciting time just getting my feet wet and learning all the personalities of the crew.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I don’t think there is much people don’t know about me. I am a pretty open book.
