Members of our Dallas construction materials testing team met up at GatSplat in Lewisville at the end of December for some paintball fun! Fifteen technicians, along with several Project Managers, took team building to a new level – by trying to crush the competition.
“Everyone had fun,” said Alpha Project Manager Danny Jauregui. “We had the opportunity to socialize outside of the work setting which was pretty cool.
“We challenge Alpha-Fort Worth to a paintball battle in the next few months!”
Your move Fort Worth — are you up for it?
After 34 years —- Alpha Testing Principal David “Pat” Stettner has officially entered the world of retirement! Alpha celebrated Pat and his wife Rena with a luncheon at our Dallas office last week.
Pat was one of the first employees hired by Alpha’s founder, Jim Hillhouse, joining Alpha on November 7, 1983 when the company was only eight months old. He wore every hat imaginable in his 34 years with Alpha, including project management, IT, accounting, and sales, just to name a few. He also was responsible for opening our San Antonio and Houston offices.
“The last 34 years have been the best 34 years of my life. I have totally enjoyed my work and the people I have had the pleasure of working with at Alpha Testing, Inc. I would not have been able to accomplish what we accomplished without the support I received from you all.” Pat Stettner, Principal
“No single person at Alpha has been more in tune with making sure a client was served properly than Pat Stettner,” said Jeff Wilt, Executive Principal. “It has been a great pleasure to work alongside Pat for the last 11 years.”
Congratulations, Pat! Time to enjoy the good life!”
Alpha celebrated Christmas in each of our service regions throughout December. As part of these celebrations, Alpha awarded our 2017 Founder’s Award to five very deserving members of the Alpha family. This award is given annually to members of our staff who exemplify the Mission and Vision of Alpha Testing.
Thank you to David Schledorn (Dallas), Amber Williams (Dallas), Mahsa Hedayati (Fort Worth), Sergio Quintero (Houston), and Colin Dlugosh (San Antonio) for being wonderful examples of the “Alpha Way!”
