San Antonio’s Biggest Loser

SAN ANTONIO — The results are in!  San Antonio Alpha employees competed in the company’s first ever Biggest Loser contest, and WOW!  We are pleased to announce this year’s winner, Steven Brucks.  Steven has been a technician with Alpha for almost three years, and is the San Antonio office’s Safety Coordinator–hence the nickname “Safety Steve.”  After six months, Steven lost an astounding 96.5 pounds–that’s about sixteen pounds per month on average!

Victor began working at Alpha just over a year ago, but Alpha is just one part of his life.  When not on the job, Victor likes to beat the Texas heat at the lake, the beach, and the pool.  But he might not have much time for the life aquatic this summer—we at Alpha want to join Victor and his wife Jessica in welcoming their first son, Damian Joseph, born May 21st!  Congratulations, Victor and Jessica!
