Employees of the Week: Juan Vaquera, Aviation Airfield Maintenance Lead Airfield Striper and Robert “Martin” Garcia, Airfield Striper
Juan Vaquera and Robert “Martin” Garcia, employees in the Aviation Department are this week’s Employees of the Week.
The 10-Year Rental Car Concession Agreement at the Albuquerque International Sunport required a realignment of the rental return parking areas. In June Airfield Maintenance was requested to install 1,390 parking spaces at the Rental Car Facility.
The Sunport had an option to contract the work out, but Vaquera and Garcia stepped up to the plate and offered to do the work instead, saving the department about $10,000.
Vaquera and Garcia accepted the project and completed the installation of the parking spaces while maintaining the striping of the entire airfield. Vaquera has been an employee with the City of Albuquerque for six years and Garcia for over sixteen years.
“Through their efforts, these gentlemen have made it clear that they are dedicated employees who produce an exceptional work product,” said Mayor Berry.
