In this week’s blog entry, we wanted to help everyone get a little familiar with some of the amazing staff we have here at LGCY Power. In this installment of our employee spotlight, we’re proud to introduce you to Damian Peterson, the VP of Sales Operations.
Damian has been with LGCY since nearly day one. Coming on in September of 2014, he was employee #2 and has witnessed considerable amounts of growth while being with the company. He graduated from Utah State University with a major in finance and a minor in economics.
Q: What is a typical day at the office?
A: I stay busy with meetings and correlation. I am over a number of departments and stay in constant contact with various managers and department heads. I also coordinate all the sales podcasts and media, so I work very close with marketing. Between managing staff and getting the stuff done that I need to, there’s also always some big project going on. I also work close with the tech side because a lot of our competitions and projects are done by the tech team. It keeps me busy and lets me work with a lot of people, which are both things I love.
Q: What motivates you?
A: There’s a hashtag Doug Robinson [founder of LGCY Power] uses on social media a lot, and it’s #BuildingIsEnergizing. Being in the company since the ground stages, I’ve helped build a lot of things. We’ve grown exponentially since, and we’re continuing to grow and that’s what motivates me. If you look at the company now compared to what it was two years ago when I started, we’ve come a long way.
Q: What is your biggest accomplishment since working at LGCY?
A: I would say development as a person. When I came on, I’d sold door-to-door for five years. During that, I graduated in Finance with a minor in Economics. I started, and I initially was doing reporting and other finance things, and then I started to get some staff underneath me. Then I took on competitions, then events, and so on. Every time I’ve taken something on, it’s been an opportunity for me to grow and to learn to branch out. In the culture of LGCY, becoming the best version of yourself is what everyone pushes for, and LGCY has helped me get on the right path to becoming the best version of myself. We’re still a start-up, and there’s so much to do, but when you get in your hand in everything, you see so much growth.
Q: Who is your hero?
A: I’d say my mom. My family has gone through some trials recently, and she’s been a champ through the whole thing. She’s always been there for my brothers and I, as well as my sister. How she finds the time to work all the hours she works and still find time for all of us in the family is unreal. She gets a lot of stuff done, and it’s awesome.
Q: What is the last book you read?
A: Above the Line by Urban Meyer. Great book. I recommend it.
Q: What are some of your hobbies?
A: I like to go outdoors and boating. I also used to coach crossfit at a gym. My wife and I like to travel and go to concerts, but mostly it’s just going outside. I hate the wintertime. In the wintertime, I just coup myself up and work.
