AT NEXT LEVEL VALET, WE LIKE TO GET KNOW OUR EMPLOYEES AND ASSOCIATES SO THAT WE CAN WORK TOGETHER ON WHAT’S BEST FOR BOTH THE COMPANY AND THE INDIVIDUAL. AFTER ALL, IT’S THE EMPLOYEES THAT ARE WHAT MAKES THE COMPANY OPERATE ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS. HERE, WE HAVE INTERVIEWED ONE OF OUR MANAGERS, PAUL SUCHAN, WHO HAS PLAYED A PIVOTAL ROLE IN OUR AUSTIN OPERATIONS!
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF!
I am a Texan, born and raised in the Austin area. I was born in Austin, but grew up in Leander. Throughout my life, I’ve worked a lot of odd jobs, including working in a pastry kitchen, working at a marina on the lake, and night stocking at Target. The longest I’ve worked at a job was working at a rock climbing gym for nearly 5 years, where I found a passion for the sport. After attending high school at Leander High, I took a break from school for a while before going back to ACC to get an EMT degree. After training as an EMT for some time, I realized that I wanted to pursue a career that was less emotionally harrowing and that’s when I reached out to NLV for a job.
“…the growth potential seems to be nearly limitless, since the company itself is still growing and always expanding.”
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING IN YOUR SPARE TIME AND HOW DOES THIS FIT INTO YOUR WORK SCHEDULE?
In my spare time, I enjoy doing anything outdoors like hiking on the greenbelt, swimming at Barton Creek, and, of course, rock climbing. I also enjoy quiet time at home with my wife just watching a movie or reading a book. This all easily fits with my work schedule because I work evenings so I have most of the day to do the things I want to outdoors. Hopefully soon I’ll be taking my baby daughter, Skylar, with me on my adventures as well.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS?
I’m a simple guy that isn’t too wrapped up in material things like cars and clothes. I just want my family and I to be able to live comfortably while still doing the things we enjoy.
WHAT DOES SUCCESS MEAN TO YOU?
Success, to me, is being able to provide for yourself and your family, so that everyone is happy and healthy. Also, the feeling a sense of pride, satisfaction and enjoyment what you do is a part of being successful.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH THE COMPANY AND WHAT ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES AS A MANAGER?
I was hired in January of 2016, I’ve been with the company for a little over year. From the flexible hours to the restaurants that we serve, it’s been a great time so far. As a manager, I’m responsible for writing the schedules, making sure our accounts are stocked with supplies, entering payroll information, hiring, training and, of course, the normal valet work.
HOW HAS WORKING FOR NLV HELPED YOU TO REACH YOUR GOALS?
Working for NLV has helped me to reach some of my own personal financial goals and has been providing me with opportunities to reach all of my goals by promoting me up through the company, which has allowed me to be able to afford to start a family. Also, the growth potential seems to be nearly limitless, since the company itself is still growing and always expanding. The way I way I see it, as long as I keep working hard and giving NLV everything I have to offer, there’s no reason I can’t grow with the company and be able to provide my family with a great lifestyle.
