For the first time since its establishment in 2015, two employees have been recognized with the Fred Shaw Employee of the Year award. Both Dixie Bassuener (Western Region) and Chase Brown (North Central Region) exemplify the company’s commitment to Building Better Lives and our core values of Integrity and PRIDE (Professionalism, Respect, Ingenuity, Determination and Excellence). The whole Shaw-Lundquist team salutes Dixie and Chase.
Dixie Bassuener – Construction Accountant, Western Region
Dixie Bassuener, a long-time Shaw-Lundquist team member in the Las Vegas office is universally agreed to be the perfect recipient of the first Fred Shaw award dedicated to the company’s Western Region. She works hard to demonstrate her commitment to the company, clients and trade partners by always going the extra mile. Her professionalism has been recognized throughout the organization and beyond. She notes, “I’m honored to have received the first Fred Shaw Award in Las Vegas. I’m grateful that my colleagues appreciate my work and that they look to me as an example of Integrity and PRIDE.”.
Holden Hsiao, Vice President and General Manager of the Western Region goes a step further, “Dixie is a hard-working individual who demonstrates our core values exceptionally well. I’m very pleased she is the first recipient of the Fred Shaw award for the West Region office, it is well deserved!”
Chase Brown – Superintendent, North Central Region
Chase is proud to represent Shaw-Lundquist field team members as this year’s North Central Fred Shaw Award winner. He hopes his recognition will motivate other field team members. Chase credits the company’s culture for instilling Integrity and PRIDE in his work. He strives to be up-front, genuine and trustworthy in all of his interactions with clients, trade partners and co-workers. He commented that, “It’s hard to truly build a team in the field when you have 200+ people coming together to build a $10 million project in 8 weeks. I do my best to create a trusting bond with our partners and lead by example.”
Hoyt Hsiao, Shaw-Lundquist CEO notes, “Chase lives and demonstrates our purpose of building better lives and our values of Integrity & PRIDE. The well-earned recognition comes from Chase’s co-workers who nominated him for this honor. Chase earned this honor through the passion he brings every day to what he does!”
