|We are so excited to share some of the awesome presenters for NWiR Day 2021:
“Roofing is… Recruiting Interns” with Christee Holbrook
Do you need help? This session is designed to provide tips for hiring and managing interns. Sure, it’s nice to help a high school or college student, but interns can also help your business. An intern can bring fresh ideas at low cost. Plus, you get the opportunity to help someone else learn how to be a great employee and learn a new skill!
Christee Holbrook is majority owner of Graham Roofing Incorporated in West Point, MS. She has built and maintains important relationships with customers, vendors, contractors and community leaders while overseeing the day to day operations of the company. She sets goals for the company, reviews all the financial records and routinely visits jobsites to see that the company’s values, work ethic and work quality are being upheld on construction projects.
Holbrook takes pride that her most significant professional accomplishment came when the last original owner of Graham Roofing retired, handed off the reins of the company and professed his faith that she and her partners were the ones to take the 50 year old roofing company to greater heights.
Holbrook graduated Cum Laude from Mississippi University for Women in 1995 with an accounting degree. In 2014 she was named Safety Professional of the Year by Mississippi Associated Builders and Contractors. She is also a 2017 Golden Triangle Leadership graduate, a 2018 recipient of MS Business Journals’ 50 Leading Business Women and a graduate of Mississippi Economic Council’s Leadership Mississippi class of 2019. She also currently serves on MS State University Building Construction and Science program’s Industry Advisory Board as chair, Lowndes County Career Technical Center’s Construction Advisory Committee, founding board member for the FORGE Foundation, GTR LINK’s Trust Board of Directors, the MS ABC Safety Committee chair, National Women in Roofing’s (NWIR) Board of Directors as the Chair of the Membership Committee and The Growth Alliance board.
