Associate Spotlight Award
At SOLID, we value our associates’ contributions and appreciate their impact on daily business operations. That’s why each month, we honor an associate who goes above and beyond. The March Associate Spotlight award recipient, Angel Gonzalez, positively impacts our company every day in his position as Operations Manager for SOLID’s Orlando facility.
Epitomizing SOLID Core Values
“Angel epitomizes all of SOLID’s core values, but he really stands out as exemplifying “Be Great” and “Be Expert,” says Corey May, SOLID VP, Strategic Accounts, who nominated Angel for the award. “He’s committed to developing expertise every day through hard work and getting the job done.”
“I am grateful to SOLID and to be a part of a team that includes so many talented people. I’m nothing without my team. They are the true warriors, the hardest workers, the smartest, most creative, and honest teammates I have ever worked with,” said Angel.
Hard Work and Commitment
Angel’s background shows his dedication to hard work and commitment. Growing up in Venezuela, at age 13, he was an international karate champion. At age 24, he immigrated to the US without knowing any English.
“Learning the language was undoubtedly one of the most difficult challenges of my life,” he said. Angel has a degree in computer engineering from one of the top 100 engineering universities globally and also earned a Bachelor of Arts degree.
“For life’s sake, I got to exercise both hemispheres of my brain. So much so that I was an algebra and calculus teacher for high school students and a creative art director at the same time.”
We’re happy that Angel’s life path led him to his career at SOLID. Angel lives in Orlando with his wife, Claudia, and their two-year-old son, Mateo.
