Employee Spotlight


Courtney Murray

Rising Star Track Loader Operator

“When I first started working for William A. Hazel Inc., everyone was so welcoming. My crew is easy to get along with and I believe that’s a reflection of the company’s culture. My favorite part about this industry is that I am constantly learning something new. I started as a Volvo operator and would occasionally run a roller or an 815. My supervisor encouraged me to start training on other equipment and in matter of months, I was able to move up to a track loader. I’ve learned a vast amount of knowledge in my time with Hazel and I wouldn’t have chosen any other place to start off my construction career.”

Employees Making a Difference

A Hazel employee in a red truck had his PPE on and moving debris/cut up trees out of the road and directing traffic. I was unable to get the truck number or a real description of the employee, but he was doing a damn good job keeping the traffic moving. His efforts saved me a long detour of heading back to Warrenton.

We're proud of our employee, Justin Southard, for stepping up to the task and living up to our Legacy of Dependability!

Roger Shirk is a one-of-a-kind man. In my time at Hazel and other companies, I have never met a better teacher, hard working individual, or company man like Roger. He is always thinking about his crew and takes care of us day in and day out. He is the definition of a man's man. I am grateful to have had such a great teacher who has given me the skills and strength I need to succeed

All of us who lead strive to have that kind of impact on those we lead. Thank You Roger for your great example of leadership.

When the top of a live sewer manhole was crushed by another contractor working on-site, filling the sewer lines with debris, sewer began to backup jeopardizing several businesses in the neighborhood. Robbie Hensley, Project Superintendent, took control of a very tense situation, organizing and coordinating the response that averted a major contamination issue.

Thank You Robbie for your quick action and cool head, making all the right calls to save the day for the neighborhood and our customer.

Lance Toone isn't just a nice guy to work for, but a very hard worker. I've watched him operate every piece of equipment on a daily basis including a Volve truck. I've heard guys complain Lance is working beyond the normal hours just to get the job done. The word exemplary is not even adequate in describing Lance because he goes above and beyond the call of duty. I think Lance is the greatest boss I've ever worked for.

Thank You Lance for leading by example every single day.
