We Win With Our People

CHARLOTTE December 17, 2019

At IBCI, we’re proud of our team.

Our champions are on-call and working behind-the-scenes to keep all of us moving! Their knowledge and commitment helps us to deliver solutions, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, that our customers require and can count on. With hard work and dedication, to serving our customers, comes trust. Trust and camaraderie in the workplace are valuable assets.

For example, Rodney Sellers – our Charlotte Branch Operations Manager was asked to sport a Santa hat for a company photo shoot. A moment later he couldn’t help but grin at Dan Makowski – our North Charlotte Territory Manager and Dave Sluis – our South Charlotte Territory Manager as they had a little fun with ole’ Saint Nick’s headgear. That’s what colleagues do for one another.

We remain true to our roots and believe that hard work is the best way to succeed. We’re honored to say that ‘We Win With Our People’.
