Keep reading to learn more about one of the most distinguished foremen at Reliable Contracting.

Tom Wyatt’s Career at Reliable Contracting

Tom Wyatt, a prominent foreman at Reliable Contracting, has had a long and distinguished career with the company — over twenty years long, in fact. Tom began working for Reliable in 1981 as a general laborer, tending to the various duties required to keep a job site or project running smoothly and efficiently. While Tom left Reliable for a brief period, we happily hired him back to re-join our team in 1991.

In Tom’s Own Words

Q: “What would you say you like most about your job?” 

Tom: “[Reliable] always keeps you busy and working.”

Q: What is something you feel most individuals may not know about your job role? 

Tom: “It can be a headache at times. It’s not as easy as it looks. There’s a lot more to it than telling people what to do.”

Q: What do you feel are the best characteristics of your team? 

Tom: “My crew is like my family. They work very hard and they take pride in the work they put in.”

A Job Well Done

Tom’s role as Foreman comes with great responsibility of keeping his team safe, ensuring they return home to their families every night. This commitment to the safety of his team has earned Tom many recognitions and awards over the years. Tom’s work ethic and dedication to safety have been recognized both within the company and externally. In 2015 and 2016, he was nominated to receive the Contractors Safety Award from Maryland Transportation Builders and Materials Association. In 2017, he received company recognition and awarded Foreman of the Year for Paving Division and Overall. As just one individual of a small group of recipients, Tom also received a gold watch in 2016 for his 25th anniversary with Reliable.

Thank you, Tom, for your dedication to Reliable and the commitment to keeping your crew safe.
