Colleagues and supervisors describe Newman Forrester as “willing and helpful.” Those positive comments garnered him recognition by Staff Council in November as an Employee of the Month. Forrester is a member of the Facilities Management team based on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
Facilities Management Director Mike Boroviak described Forrester as an employee who “has always gone the extra mile and consistently works to the benefit of the university and the customers. Newman serves as the Building 500 and the new Pharmacy Building Supervisor and new projects representative. He has notable customer service and technical skills with consistent compliments from his peers and management.”
In nominating Forrester, Facilities Manager Vimol Mitchell wrote, “He has a great attitude toward his work and can motivate his team in completing their assigned tasks in a timely manner. Newman is a highly motivated and natural leader, with a positive can-do attitude. A superb multi-tasker, he is often assigned multiple time-critical assignments, completing each task in a timely manner. Newman Forrester is the embodiment of what a PMT should be.”
Susan Saunders in the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences recommended Forrester for the award based on his performance in support of the construction of the Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Building.
“I have observed his dedication to the role of liaison between Facilities Operations, the School of Pharmacy and the contractor. He brings requests from Facilities Operations to the table with careful consideration of the factors of safety, energy conservation, ease of maintenance, etc., while keeping in mind the budget and schedule of the project. As the primary person to differentiate between warranty items and regular service calls, he has handled our occupation of the new space well, avoiding delays in resolution of problems.”
