We are proud of our history at Otter Creek Awnings and excited to celebrate our 40th year in 2016. Our company has built its reputation over the years for quality products and service, but we know that the secret to our success is our people. Rene Paquette, Vice President of Production, will celebrate 35 years with the company this year and his expertise with every aspect of awnings from manufacturing to installation is the best in the business. Over the years Rene has designed, sold, installed, and even sewed awnings along with training and managing his crews. His expertise is beyond compare and he exemplifies all that we value at Otter Creek. When Rene is not at The Creek he enjoys time in the great outdoors; skiing and hunting among other things. Rene also spends lots of time with his large family (he and his wife Salena have five grown children, and four grandchildren). Two of his children, Adam Paquette and Heather Paquette, work for Otter Creek Awnings and our sister company Vermont Custom Closets. Adam and Heather take after their father with a strong work ethic and talent for great customer service.
So this year, as we celebrate a big milestone in our company, we also recognize Rene and all that he has brought to our company over the years. Cheers to him and to Otter Creek Awnings for continued success!
