1st Choice Roofing Operations Officer, Mandy McIntyre, grew up working in her dad’s contracting business, and she’s been paving the way for women in roofing to have more opportunities.
With Women History Month starting today we wanted to spotlight, Mandy McIntyre our Operations Officer shared her early beginnings in the roofing industry with the National Women in Roofing (NWIR) which is a volunteer-based organization that supports and advances the careers of women roofing professionals.
Mandy began her adult career in roofing at 1st Choice Roofing Co. as a Project Coordinator, fast forward today Mandy is our Operations Officer. In the nearly eight years Mandy McIntyre has been at 1st Choice Roofing, they have almost tripled the amount of employees in-house and on the field.
Over the years, Mandy has become a respected figure in the roofing industry by empowering women to continue the path. Mandy wasn’t new to construction, she often visited job sites as a child with her father, who was a General Contractor and even helped in the office.
“I guess it’s in my blood to be around construction. I think when I got into roofing it ignited a spark that was dormant for many years,” Mandy said.
Not only has she been an integral part of the success at 1st Choice Roofing, earlier this year she began her journey to get certified in the eCornell Diversity & Inclusion course. Diversity and Inclusion is a passion of Mandy’s and she has spearheaded a new program Minority Occupational Recruitment & Education (M.O.R.E.) for diversity and inclusion.
“It’s more than a Diversity and Inclusion initiative, it’s the catalyst for change and opportunity within our company and community,” Mandy said
