Foreman Focus Friday: Dan Composano

Jun 10, 2016 | Foreman Focus Friday


This month we are recognizing another one of our Sheet Metal Superstars, the talented Dan Composano!

Dan was born on the Jersey Shore but has lived in the Emerald City since the age of three. A storybook romance, he married his high school sweet heart and childhood best friend, Brenda, and they have two children together, son Coby and daughter Kayla. Dan joined Hermanson in 2002 after finishing his Sheet Metal Apprenticeship and has been with us ever since. We can tell that Dan’s passion and motivation for his job is felt by his family since his 20-year old son works in the industry for MacDonald Miller and his 18-year old daughter plans on joining the union at the end of this summer!

Dan enjoys the interactions and teamwork required to develop practical yet efficient solutions to project challenges that arise. He also likes that Hermanson management is dedicated to making sure that the entire team is working together effectively and and that the trades collaborate to make a better project. Dan has been a part of several of Hermanson’s most complex installations including Providence Hospital Cymbaluk (Colby Campus) Tower. He also spent the last two years working on large office improvements for our biggest Tech Client where he appreciates the challenge of completing sizable renovations within short turnaround times.

Dan values his crew and ensures they are happy and motivated. He listens to feedback and suggestions and always looks for ways to grow and improve as a professional in his trade. He remains open-minded towards others and has stated that not only has he learned things from other Foreman / Superintendents he has also learned from first year apprentices.

His advice to others is that you have to give respect to get respect. An employee who respects his / her leadership team will strive to always give us their best.

Well said!

An ambitious person, Dan is always striving to reach new heights. From this picture of an early morning hike on Mt. Pilchuk, it appears that this holds true in his free time as well! Whoa!
