MILITARY SERVICE MEMBER SPOTLIGHTS

Employee Cathy Paquette
LDRSHIP is an acronym for the seven basic values of the US Army: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless-Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. I have been blessed to have used these values while serving my country and during my 28 years at Ecolab. In my opinion, these are more than just words, they are a code to live by. Hooah!

Whether helping solve customer problems or developing new Ecolab Reps, I find myself using the leadership skills, personal discipline, and initiative learned early in my military career. To be successful in technical sales, you need to have integrity, be accountable, and work in teams – all traits directly transferred from my 21 years serving in the military.
