Brumark’s Shameka Howell Recognized as Exploring, Inc. Employee of The Year

Exploring, Inc., the parent
company of several rapidly growing Atlanta-based companies, has named Shameka
Howell its 2017 Employee of the Year. This annual recognition is part of
Exploring’s Employee Awards program, which was created to acknowledge and honor
talented employees who go above and beyond in their roles.

Howell serves as Director of Operations in Exploring’s
Brumark Total Flooring Solutions division, which has been supporting the
exhibit and event industry with high-quality flooring for 35 years. Howell
oversees all the different aspects of production and operations for Brumark’s
Atlanta and Dalton facilities, including but not limited to custom fabrication,
estimating, process improvement, inventory control and vendor relations. She
directs the entire Production team as well as the Account Management team to
ensure the highest quality standards from the very initial point of estimating
and bidding to the final point of fabrication and installation.

Howell is a veteran of the United States Army and a natural
proponent for high standards, discipline, structure and compassion, all of
which are a part of her management style. She joined Brumark in 2013 as a
Project Manager and has served as Project Management Team Lead, Client Services
Manager, and Director of Account Management prior to taking on her current role
as Director of Operations in July 2017. Howell has an Associate of Science in
Business Administration from Georgia Perimeter College, courtesy of the EDPA
Foundation Scholarship she was awarded in 2013, and is currently pursuing a
Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice at Georgia State University in
Atlanta, GA.

“Shameka’s commitment to her work and to ensuring that
Brumark serves clients with excellence shines through in everything she does,”
says David Walens, president of Exploring. “Her dedication and strong
leadership skills are integral to the success not only of Brumark, but to the
Exploring family of companies as a whole. This award is well-deserved, and we
sincerely appreciate all that Shameka does for our clients and our company.”
