Meet Rebecca Whitton!
She’s the first of many employees we’ll be chatting with this year. Catch up on all of them in our monthly feature – Spotlight Saturday!
Full name: Rebecca Whitton
Job Title: Production Planning Manager
Years at AGS: 7 years
Why do you like being part of AGS?
I enjoy working for smaller companies because you aren’t just a number the way massive corporations make you feel. At AGS, we get to be creative and we get to watch beautiful things get built right before your eyes! It’s a niche industry but I think that’s what I like most about it.
What is a project that you’re currently working on that excites you?
We are wrapping up CHOP’s new hospital in King of Prussia. CHOP is close to my heart because they saved my sister’s life when she was an infant. To be a part of their first hospital outside of Philadelphia, is truly incredible. They are top notch in everything that they do so it’s special to be a small piece of this exciting new addition to our area.
Give us a little bit of background about yourself. What brought you to where you are now in your career at AGS?
I started out as the Project Management Assistant and overtime I just started to learn more and more about what we do and really felt invested in what we do. With each passing year, I was eager to learn as much as I could, which gave me the opportunities for growth over the years.
If you could meet anyone living or dead, who would it be?
Any of the founding fathers. American Revolutionary History is a huge interest of mine! I was originally going to West Chester University to major in American Revolutionary History!
If you won the lottery, what’s the first thing you would buy?
The first thing I would likely do is pay off my mom’s house.
What’s been your favorite project to work on so far?
One of my absolute favorite projects we ever did was a Donor project for the Franklin Institute. I remember the day we won the project, the team was concerned about the complexity. But I thought the design was brilliant. They are long aluminum antique looking keys with the donor names attached that hang over the archway to the Ben Franklin statue inside the entrance. It looks BEAUTIFUL!
