The Workplace

Introduction

Brunel puts people at the center of everything we do. Our “Passion for People” motto is one of the core values that drives each of our decisions as a business and each of our interactions with our clients, contractors, and candidates. A major part of our commitment to Passion for People is our Contractor Care team, whose role is to make sure our contractors are represented and heard at every point of the process. We are excited to share news of 2 new arrivals to the Brunel Americas Contractor Care team in our Houston office: Account Coordinators Abbi DeBeck and Katie Rossmann.

Meet Katie Rossmann

Katie was born and raised in Saint Louis and relocated to Houston after finishing her Integrated Marketing Communications degree at Ole Miss. Katie initially chose a career in Marketing and Graphic Design but realized that she was a better fit for a role like Account Coordinator that allows her to get from behind her desk, meet people, and help take care of their needs. A gymnast for much of her life, Katie still coaches kids’ gymnastics and is a favorite for her dedication and her humor.

Being a Brunel Account Coordinator

At Brunel, Account Coordinators live by our core values of Entrepreneurship, Integrity, a Results-Driven Mindset, and Passion for People. Account Coordinators function as a liaison between contractors, Brunel, and our clients. It is their responsibility to ensure that our contractors have everything they need to perform to the best of their abilities and know that they are valued by both Brunel and the clients responsible for their projects.

 

Abbi described her duties as an Account Coordinator saying “it’s all about communicating with our contractors and making sure they have everything they need every day. It’s important to build relationships with them, find them the correct answers for all their questions.”

 

Katie spoke on the importance of the Account Coordinator role adding “you have to have your finger in a lot of pots. You have to help make sure the contractor’s point of view is seen throughout the process and to do that you have to have a relationship with them where you truly understand their needs.”

Why Brunel?

Both Abbi and Katie decided to join Brunel because they saw an opportunity for growth and development as they look to reshape their careers. After interviewing for the position and researching Brunel, Katie wanted to seize the opportunity to be a part of a culture that would enable her to learn and grow and to be truly empowered in her work. Abbi, a mother of 2, decided to take a major step up the career ladder by moving on from her previous role at a local Speech and Occupational Therapy partially to inspire her daughters. Abbi said “I wanted to prove to my girls that they can do anything they put their mind to, that they can work their way up and keep climbing with the right work ethic.”
