Q: Give us an example of a business challenge your organization faced, as well as how you overcame it.
All successful businesses face challenges. As a seasonal company, we are especially challenged with conducting the bulk of our services during a short, five-month period. We overcome this by implementing a focused budget plan and executing an organized marketing strategy.
Q: In what ways are you an innovative leader, and how does your organization employ innovation to be on the leading edge?
As the leading aquatic firm in Ohio, AQUA DOC utilizes a unique application method. This technique provides positive results as well as being time efficient and cost effective. This exclusive business practice is passed along to our licensed staff so that we can better serve our customers.
Q: What is the greatest lesson you’ve learned and how have you applied it?
Woody Hayes once said, “You win with people.” Education and knowledge is vital to sustainable success. We have developed our own institution of higher learning, AQUA DOC University. Throughout the off-season, we focus on teaching new concepts and revisiting old ideas to ensure that our employees are accomplished in all skill areas. This knowledge and professionalism is then passed on to our customers.
Q: How does your organization make a significant impact on the community and regional economy?
AQUA DOC is dedicated to beautifying Ohio’s freshwater resources in our local community as well as the surrounding region. We provide aquatic solutions to residential and commercial customers, local governments, and state parks. Healthy aquatic ecosystems are a significant resource for recreational and community use, providing functional beauty for all.
