October 2018 Employee Spotlight - Gerald Ladner
written by Kenny Martin
I have known Gerald for more than 22 years, he is the type of person that will give you 110% at whatever he is asked to do. Gerald worked as a maintenance technician at Chateau Charmant Condo's for 16 plus years before I met him. His daily task at the Condo's was much the same as today, He was responsible for the daily maintenance for the 37 condo units on the property which included carpentry, electrical, painting, plumbing, HVAC etc before coming to Hancock Bank. Gerald was an employee of Hancock Bank for 18 years before hiring on at Labarre in 2014. The experience that Gerald has as a maintenance technician is very valuable to this Company. Gerald worked with Vearl Malley doing electrical work as his apprentice for 12 years. During this time Gerald also cross-trained picking up other skills such as carpentry, landscaping, painting, HVAC, ATM installation, plumbing, etc, but he enjoyed electrical work the most. He also loves a challenge, getting to troubleshoot an electrical or HVAC problem, finding it and fixing it is what Gerald likes doing. He his an all around great guy to work with and just fun to be around. Very self-driven to complete his daily tasks without someone having to stand over him. I think he is an asset to the Labarre facilities team. Away from work Gerald also likes saltwater fishing with his twin brother Darryl.
