Marketing Database Coordinator Cassie Conte recently joined Sundt after spending five years with a Scottsdale-based contractor.
She moved to Arizona in 2011 after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Southern Oregon University. An Oregon native, coming to Arizona was a big change for Cassie, however, she was ready to “chase the sunshine and bigger opportunities.”
What was it about Sundt that attracted you to work here?
I was attracted to Sundt because of its overall reputation and stability, passion for giving back to the community, dedication to safety, and of course, the ESOP. The people are super nice and very welcoming.
What will you be doing in your new job?
I am working in the Marketing Department supporting internal and external communications. I have a strong passion for the industry so I am excited to form a great relationship with Sundt and the employees. I am eager to represent Sundt as we/I strive for more success.
Why did you want to join the construction industry?
My father has always worked in construction, so it is something I have been around. Breaking into the industry, I quickly learned how fast-paced and competitive it was. Working in the Marketing Department calls for strict deadlines, strong attention to detail and a passion that thrives within me. I don’t know if I would ever be able to leave this industry.
What would you be doing if you weren’t in construction?
I think that if I weren’t in construction I would be doing real estate or running a wedding/events venue. I love people and events, so I have no doubt that I would be nestled somewhere in these two … or maybe even both!
If you could have only one cuisine for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I would say Italian. My family and I are Italian so there is just something about authentic home-cooked Italian food!
Where would you go on your dream vacation?
Italy! I have never been but I would love to go and learn more about my heritage.
