Here’s another Employee Spotlight interview: Cade Pearson – Chief Estimator
When did you start your Dicon career? November 2012.
What do you do – in your own words? I oversee all estimates and budgets for the company.
Favorite part of working here? We have a great culture of talented and hardworking individuals that also know how to enjoy life.
Are you originally from Omaha? If not, how did you end up here and why did you stay? Not originally from Omaha. My wife, who is an Omaha native likes to say that I am the one that drug her back to Omaha. We have stayed because Omaha is a great place to live and seems to have a group for every interest.
Do you have any hobbies? Current hobbies are any type of endurance sporting events especially ultra marathons.
What’s your favorite local restaurant? I am recently addicted to the Localmotive food truck. Great locally sourced ingredients out of a greasy restaurant on wheels. What could be better?
Who’s your team (ie: baseball/football)? Oklahoma State Cowboys – hope to see the baseball team make it back to Omaha this year.
How do you like to spend your free time? I don’t really have free time because I am always swimming, biking, or running. Sometimes I feel like Forrest Gump. When I do get away, I really enjoy fishing. Seems to be a sad pattern here!
Tell us about your family? We have a huge family. My wife Molly. Dogs – Tuff, Logan, Madeline, D’Weasel. Cats – Smooties, Truman, Brownie, Mittens. Horses – Ibn, Smurf, and Isenhauer.
If you could have ONE superpower – what would it be and why? I would love to be able to bust through walls like they were not there. Why – to get to the other side!
Thanks for sharing Cade!
