Employee Spotlight – PEDRO STEVENS

Nov 8, 2022 | Employee Spotlight, Employees

When asked to describe PESCO, without hesitation, Pedro Stevens responded, “Second chance.”

Originally from Albuquerque, the move to Farmington was a decision he and his wife felt would be in the best interest of their family and future. Pedro spent several years incarcerated and would repeatedly succumb to the temptation of drug addiction. The change of pace and location was one of the best decisions he ever made. It was only four days after his release from prison that Pedro began his career at PESCO. “It’s working out pretty well.”, he said with a smile.

Pedro has been with PESCO for four years. He started as a night shift pipefitter, he was promoted to paint and blast, earned certification as a paint and blast specialist, then moved to his current role as production specialist.

Pedro says he enjoys the constant movement here at PESCO.  There is always something changing, and it challenges him to adapt, to work with others and to reach the end goal. Pedro also appreciates being part of a team that consistently encourages him to grow.

When discussing the topic of leadership, Pedro expressed his view that a good leader is one who can rally their team and inspire them to think outside the box, enabling the team to move toward a common goal. Once people are inspired to go beyond their self-imposed limitations, they discover a new sense of confidence and pride. He noted that a second key trait of a leader is one who will jump in right alongside their team when help is needed. It’s Pedro’s goal to be this type of leader no matter what he is challenged with at PESCO, or in life.

Married 13 years, he and his wife Brittney have five kids: four boys and one girl. In his personal time, Pedro enjoys reading, church, fishing, watching his kids sports and his daughter’s cello performances.

Pedro has a great sense of humor and enjoys making people smile.  A couple of things few people know about him are his interest in world history and his love of Celtic music. One day he would like to travel to Ireland.

He has overcome the odds and has worked hard to build stability and security for his family. In the next five years, he sees himself continuing his PESCO career and sustaining the lifestyle he now enjoys.
