At Metro, we’re all about team work. We pride ourselves on using everyone’s skills, expertise and experience to give our clients the best possible roofing solutions, while maintaining a healthy and fun environment for all our employees. We love telling you more about the people behind the hard work that happens.
Eugene is one of our top team leaders and a mentor to all the guys.
This hard working, reliable man has been in the industry for over 25 years and we have been fortunate to have had him as part of the Metro team for eight years now. Hard work runs in the family as his son, Gerswhin, is also moving up in the business as a Team Leader. He is highly skilled in all aspects of roof covering and has a great eye for detail (slate, tiles, metal sheeting, etc.). Being the well-mannered, task and goal orientated guy that he is – he is loved by all of his colleagues, clients and friends.
When Eugene is not spending time at work, he is usually spending quality time with his family – he’s been married to his wife for twenty years, and is the proud father of two kids and one grandchild. He enjoys playing darts and watching football, and is a big fan of Liverpool, especially Daniel Sturridge!
We look forward to seeing Eugene develop his expertise even further in the years to come and for our younger team members to learn as much from him as they can. Thank you for all your hard work, dedication and for being such a great example!
Silas is a husband, a father to his young daughter, Nicole, an avid Chelsea fan and one of our team leaders.
We’re lucky to have had Silas as part of the team since 2009, which means he’s been working with Metro for about eleven years. Silas was introduced to the company by his cousin, Joseph, and since starting as a labourer, he has progressed to second-in-charge and now a team leader.
Silas started his journey long ago with thatching work in Botswana. This has made him an invaluable asset in terms of experience and a key mentor to all the other Metro team members. It’s his experience and family history that helped developed his love for the roofing industry.
To this day, his favourite memory at Metro remains the moment he completed his first job as a team leader in Parry Road, Tygerberg. “The roofing job was finished on time and it’s a great feeling to realise that hard work truly pays off”, said Silas.
We consider Silas, with his eager learning attitude and permanent smile, a pinnacle part of the Metro team. We appreciate that he’s always asking questions and that he constantly strives to make Metro a better place for all his colleagues and clients!
