Name: Peter Natzke
Title: Commercial Project Manager
How long have you been with Pella? 1 year and 8 months
Tell us about your role at Pella. What is your job and what do you do?
My job is to manage the commercial projects over $100,000. We take over the job after shop drawings are approved and handle all aspects of the project from that point until completion. This includes scheduling deliveries by requested elevations, inventorying windows upon delivery, being present at mock up window installations, providing answers on a myriad of questions, and servicing the windows/doors after installation.
What is your favorite part about working for Pella? Why?
I really enjoy the daily interactions with fellow Pella employees. We have a great team at Pella Wisconsin and I can always count on the other departments to assist in making the commercial projects proceed to completion in a smooth and efficient manner.
If a customer asked you why you chose to work for Pella, what would you say?
Working for an industry leader that leads with service and quality and competitive pricing is always the best company to represent. However, after being here for 1 year and 8 months, I would say the work atmosphere, the togetherness of the employees and departments, and the company attitude would be my reasons for choosing to stay at Pella Wisconsin.
Name a project that you have worked on that you are the most proud of?
I am very proud of all of the commercial projects we have worked on but the River House Apartment project in Milwaukee and the Stone House Development in Madison have been two that stand out. Both had different obstacles that we have overcome and that effort has made those two special.
What do you like to do in your free time, especially during the summer months?
I enjoy being outside doing any activity. I like walk, golf, and travel. Fall is my favorite season as Packer and Badger football, crisp temperatures and fall colors make me very happy.
Anything else you want to add that you’d like to share about yourself?
I have two grown sons who work and live in the Madison area and both have expecting wives with babies due in August and October. I should soon have a granddaughter and a grandson to spoil.
