KNF&T Staffing Resources is pleased to announce that Leroy Davis has been named the 2nd quarter winner of KNF&T’s 2018 Staffing Employee of the Year contest.
Leroy is an opera singer who studied at Bard College and the New England Conservatory. He has been in a variety of performances over the years and, in his downtime, he has made a habit of coming to KNF&T for contract work. We first met him in 2011 when a friend recommended that Leroy work with KNF&T for a summer job.
“I had interests outside of music and really wanted to explore those. KNF&T is a safe place to explore those and discover something that I didn’t know I was passionate about,” stated Leroy.
Most recently, he completed a role working as an Administrative Assistant for a nonprofit company for the last few months while he took part in a July performance. He did such a fantastic job that the client said they’d love to have him back in the fall, when he becomes available again.
“One of the things I’ve really liked is that all the jobs have been varied and interesting. I believe the measure of a great job is if the people are wonderful, and its equal parts rewarding and challenging – every job has provided a little bit of each.”
Leroy’s staffing consultant, Jillian, remarks: “Leroy is completely reliable and consistently receives rave reviews wherever he works. He is incredibly flexible – no assignment is ever too big or too small for him. Plus, he is highly communicative and always prioritizes our client’s needs. We are thrilled he has been named the second quarter staffing employee of the year!”
Leroy graduated from the Mannes College of Music in 2013 and earned his Master’s degree at Bard College. He was a regional finalist in the Metropolitan Opera’s National Competition in 2015. He is currently an Apprentice Artist at the Chautauqua Opera, singing Maximillian in Candide and covering the title role of Don Giovanni.
