Production Supervisor and Warehouse Manager
Herb has been a part of the Ravenswood family for more than 14 years. To say that he values dependability and loyalty is a massive understatement. He was born and raised on the south side of Chicago by parents who have been married for 43 years. He has 3 brothers and a sister who he describes as his best friends. He and his wife have been married for 15 years and he is the proud father of two teenagers. Each year he has been with us, he has embraced (in his words) “the energy and excitement of providing services” to our clients and each year he has done a little more to acquire the experience and skills necessary to become a leader. As Production Supervisor, Herb is responsible for coordinating production needs with our Event Managers. In addition to assigning daily tasks for the crew, he sees to the “little things” like making sure the trucks are properly packed and supplies are reordered on a timely basis. He is an expert at all things mechanical and is equally adept behind the wheel of a forklift as he is manipulating a cherry picker over a crowd of several thousand. Herb also manages our warehouse operations and knows where everything is.
Herb, who is known as “Coco” by those closest to him, enjoys spending quality time with his family and is an avid fan and participant of sports – especially basketball and boxing. One skill that he takes particular pride in is his ability to cut hair, which he enjoys providing, free of charge to friends and family.
