A member of the Emser family for an impressive 20 years, Julio Pozo’s Emser career is marked by exciting growth. Beginning as a return associate in a local Emser warehouse, he now manages our Western Distribution Center operations out of Ontario, California.
Our associates each contribute to the uniqueness of the Emser story, and Julio’s own is no exception. In our new blog series highlighting our associates, Julio shares why he enjoys mentoring team members, and, in his free time, restoring his 1963 pickup truck.
What do you like most about working for Emser Tile?
At Emser, it feels like I am working with family. I like that no matter what the situation is, I can count on support.
What work accomplishments are you most proud of?
I am most proud of coming from a 50,000-square-foot building working as a return associate to now operating one of the largest facilities of the company. I also had the honor of helping to open our new Florida Distribution Center - providing my expertise and sharing our company culture with new associates.
What aspects of your job do you love most?
I have the opportunity to mentor my team members and watch them succeed and grow within the company. I also enjoy the autonomy Emser gives me to make improvements and to lead many initiatives regarding the operations throughout all four distribution centers.
What do you do when you are not working?
When not at work, I like to spend time with my family and work on my 1963 F-100 pickup truck that I am currently restoring. I also like to camp at the dunes and take my family on rides with our Razor.
Anything else you would like to share?
I would like to share a little about my hero, my father, Hector Pozo. My father had such a difficult life in my native country of Cuba. He fought so hard and never went against his beliefs - gaining a new purpose to give his sons an opportunity for a better life. My work ethic has always been to work hard and put my heart into everything I do in appreciation for him. I want him to know that all his efforts are the reason I am who I am today. I am so thankful for him for getting us to this country and to Emser for helping me accomplish what my father worked so hard for - “a better life with endless opportunities.”
