Employee Spotlight: Josh Lemasters

Here we are again, sitting down with one of our team members to learn more about
them. We love learning about our team! This month we are talking to Josh Lemasters, a
sales consultant for our Outlet location. Josh has been with the company for over 3
years now. We sat down and gave Josh our usual “spotlight” questions and here is what
we learned…

VanDevere: Hi Josh, thank you for taking the time to sit with us. We will start off easy…
What is the best thing about your job?
Josh: I never dread coming to work

VDV: It is truly a blessing to find work that does not quite feel like work. We are just here to help
customers, the Akron community and have fun with the team! What is the best thing about
Josh: They actively care about their employees.

VDV: I agree. Everyone asks how they are and how they can help. The VanDevere team just
wants each individual to feel welcomed and that they have the opportunity to grow here. In
three words, how would you best describe VanDevere?

Josh: Honest, Helpful and Fair

VDV: All great ways to describe the character of the company. What do you like to do
when you are not at work?

Josh: video games, hiking, hanging out with friends and girlfriend. I also enjoy going to music
festivals when they are in town.
VDV: All great activities! Music Festivals are great ways to have fun with friends and family.
What inspires you?

Josh: Being able to buy a nice place someday and have enough money to support my family
VDV: It’s a goal I think we all mutually share and strive for. Our families are so important
and want to be sure that they live the best possible life. Fill in the blank… I once met….
Josh: Willie Nelson!

VDV: How fun! Seeing him in concert would be a great time. That could be one of your
next festival trips! Speaking of travel, where is your favorite place to go?

Josh: Anywhere a cruise can take me!
VDV: I have never been on a cruise! I have always heard they are a great time and a
perfect way to see different parts of the world in a short period of time. Now, do you
have a favorite place to eat?
Josh: Toko! It is a sushi spot in Kent.

VDV: I love sushi! I will have to try that one out. There are a lot of great places to go in
Akron as well. Do you have a dream car?
Josh: I would like to drive a 2024 Chevy Trax

VDV: Awesome vehicle! Good thing VanDevere has a Chevy store to purchase your
dream car at! A big thank you to you, Josh, for taking the time to talk with us today. We
appreciate your hard work over the past 3 years of employment with The Vandevere
