Congratulations to Our First Ever Leadership Polk Graduating Class

Polk Mechanical is proud to announce the graduation of the inaugural class of the LEADERSHIPOLK program. 10 of our best and brightest employees were selected for a year-long program aimed at identifying and motivating potential company leaders from all areas of our business. The program opened a dialogue among emerging and current company leaders and challenged participants to apply their talents throughout the company.

Participants were chosen from all areas of the company: Commercial, Industrial, Service, DFW, Houston, Operations, and Support. These 10 employees were selected because they have demonstrated a capacity for leadership, live the Polk values, do their day job with excellence and are consummate company promoters both internally and externally.


The Leadership Polk program consisted of seven sessions in the form of lectures, discussion groups, field trips, simulations, and other leadership development activities.
