When you are first hired at Soligent, one of the very first people you are told to talk to is Laura Brozzo. “She knows everything,” people gushed. And it’s true. Laura, a Customer Finance Representative has worked at Soligent for more than 10 years and her expertise and kindness has touched every department to make us better and stronger.
When you ask Laura about herself, she usually redirects the conversation to her daughter Kristine. The pride and love just shines right out of her. As I dug a little deeper I learned a few new things. Such as, Laura is a crabber. When I mistakenly called her a fisherman, she quickly corrected me and then told me the differences in what makes those two hobbies vastly different. I got schooled. Also, Laura knows a whole heck of a lot about cars. Having worked in the automotive industry before coming to Soligent, she often bonds with our installers over a mutual love of what’s under the hood of a good vehicle. The last fascinating fact that I will share with you is that Laura and her husband are garlic enthusiasts. Don’t believe me? Ask Laura about the different varieties of garlic you can grow and how different they taste. I dare you. She knows it all. As you read through the questions she answered below you’ll learn a little more about this amazing person and we are so lucky to have her as a member of the Soligent family.
