Long-time Cochise County resident Michael Baxter brings over a decade of custodial maintenance experience to the Premier Alliance team.
The son of educators, Michael graduated from Buena High School prior to serving a three-year stint in the Army, and worked at the youth center on Fort Huachuca for more than a decade before coming to Premier Alliances in July.
“I started as a seasonal employee doing weed-eating,” Michael said. His work as part of the groundskeeping crew ensured that the many open spaces of the military installation continued to look well-kept and presentable throughout the busy monsoon.
These days, Michael works as part of the team at the at the U.S. Border Patrol’s Brian Terry Station in Bisbee, where he and co-workers Anna Hiz and Jorge keep the facility spotless for the men and women who protect our nation’s borders.
It’s an environment that Michael is more than happy to work in, after the more excitable atmosphere of the youth center.
“I like the people that I work with and I like the quiet environment. I like Billy and the guys on the Fort as well. After coming from Fort Huachuca and the teenage environment for 12 years or so, I enjoy the quiet,” he said.
Another benefit is the chance to further expand his skill sets through learning new equipment.
“A lot of the equipment that Jorge is teaching me how to use, I’ve never used before, like the battery-operated buffer,” Michael said. “It’s nice to learn new things.”
Premier Alliances CEO Rachel Gray said, “Michael’s willingness to step in where and when needed is a great asset for Premier Alliances, Inc.”
Through his hard work and team-centric attitude, Michael has made Premier Alliances a better place for his fellow employees, as well as Premier’s clients. Thanks Michael!
