He’s a jack of all trades, wearer of many hats, and resident self-proclaimed “Foam Ambassador,” and if you’ve worked with Fresh Foam much at all, it is likely that you’ve had at least one experience with Korey Lowe. He’s been at Fresh Foam for nearly two years and says he loves working for a company that is honest, knowledgeable, spreading truth, and helping where they can to make a little bit of difference.
Korey’s time with Fresh Foam stems from his friendship with Michael Vennitti. They have been friends since they were young kids and what started out as a favor for his friend turned into a full-time thing. Korey has a degree in Math and was working with another company when Fresh Foam got into a bit of a bind. Michael was having knee issues, another person was having eye problems, and a third person in the company was having heart surgery. They needed help and they needed it fast. That’s where Korey came in.
He jumped in to help out his long-time friend and now helps do a little bit of everything. He helps brainstorm ideas, trouble shoot equipment, assists with sales and treatments, tackles estimates and pricing, and handles much of the scheduling. His favorite part of the job is getting to meet new people and seeing lots of new things. He enjoys the challenge of working with a variety of personalities.
One of Korey’s most memorable moments on the job is when Harry Bagot was explaining to him that he should be careful around trash chutes because sometimes things just fly right down the chutes and explode. Harry had no more than gotten the words out of his mouth when a garbage bag full of rotten, shredded chicken flew down the chute and exploded leaving Harry covered in the mess.
Korey says that his job is about more than just trash. He feels like Fresh Foam is really making an impact. “People are very receptive because it keeps things cleaner, smelling better, and healthier,” says Korey. The company is also spreading truth about the work they do, especially when it comes to disinfecting treatments. He explained that they are turning away disinfecting jobs if it has been more than 7 days since anyone has been sick inside the building because it isn’t necessary according to CDC guidelines. Although Fresh Foam could take advantage of people’s fears and lack of knowledge, it’s just not right, so it’s not something they choose to do, explained Korey.
When Korey is away from the job he enjoys putting his focus on personal fitness (he likes to run a lot), playing the piano, and listening to music. He’s also a big family guy who says that family is really important to him.
