Where Are They Now? MERIT's first Field Employee of the Year Award winner & longtime MERIT Member, Ron Boschetti
In 2012, the first MERIT Awards Ceremony was held. Ron Boschetti , who was employed with Thorpe Brothers at the time, won the first MERIT Field Employee of the Year Award. This award goes to an employee that is a skilled and dedicated worker, an outstanding leader on the job site, and a safety advocate. Ron was nominated by his employer, David Thorpe. When asked how Ron felt winning the award, he remembers feeling surprised as there were many great candidates who were also nominated.
So, where is Ron now?!
In 2017, Clark Roofing opened a new location in Prince Albert and Ron accepted the position of Branch Manager. This was a big and exciting step for Ron to take in his career as it presented new responsibilities and challenges. Ron has also been an active member on several boards throughout his career. In 2018, he contributed to reviving the Roofing Apprentice Program with the Saskatchewan Apprentice Board which was shutdown for 8 years. Ron enjoys working with young people who are new in the trade, showing them the benefits, and encouraging them to stick with it.
So, how did Ron get to where he is today?

This year marks Ron's 30th year in the trade. Ron began roofing in 1989 and joined Thorpe Brothers in 1996 when he moved to Prince Albert. In 2009, Ron transitioned from the field to a Project Manager and Estimator role. Although Ron genuinely enjoyed working in the field, he felt it was time to expand his interests and learn a new aspect of the trade. Moving from the field to office rounded off Ron's knowledge of the trade. "The second you step into the office, you get to see projects before and after what you do in the field."
Congratulations Ron for 30 years in the roofing trade! MERIT is proud to have had you as a member for so many of those years.
