New Year, New Perspectives: Andrew Hawkins

To kick off 2024, we’re introducing you to several of our newest employees, and we’d like to introduce you to Andrew Hawkins! Andrew is a financial analyst for our Flooring Products business.

What brought you to L&P?

I was interested in joining a company with a lot of growth potential. When I saw the ad for a financial analyst at a such a large company, I knew that I would be able to learn a lot and strengthen my skills. After doing the in-person interview, I immediately felt that L&P was the right place.

What are you enjoying about your role so far?

I am really enjoying getting to know the business and working with people in different departments. Since I’ve been here, I’ve had the opportunity to tour a few locations and work with people in finance, sales, and operations management.

What’s something unique about you?

I can quote just about any Will Ferrell movie. My favorite movies of his are Step Brothers, The Other Guys, and Talladega Nights.

Have you set any personal or professional goals for yourself?

A personal and professional goal that I’ve always had is to get a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. I am excited to say that I am in the middle of my MBA program and expected to graduate in 2024. 

Our four company values are Put People First, Do the Right Thing, Do Great Work Together, and Take Ownership and Raise the Bar. What does it mean to you to Do Great Work Together?

It means collaboration. This is part of the reason why I love my role here—I am able to collaborate with many different people in many different departments.
