GMN Hero David Fabris

“I love what I do.  I love the company I work for.  I love my job.”

Solving customer challenges is a capability in which many GM Nameplate employees take pride. For GMN’s David Fabris, it is also what makes his job fulfilling.

David started with GMN over 19 years ago as a screen printer operator when he was immediately recommended to apply for an opening in process engineering. Because of the encouragement to try for the position, he was able to quickly rise to his potential in the process engineering department. 

Always excited to go to work with customers and teammates, David Fabris is now the manager of customer service and process engineering in GMN’s San Jose, CA division. He carries the responsibility of supporting the sales team, account managers, process engineers, operations, and the customer, along with providing technical assistance. He makes sure his team and customers are happy. “As a manager, I want to always be supportive and aware of my team,” David states, which is proven in his day-to-day leadership.

 “We don’t do easy things at GMN we do great things,” says David.

GMN leadership has always looked to individuals to be the best they can be — committed to work and to people. Always evolving to deliver greater value to the customer, the culture of GMN is prospering with the help of employees like David. Not only does he manage his team, providing support and inspiration, he also encourages them to spend time reading articles about leadership and new things.  Learning about life, is something David finds truly important.

Every day, David looks forward to stepping foot in his office to take on new challenges and complex problems. He is dedicated to all GMN customers whether he is engaging with them directly, or supporting them through member of our team. 

“Customer focus is solving their problem, supporting their needs, and allowing them to focus on what is important. If we do a good job, our customer doesn’t have to think about the solutions we provide to them—we do that for them,” says David.

For over half a century GM Nameplate has been serving the nameplate manufacturing industry with pride and commitment. To celebrate GM Nameplate’s 60th Anniversary, the team at GM Nameplate decided to shine the spotlight on some of the people who have helped make GM Nameplate and our customers successful.
