Cliff enjoys the variety his position with Schaefer’s provides beyond his core financial role, from supplier negotiations to customer business development to employee benefit strategy. He’s happy to apply the tools he learned in a larger company to Schaefer’s and its customers to ensure growth together. The ultimate compliment is when Schaefer’s is acknowledged as a customer’s partner. He takes pride in earning that partnership through consistently providing a great quality product, delivered on schedule, for a great value.

Cliff feels the most satisfaction when he sees how many employees are transformed for the better through working at Schaefer’s. He enjoys seeing individuals grow more confident after developing skills and experience from providing solutions to customer needs. He feels blessed to be part of a small business that gives its people opportunities to grow and develop, which in turn allows them to provide for their loved ones.
