Music. Martial Arts. And Life’s big questions. These aren’t the subjects of a movie or a famous novel–but they could be! For now, these big subjects bring us to our latest employee spotlight. This time, we shine the light on Bruce Coates, a stand-out Groundskeeper on the team at The Sycamores, a beautiful Lewis community in Vacaville, CA.
Bruce joined Lewis Apartment Communities in 2012 and recently celebrated his five-year anniversary with the Company in August. “It’s an important milestone” says Senior Regional Director Shareka Johnson, “and a testament to his commitment to his team at Lewis”. We couldn’t agree more.
