When asked about his favorite memories, Ernesto related the story of how he was hired in 2001.  “I don’t really believe in luck, but I felt lucky from the first time I was interviewed,” said Ernesto.  “I felt that Gold Eagle was a place I would enjoy working at and who would appreciate me.  I sure was right.”

One of Ernesto’s proudest moments was when he was featured in the Gold Eagle Story Blog, which you can read HERE.

For 17 years, Ernesto worked for Pedro Vega, Sr. Distribution Center Manager.  “Ernesto typifies the Gold Eagle spirit,” said Pedro.  “He has been a key member of our team and his infectious spirit will remain with us.”

Ernesto plans to spend his summers in Chicago and winters in Texas.

Thank you, Ernesto!
