Irby’s Best of the Best Honored as Quanta Elite at the Lazy Q

Jan 8, 2024

Congratulations to Irby Foremen Cody Chandler and Garry Jones, and Legend Foundation Services Foreman Juan Sanchez. They were selected by Irby and Quanta Services to be part of the Quanta Elite Program. This program recognizes top-tier foremen across all Quanta operating units. Advanced training and other unique opportunities will be made available to this elite group. As this program continues, we will provide more information.

“Cody, Garry, and Juan showcase exceptional leadership skills, field experience, attitude, and work ethic. They set the bar for distinction in their craft,” said Rick Shouse, Irby Executive Vice President of Operations. “Each of these men mentors our teams – day in and day out – through the toughest situations while never sacrificing quality or compromising on safety. Irby is proud to have these top-notch leaders on our team and recognized by Quanta.”

Honorees of the program were recognized in November at a reception at the Lazy Q Ranch, Quanta’s premier training facility in LaGrange, Texas. They also participated in classroom training where they heard from Quanta and operating unit leaders and toured the Lazy Q facilities and grounds including the Lineworker Museum, training areas and shop.

As part of the program, Cody, Garry, and Juan will receive advanced leadership training with regular group engagement with other Quanta Elite members. This will allow the elite group of first-class leaders to share ideas and best practices and foster growth among themselves as well as with their teams. A goal of the program is for these leaders to develop other linemen and foremen in their business unit to this Elite level.
