Today, we said goodbye to longtime Polar Bottle production team member, Alazim Faye, who is returning to Senegal to be with his family.
We were first introduced to Alazim when our company president Judy — who was on crutches at the time on account of a foot injury — was at the airport struggling to get her suitcase out of her car and Alazim offered to help. After chatting with Alazim as he helped her inside, Judy learned that he had moved to Colorado from Senegal to study law at the University of Colorado and was looking for work to support his family while he finished his studies.
Judy was so impressed by his kindness that she offered him a job on the spot. He has been a fantastic employee ever since. Good luck on your return to Senegal Alazim. We will miss you!
