At Lighthouse, we are focused on the service we provide to our insureds, our agents, and our employees. We believe our employees are a vital part of our company’s continued success and advancement. Our Employee Spotlight is an opportunity for you to get to know our employees better by celebrating their accomplishments and learning a little about them. Get to know our Information Systems Manager, Keith Wieckowski, in this month’s Employee Spotlight.
Keith started at Lighthouse Property Insurance Corporation in August of 2016. His main responsibility is managing and supporting the data warehouse and reporting environment, also known as DMRS, as well as the CRM system. Keith designs new solutions, creates queries to address specific business requests, and uses the information to support decision making. His favorite part about working here is “being able to work every day with people that are not only outstanding at what they do, but are outstanding at who they are.”
Keith is currently working on updating DMRS to integrate with the new policy administration system we are implementing later this year.
Here’s what Keith had to say, when asked about himself:
Where did you grow up? I grew up outside Trenton, NJ (between Exits 7 & 8), although I have spent most of the past 25 years living and working in the Boston area.
Tell us the three words that describe you best. Family, faith, independence.
Do you have a motto or personal mantra? We are all less than a drop in the great blue motion of the sunlit sea, but it appears as if some drops do sparkle.
What do you like to do outside of work? I enjoy working out, binge watching Netflix, going to the theater, and spending time with my family at the many local theme parks. I especially enjoy going to concerts at Epcot.
What’s your favorite TV show and/or movie? My favorite TV show is anything in the “Bachelor” franchise (please don’t judge me). My favorite movie is “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy; “The Two Towers” being my favorite of the three.
What is your favorite sports team? Philadelphia Eagles and Clemson Tigers.
What’s your favorite food? BACON!
What or who is your favorite band/singer/song? I love all sorts of music from Broadway musicals to the “Hair Bands” of the 1980’s to One Direction, however, I would have to say my favorite singer is Meat Loaf.
What’s your favorite vacation spot? Maui.
What is the best book you’ve read lately? While it’s been a while since I read it, “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy is still my all-time favorite read, followed closely by the “Harry Potter” series.
What is your biggest pet peeve? Orlando Drivers!
Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know about you? Due to corrective surgeries for a medical condition called Ptosis, I sleep with both eyes open. As if that was not freaky enough, I also have a prosthetic hip which makes going through metal detectors a lot of fun.
What’s your proudest accomplishment (either work or personal)? Without a doubt, it’s the relationship that I have with my wife of 16-years and our 12-year-old daughter.
Thanks for being such a great part of the Lighthouse Team, Keith!
