In the early hours of the summer of 1969 at the age of 11 I was taught the value of a hard day’s work and the honor of a man’s word. These lessons were given to me by the man I respect most in the world: my father Richard Avila. He passed on these virtue’s from his father and were simply the greatest gifts I have ever received in my lifetime. I didn’t know this at the time as I surely had no idea that not being able to play with my friends as the other kids did would be the coolest way to grow up and be able to learn these lessons and see what life was about at such an young age. Learning to work hard and expect nothing to ever be handed to you by anyone and all while keeping your word and earning an honest dollar were lessons I am so grateful to have learned from the hardest working man I have ever known. I have never lost sight of those lessons and honor my father by working hard and never breaking my word.
Being someone that has worked very hard for everything and have taken that same approach to sports many times in my life and having great success doing exactly what my father had taught me. I worked very hard I have always kept my word and never at any time expected anyone to ever give me anything I didn’t deserve . That mindset has taken me to be the team captain in six World Championship Water Ski Racing Teams, to be the first Water Ski Racer to ever be inducted into the Water Ski Hall of Fame, To more than 25 National Championships both skiing and boat racing. I was an undefeated high school wrestler and have built the World's Most Beautiful Motorcycle in 2010. These lessons my father taught me of working hard for everything and always keeping your word even if it’s to yourself are thedriving force behind all of these accomplishments. These sports endeavor’s also taught me how use teamwork to achieve your highest of levels in anything you seek to accomplish.
Teamwork along with a very strong work ethic is what my team and I strive for here at MRC. We have built a very strong team of subcontractors and building alliances with surety companies and suppliers. This hard working team approach is the main reason MRC has been as successful as we have. As president and CEO I continue to use the lesson’s my father taught me each and every day to guide MRC along the same path of working hard for our clients. Giving them an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay. Always keeping our word and delivering our projects on schedule and within budget. We are very proud of what we stand for and very proud of the vast team of employees and construction partners. We look forward to serving your needs with the very same old fashioned honest hard working approach that my father used for so many years to build your project andto make lasting friendships with all of our development partners.
