Meet Becky Spradling!
Spradling is a sales coordinator at the Hugg & Hall Oklahoma City branch (beginning with Westquip and continuing with Hugg & Hall after the acquisition) and has been with the company for 16 years.
Spradling worked for Ceco Door Products for 13 years prior to her current position and has worked as the sales coordinator for 16. Her typical work day consists of doing anything and everything to assist and coordinate the sales department: she helps the salesmen with paperwork, handles the invoicing, financing, bills of lading, transfers, warranty registrations, customer inquiries, lease returns, shipments and more.
“There is no ‘typical’ day in the sales department,” said Spradling. “Most of the time it is ‘crazy.’”
When asked about her favorite things about the job, Spradling noted that she enjoys the fast-pace and variety.
“It’s never boring,” said Spradling. “It’s full of challenges.”
One of her favorite memories of her time as a sales coordinator comes from her first days on the job.
“I will always remember the first forklift that I checked in on my first day,” said Spradling. “It was, what I thought, a ‘Cadillac’ forklift. It was a Toyota 7FDU40 with brick forks, so there were eight, a cab with heater and A/C. I just remember that I didn’t know anything about a forklift, but that one had to be special.”
“Although, that is a memory that will always stick in my mind, nothing compares to the memory of May 2013,” said Spradling. “Our family lost our home of 24 years on May 20, 2013 to an F5 tornado. Hugg and Hall had only been a part of my life for five months, but the love and support from the administration and staff was overwhelming. Knowing that I was working for a company that was loyal to me and my family was extra special and that is a memory that I will always keep close in my heart.”
Spradling was raised on a 200-acre dairy farm in the unincorporated community of Wheel, Tenn., and she loves to deer hunt.
“I learned to drive on a tractor (I was about 8 years old, shhh),” said Spradling.
She moved to Oklahoma at 19 after marrying a native-Oklahoman.
“My story is, I was ‘raised’ in Tennessee but I ‘grew up’ in Oklahoma,” said Spradling.
Spradling has been married to her husband, Dalton, for 30 years and they have two sons (Jake, 23, and Jared, 19) and a brindle boxer named Saber.
When she’s not at Hugg & Hall, she loves spending time with her family, going on vacations and watching football. Her passions include her faith, her family and the beach.
“Life is too short to wake up with regrets,” said Spradling. “So love the people who treat you right. Love the ones who don’t just because you can. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.”
The company would like to send out a huge thank you to Spradling for all of her hard work throughout the years!
