Employee Spotlight: Richard Magness

Richard Magness, Field Service Manager.

Meet Richard Magness

Richard Magness has been in the service industry for more than 17 years. He began his career as a road technician. Eventually, he moved to Shop Foreperson and recently switched positions to Field Service Manager at the company’s El Dorado, AR location. Richard ensures his team is on top of their daily duties and keeps paperwork caught up throughout the day. He also helps keep the quotes, parts, and jobs on course.

His favorite part about his job is the satisfaction of fixing broken equipment. He also loves working with such a great group of people. “My most memorable moment with the company is when, after annoying Mark Gibbs to hire me—an inexperienced mechanic—he gave me a chance to become a part of the Hugg & Hall family. I’m not sure if he had confidence that I could do the job or just got tired of me asking!”

Richard is a Willisville, Arkansas native, where he lives with his wife of almost 40 years. They have two daughters and five grandchildren. In his free time, Richard enjoys going to dirt track races, playing with his puppy and spending time with his family.

Stephen Dunn, Service Manager at the Hugg & Hall El Dorado branch, recently spoke on the positive impact Richard Magness has made on the service department. “Richard has completely turned the El Dorado shop into a well-organized and profitable part of our location. He has committed to bringing our service department to a new level in team work and customer service. The shop techs will be sad to see Richard go, but every technician in El Dorado and Texarkana is excited about this next stage of his career.“

Thank you, Richard, for your hard work and dedication throughout the years!

Update: Richard Magness retired from Hugg & Hall after many years of service. Thank you for your commitment to Hugg & Hall and congratulations on your retirement!
