Tony Wood has quite the history with Swift Supply in Orange Beach, AL. He first came to work here in 1998, and spent two years helping wherever needed on the yard. He went from pushing a broom to loading customers to building material loads. He then left and took a job with a local contractor, where he gained a wealth of knowledge of how our products are actually used in the field. Tony then spent a year working at Loxley Ace Hardware, and learned the retail side of our industry.
Tony came back to Swift Supply in November 2003, and the following year Hurricane Ivan blew through our area. Tony was invaluable as a load builder as the store was as busy as it has ever been. He had an opportunity at the end of 2005 to go to work with his brother when they started a landscaping business together. They worked together for six years.
In 2012, Tony came to the realization that the grass truly was not greener on the other side, and returned to Swift Supply for a third tenure. It was a charm as he displayed a lot of maturity and quality work ethic, and in June 2015 he was promoted to yard foreman. He has done a great job in that role, and leads his crew by his example.
Tony married Brooke in March 2009, and they have three dogs and a cat. Brook does a great job keeping Tony in line.
