Spotlight on Duane Grashorn
Nebraska Region Manager
Making the Good Life Better
When you meet Duane Grashorn you realize quickly that he is a man of great perspective with a calm and knowledgeable demeanor. He began his PeopleService career in 1993 when he moved from working at the wastewater treatment plant in Fremont, Nebraska to become an operator for PeopleService in Valley, Nebraska. To Duane’s way of thinking, he didn’t move far but he most definitely took a step in the right direction. “It was a good fit. PeopleService provided me the flexibility I needed to be the kind of husband and father I wanted to be, and the kind of versatility on the job that made coming to work every day a new adventure.”
Duane’s commitment to excellence, his innate knack for problem-solving and outstanding people skills were all factors in PeopleService’s decision to make him Nebraska Region Manager in 1998. Duane is honest, forthright and committed to the people he works with as if they were family. “I consider myself lucky. I know Nebraska. My family is here. My friends are here. I understand what the people are about – and this job is all about people. I work with a great team of professionals. People I truly respect. Knowing that we all share the same goal of putting the needs of the people we serve first makes my job a very rewarding one.” Happily married for 40 years, Duane and his wife have two daughters and three grandchildren. Duane enjoys fishing and bowling, but his great passion is golfing. Fun fact; Duane golfed in the Waste Management Phoenix Open. And did pretty well!
