Vice President

FOUNDING PRINCIPLES
One of American Tennis Courts, Inc.’s (ATC) core values is managed growth. “The company can grow exponentially, but not at the expense of quality and service. Growth is good, but it must stay balanced with what our customers have come to expect,” says Perry Anne McGarvey, vice president. “ATC’s goal is to make the customer’s life as easy as possible.”

ONBOARDING FAMILY
“All of our family members were required to start working in the field before they moved up to administrative and management positions,” says McGarvey. “This helps ensure that the family member truly understands what it takes to get jobs done and how labor-intensive the work can be.”

Quick Tip: “Be adaptable to change. The old way isn’t always the best way.”

CULTURAL VALUES
“Our business culture is a culture of family, and our employees are considered extended family,” says McGarvey. “Some of our employees have been with us for over 30 years, and their knowledge of the industry and our business are major assets.”

LASTING LEGACY
“My goal has always been to keep the integrity and quality that our business was founded upon and instill those same principles in all of our employees,” says McGarvey. “It takes commitment, but we’ve found that it is more rewarding when you feel like a part of something bigger than the individual.”
