Employee Spotlight - Joe Ptak

December is here which means it’s time to drink hot chocolate, build a snowman, and for our waterpark company to share our final Splashtacular Spotlight of the year! 

This month, the team at our waterpark company is so excited to introduce you to Joe Ptak. Joe is a newer member to the team, but we can barely remember how we got by before he joined our project management team. 

Joe is a Kansas native with a deep passion for the Kansas City Chiefs and Kansas State! When he isn’t working hard at our waterpark company to deliver our clients the best experience possible, you can find him playing golf or cheering on one of his beloved sports teams. 


Help us thank Joe for all of his hard work, by getting to know him below!
