Buffalo Resident David Garland Promoted to Senior Residential Supervisor at People Inc.

Jan 31, 2014

David Garland of Buffalo has been promoted to Senior Residential Supervisor at People Inc. He has taken supervisory studies with Cornell on interpersonal behavior. He began his career in the manufacturing sector as a manager. While searching for new prospects, he heard about People Inc. from another employee who was aware of his potential and directed Garland to apply. Garland interviewed and never looked back. He said, “As many say we do not work in the field for the money. But I can say a smile is worth a million bucks and that in itself is rewarding.”

Garland’s new position will involve supervision of all staff, professional development and for the day-to-day operation of the site. Although Garland has only started with People Inc. a little over a year ago as an IRA specialist, he accepted the team leader position after two months of employment and the SRS position just under a year from that.

Garland wants people to know that, “I would have to say the best story thus far is having an individual prefer me to spend his Birthday with and have a great dinner out…How many people can say they enjoy their job, can you?”

Garland was born and raised in Niagara Falls, but now lives in Buffalo. He said in his spare time, “I enjoy camping mostly.”

People Inc. is a not-for-profit health and human services agency providing programs and services to more than 12,000 people with special needs, their families, and seniors throughout Western New York.
