Curtis McCloy commenced his career at Ideal Setech in November of 2011 as a new-part buyer. Throughout his years here, he has also held the positions of WRA Buyer and Technical Coordinator. During his time at Warren Transmission, Curtis has assisted GM in many of their exciting fundraising activities. He now holds the position of site manager – overseeing everything going on at the Warren plant, managing the warehouse, and keeping things moving and together in the office. He is grateful and very excited for the new opportunity and looking forward to the challenge. His hard work will continue to show and grow as his career progresses. Ted O’Leary agrees, “In each role Curtis has excelled and learned new things to move to the next level. He goes above what is asked of him and is a leader that everyone respects.”
When asked what it is Curtis enjoys most about working with Ideal, Curtis responded, “all of the different opportunities available to employees. It’s awesome for us that Ted prefers to hire and promote from within, working hard knowing the possibilities for advancement are there for you.”
Curtis is a proud graduate of the 2004 class from Wayne State University here in Detroit, having graduated with a degree in Business Administration. On top of that, Curtis also has an extensive background in sales and business management.
Aside from spending quality time with his wife of 6 years, Nicci, and two dogs, Carl and Annie, his hobbies include softball and golfing, and also attending rock concerts when bands like his favorite, the Deftones, come into town. That is not all he appreciates doing in his free time. Due to being a native Detroiter and baseball fan, when the Tigers are in season he enjoys heading out to Comerica Park from his home in Harrison Twp. with Nicci. He considers sports to be a classic favorite for all, especially Detroit sports.
Curtis also finds traveling to be the greatest adventure of all. For his honeymoon, he and his wife spent 3 weeks traveling throughout all of Florida, including exploring the Keys. He considers that to be the experience of a lifetime. He and his wife hope to one day grow their family, and have children to embark on the adventures of parenthood with, and to be able to create such experiences with and for their future little ones.
In closing, Curtis has a piece of advice to offer anyone who may be seeking it, “work hard at whatever it might be, don’t take anything for granted. Do what you like to do and work hard at it, be good at it, give it your all. That’s how I got to the place I am in now.”
