These photographs are of the office staff of High Sierra Pools, a full-scale pool-management firm with a variety of customers including commercial apartment buildings, condominiums, home owners associations, hotels, recreation facilities and fitness centers. They have approximately 1500 employees, who operate hundreds of facilities in the mid-Atlantic area.
Their administrative staff is highly international. Many are of Eastern-European origin; they come from Poland, Bulgaria, Serbia, Russia, Ukraine, and the Czech Republic (and from Chilean and US origin also).
Thanks to their VP, Radek Kaczor, for inviting CPDP to include the firm as part of our documentation of life along Columbia Pike.
They are located at 1012 S. Cleveland Street in Arlington, just off Columbia Pike.
The office's Yorkshire terrier is named "Chudlik," which means "Buttons" in Czech.
