Dimitrios Derventzis

Purchasing Agent

Broome

You can count yourself lucky if you have the pleasure of getting to work with our amazing Purchasing Agent, Dimitrios!

Di is one of the friendliest staff members I’ve met while working at ACHIEVE. I didn’t grasp at first just how much goes into being a Purchasing Agent for ACHIEVE. With around 30 locations over three counties, all needing a wide variety of items at the best price ever, Di is most certainly a busy guy.

Although he is busy, he is still willing to take the time out of his day to help you, and most importantly, make you laugh. If something is needed, whether it be supplies, a helping hand, answering a question or a smile he is right there. His wonderful personality and can do attitude is a constant. He is very “customer service” oriented and will bend over backwards to make sure you receive what you need. His immediate response, along with a smile or a joke, to any request is greatly appreciated!

Even if he doesn’t outwardly admit to it, he truly enjoys making others happy. Whether it be through his jokes, bringing in his authentic Greek cuisine for others to try, to even telling a unique story form his past, you’ll want to spend hours with this man. We all rely on Di, and can often take him for granted. Di is also known to come in early, stay late, and even come in on once scheduled PTO days, just because he loves the organization. Di is very deserving to be recognized for all that he does as ACHIEVE’s Purchasing Agent.
