Henson Gamez took a leap of faith when he left the warm shores of Florida behind and embarked on a new adventure in the vibrant city of Denver, Colorado. Little did he know that this daring move would shape his career and transform his life in ways he never expected.


Starting out as a measurer at Moderno Porcelain Works, Henson’s determination and drive quickly caught the attention of his colleagues and superiors. His undeniable talent and unwavering work ethic led him to climb the ranks, eventually landing him the prestigious role of operations manager. It was a remarkable journey for Henson, one that proved his worth as an exceptional employee and an invaluable asset to the team.


When Henson arrived in Denver, the Moderno showroom was nothing more than a blueprint, a mere concept waiting to come alive. Undeterred by the bare walls and buzzing construction noises, Henson dove headfirst into the project, fueled by the belief that he was in good hands with this company. The empty space soon transformed into a magnificent showroom, a testament to the dedication and motivation of Henson and his team.

Reflecting on his experience at Moderno, Henson spoke of the unique company culture that made all the difference. “I am surrounded by family members instead of coworkers here,” he revealed, highlighting the sense of camaraderie and support that filled the workplace. Henson recognized his teammates and, in particular, his general manager, Roberto Zamora, for their pivotal role in his success. Their encouragement and unwavering belief in the team’s abilities fueled their collective drive to deliver excellence in every project they undertook.

Completing the Denver showroom in October 2022 was a defining moment for Henson and his team. With their meticulous attention to detail and a shared vision of creating a “wow” factor, they breathed life into the space, leaving visitors in awe. Henson’s advice to those starting their careers with Moderno was simple yet profound: learn the art of producing a polished finished product and embrace the power of teamwork. Despite the team’s small size, they tackled the project with grace and brought the showroom to life in all its glory.

In less than a year, Henson’s remarkable skills and versatility propelled him through various roles within the Moderno warehouse. Beyond his core responsibilities of measuring, drafting, and operating the water jet, Henson eagerly lent a helping hand to anyone in need, fostering growth and taking on more responsibilities. His exceptional work ethic and dedication to his craft led to a meteoric rise from measurer to operations manager, a testament to his unwavering commitment.

However, amidst all the triumphs and accomplishments, Henson couldn’t help but jest about one aspect of his Denver experience—the cold weather. Coming from the sunny paradise of Florida, he had developed a love-hate relationship with the chilly temperatures of his new city, a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of his rewarding journey.

Henson’s story at Moderno is not an isolated tale. Joining this exceptional team means signing up for challenges, growth, and exhilarating new experiences. Henson stepped out of his comfort zone, leaving behind the familiarity of Florida, and in return, discovered a career beyond his dreams, forged new friendships that felt like family, and gained a profound sense of appreciation. The remarkable project of building the showroom was just the beginning of Henson’s extraordinary journey. Filled with boundless enthusiasm and unwavering motivation, he eagerly looks forward to embarking on new projects with Moderno, ready to leave his mark once again.

As Henson’s manager, Roberto, proudly stated, “Henson is an exceptional employee and a great asset to our team. His dedication, talent, and unwavering commitment to excellence have made a significant impact on our success. We are fortunate to have him as part of our Moderno.”
