We are pleased to announce that Jarred A. Castro has been awarded the OTP Pro of the Year Award. The announcement was made at the finale of the OTP Pro Virtual CyberConnect Conference on January 27, 2021. Jarred is 1 of only 2 OTP Pro’s chosen for the prestigious tech award out of the entire Walnut Creek Field Office. "We’re extremely proud of Jarred’s achievement in winning this National Award and representing McDonalds of Guam and Saipan. Technology is critical to our operations and Jarred plays an instrumental role in the success of our technology systems,” says McDonald’s of Guam and Saipan Vice President Joe Ayuyu Jr. Jarred joined McOpCo in March 2010. After 3 years, he was promoted to Department Manager for McDonald’s of Tamuning. In May 2016, he remained with McDonald’s following Owner/Operators Jose and Marcia Ayuyu’s acquisition of all of the McDonald’s Guam restaurants. In early 2019, he entered into the Operations Technology Person (OTP) program, quickly earning an OTP 1 and OTP 2 certification. In September 2019, he attended McDonald’s "M Tech University" in Arizona, earning an OTP 3 certification. Today, Jarred provides high level technology support and installation for McDonald’s of Guam and Saipan. McDonald’s Tamuning General Manager Vilmore Santiago shared his excitement following the announcement. "When we started learning about OTP in the restaurant and the company was deciding who will be the best person to be an OTP, right away on top of my mind I suggested my manager Jarred Castro. Seeing him with a knowledge on technology and having a personality and that his fashion. Having him as an OTP is a big help in the restaurant. We are made aware of any updates/upgrades. If there’s any maintenance schedule happening on technology side, he also shares the information ahead of time. Also, he supports other stores on technology issues and guides other OTP’s to continue to learn from him,” says Vilmore. On behalf of our entire McFamily, we are proud to celebrate this wonderful achievement and honored that Jarred is a part of our team. Congratulations Jarred!
