What inspired you to work in this industry?
When driving at Encon for the summer, it gave me a chance to see how many different things the company was doing – sheet metal, service, controls, replacements, and more. It gave me a chance to meet all the field technicians, see firsthand how complex the commercial industry was, and the talent that Encon had at the time. I saw great potential for the company to grow.

Did you have a mentor in your career?
Bobby Kuldanek (now head of construction) was my mentor. He trained me from Day 1 and I observed not only what he did but how he interacted with others. I saw how important relationships and communication were in a management position and instantly put my focus on building those relationships.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
My two boys – they play sports year-round so I am going to practices and games just about every day of the week and love every minute of it. When I do have free time, I like to play golf and work on home improvements.
