With more than 18 years experience in Electrical Field Service, I bring to your organization a wealth of qualifications and experience in electrical field service of low and medium voltage VSDs, power generation and conditioning, AC-DC power-control systems and associated analog and digital controls. I also know the value of proper maintenance management, quality personnel training, and skilled assessments and audits.
Working locally and worldwide, I have gained considerable expertise in the value of proper training, installation and maintenance programs. I have accomplished this through my ability to effectively plan and prioritize, as well as developing a strong attention to detail. Equally significant are my instructional capabilities. As a field service technician, I have been successful in facilitating quality product, troubleshooting and safety training when faced with the challenge of communicating effectively with large crews of multiple nationalities. One of my key strengths is my ability to gain the trust and respect of fellow team members.
Currently, I am exploring opportunities and am interested in obtaining a position with a progressive company where I can provide strong and decisive electrical service. I believe my broad experience coupled with my strengths in team building and leadership will make a significant contribution.
