Team Player

I pride myself with working with others, regardless if I am the trainee or trainer. I have been the production manager at PACH & Company where I supervised a small group of three. Working in tight quarters and under stress at deadline time I have my fair share of experience. I worked with happy co workers to disgruntle co workers and believe me I prefer the happy ones. I had to dis-fuse some some tense situations in the past and have learned a lot from it. I don't expect everyone to be buddy buddy but I do expect everyone try there best,be professional and be courteous to others. I have never asked someone to do something that I wouldn't do myself. If I finish a project or job early I always will ask or seek who needs help,even if its not my department. I know the term player gets thrown around a lot, It is something I really pride my self with and mean it.

Support customers

Provide top level customer support to our clients and end users with support. Provide phone support to technicians out in the field with trouble shooting and support. Try our best to resolve the issue over the phone/E-mail so that one of our technicians or myself will not need to travel/fly to location. Provide proper part numbers and recommendations to the client. Ship proper parts out to the customer.


When in the field it is vital that we the technicians do everything in our ability to get the issues and problems out in the field resolved. Do to the fact that over 50% of our new start ups and service calls our out of state ,we need to make sure no additional travel or additional repairs will be needed. Problem solving and trouble shooting is almost like and art form, need to get all the facts, have all the necessary tools and equipment to get the job done. Isolate the issue and source of the problem than correct it, in some cases it can be multiple issues.


When dealing with customers or clients in the field or on the phone, One must remember that they come first. I often recall times when I had bad experiences(and good) with technical support personal and technicians, from the phone company to a television cable installer. That can make or break a deal, being visible and the face and voice you represent your company.


Do to the high degree to public exposure in our industry, good visibility is very important. From appearance to performance to work ethic is all important. I spent many years in public works and know what its like being in the spotlight . Even today with my current employer being out on a new start up and having the mayor asking a million questions as your finishing up a job and a ribbon cutting ceremony just hours away, Visibility and appearance means everything.
