Career Experience

After joining the utility and having lived through the 80's recession where many jobs were cut, i began to take night school courses in the Civil/Structural program with a view to expanding my career horizons. I have been a draftsman, surveyor, planner, a planning workleader, and now manage a department of approx 40 planners responsible for designing.estimating and scheduling new additions to disribution, pressure regulating and measurement plant.

Why I Became A Technology Professional

  • When I began my career with the gas utillity in 1976 there were few credentials necessary for your career to progress. Experience alone would carry you through. In today's world certification validates and documents your ability to learn and perform.

Career Highlights

  • Introduction of GIS mapping to the gas utility
  • Obtaining 'B' fitting license
  • Obtaining C.Tech designation
  • Being selected from a Union position to a key managing role
  • Being in a position to positively affect the careers of so many people

Professional & Community Activities

  • I have had the good fortune to have been involved with several major technology implementations and business process redesigns. I am now in a position to help people fill technical positions and develop their careers. I believe a heathly company is the byproduct of successful and engaged employees.
