Welcome to the team, everyone. We get better every day.
“I’m here to serve the customer in all matters safety- and logistics-related per my scope of work. I’m also here to be the best ambassador for Logisticus Group I can be!
“I chose this professional path because I absolutely love working in the renewable energy sector, which I’ve worked in for the last 3 years. I enjoy serving this industry, as well as the people that are a part of it. This skilled trade is the future. I’m proud to serve essential personnel and provide them with everything I can possibly offer. Figuring out how we can best use the natural elements to support our everyday lives is one of the most intriguing processes I think you can be a part of. It’s fascinated me since I was a child. This is a career that my family and I can be proud of. I have a beautiful wife named Emily and 2 sons named Clayton (14), and Kaleb (8).”
“I’m looking at the long-term, and the path that Logisticus has proven to be successful on fits my long-term goals. Eventually, I’d like to make my way back to HQ and potentially move into a project/personnel manager-type role where I could assist future F.O.s develop in their own roles. I’d like to pass on the knowledge gained from being an F.O. myself, which requires being able to see issues from multiple aspects – all sides of the ball – then being most efficient as a result.
