I began my professional journey as an HVAC mechanic. I maintained the building systems of a 465,000 square foot multi building, multi tenant campus at The Andover Tech Center. My customer service and problem solving abilities were quickly recognized, and I was given an opportunity to prove my skills in a management role. I have been passionate about providing quality service to every company I worked for as well as the people I serve. I enjoy going to work and make the best of each day. While at Ferncroft Corporate Center, a 300,000 square foot multi tenant building I reduced the buildings electric consumption by 40% monthly and maintained the reduction even during an increase in building occupancy. I also reduced Ferncroft Corporate Centers hot and cold calls by 80%. I increased tenant confidence in the building management’s ability to run the facility which caused tenant retention and an increased property value. I'm looking forward to my next employment adventure.
