I started in the electrical industry in 1976. I worked my way up to a service truck driver, and did my first ground up design/build project in 1982 on Indianapolis Fruit Company. I topped out as a union journeyman electrician in January 1988. I worked for a large union contractor as an estimator and was fortunate to work on such projects as the Subaru Isuzu plant in Lafayette IN., Indianapolis Art Museum, and the Indianapolis Zoo just to name a few. I decided to put my tools back on go back out into the field, and landed at RCI headquarters in Indianapolis. I didn’t know it at the time however I ended up staying there and running the project for almost 3 years. My responsibility for that project was to help design the electrical work in each phase of construction, seeing it through state permitting. Then, I would do an estimate for the phase and install the work with my men. It was definitely one of the finest projects I’ve ever worked on.
Upon completing this project, I decided to take my Masters’ License and go into business for myself under the name Generations Electric. I was fortunate to receive my Masters’ License in 1998 developed this business from the ground up, working hands on with our team of employees. I handled all estimating, and project management responsibilities. I was directly involved with all day to day activities. I was approached by a former union employer to head up their estimating department, which at first I said no to, however after several months of being approached I said yes.
For approximately 12-1/2 years I was Chief Estimator and was privileged to have be involved in many of the premier projects during this time such as, many Eli Lilly projects, The old, and the new Indianapolis Airport, the new Airport Tower, Lucas Oil Stadium, Duke Energy Projects, Altra Ethanol Plant, and budgeting many millions of dollars’ worth of projects.
It was after this that I came to Van Valer and started the electrical department. My responsibilities are overseeing this division, and working day to day hands on with our employees, and trying to develop Van Valer as a smart, sought after Company for the community.
