We rely on Daniel to help us coordinate our different jobs and crews on the field. He manages the schedules and logistics to ensure that projects are completed on time and with excellent quality. Before joining our team in 2020, Daniel already had the experience of 15 years of substation work and 6 years of electric power systems work. So, he has a comprehensive understanding of how substations operate, including everything from under the dirt to up in the air. When he’s not at work, he enjoys spending time with his family at the beach.
