Meet Lee Summers, C Mechanical Services!
What role do you play in your organization?
I am responsible for bidding and managing commercial electrical projects, projects from a few hundred to several million dollars. I am also active with our safety committee and company leadership team.
Why do you wake up and go to work every day?
I go to work every day with the feeling that I will be making a difference. It’s important to me that my work be that which people can look at and enjoy for generations to come. It also excites me to know that many special projects that we have worked on will impact the local community long term. I want to set a solid example for our field employees to produce the highest quality work.
How has your involvement in ABC Keystone provided you value in your professional life?
I have been involved with ABC since my apprenticeship started back in 2006. From the various apprenticeship teachers I had, to my mentors training me for the ABC National Craft Championships (NCC), to becoming an apprenticeship instructor and later leading the NCC training, I have long seen the benefits of ABC. I met many people and learned so many things during my involvement at ABC. I have learned to take criticism and use it to perform self-assessment and improve, and I have learned a great deal about how politics plays into every aspect of our trade work. It’s truly an invaluable resource.
What are your hobbies?
I enjoy watching my children participate in various sports and activities, collecting Legos and model trains, doing projects around the house, playing drums, and singing.
What is your favorite inspirational quote?
