I started my journey working between the shop floor and the warehouse. I got a taste of fabrication, assembly, plumbing, and inspections of the fire apparatus while on the shop floor. I started learning the equipment while handling the products in the warehouse. I then started to facilitate the warranty services for both Heiman and Rosenbauer apparatus while continuing to work both the shop floor and warehouse. I then started working with the previous Sales Manager as he was transitioning into retirement. This is when I started working firsthand with our outsides sales team, vendor representatives, manufacturing partners, and facilitating trade shows.
Before joining the Heiman Fire Team I was enlisted in the Marine Corps as an Assault Amphibious Vehicle Crewman.
It is satisfying to me knowing that the apparatus, equipment, and services that we provide have a direct impact on the lives in the communities that we serve. It is even more rewarding to hear the success stories from the firefighters while performing their job duties. I also enjoy the experience of navigating new ideas while collaborating as a team. Everyone’s input and suggestions are welcome which brings many different perspectives from different experience levels.
I enjoy spending time outdoors at the family cabin. I love to hunt, fish, UTV, and go boating with my wife and son. Watching my son grow and learn new skills is the most rewarding part of it all.
