Faces of Faith Technologies | Meet Jeff, Foreman
At Faith Technologies, we have some amazing employees who make our culture unique. The Faces of Faith Technologies series aims to highlight the talented individuals who work with us. Each month, we’ll introduce you to several of these individuals so you can get to know the ‘Faces of Faith Technologies.’ We recently talked to Jeff Winkler, a foreman from our Menasha, WI branch. Here’s what he had to say:
What led you to work for Faith Technologies?
I was employed with a smaller company and realized I wanted more opportunities, which led me to work for Faith.
What does your position entail?
I oversee a team of electrical helpers and am training a journeyman to become a foreman. We handle electrical installations and maintenance on several jobsites throughout the Fox Cities. We currently are focused on remodel work such as bringing office buildings up to date, but also work on mechanical equipment and HVAC systems. I work closely with customers, as our projects bring different challenges every day, and also focus on being a mentor to those I work with.
What are some of your favorite things about your job?
Working with the high-school co-op students is a highlight of my position; I enjoy watching them learn and progress into electricians. They’re so young, so to see that much motivation and effort is inspiring. I’ve also developed great friendships with co-workers, which has been very rewarding.
What are some of your hobbies or interests outside of work?
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends; we like to be outside as much as possible. When I was younger, I raced motocross, and now work part-time for an off-road race team. Mountain biking is a favorite past-time as well, my two favorite spots to bike are The Brown County Reforestation Camp in Suamico and Hartman Creek State Park in Waupaca, WI.
What’s your why?
My wife, Katie, and my daughter, Abby, are my why. I want to make sure I come home to them and have a work-life balance.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years, I’d like to have another child and become a superintendent with Faith. In addition, I’d like to keep growing into a well-rounded electrician.
