What is the most exciting thing about working in this business?
The most exciting thing about working at Tinco is that there is always something new to learn, so we don’t have that boring feeling of doing the same thing. Whether it’s working with our new installers to teach them our trade, developing a new panel system, or creating new technology platform to improve our employees tools and working environment.

What is your personal passion and why?
My biggest passion is to teach what I know or passing my experience and knowledge to the younger generation, knowing that I’m making a difference on somebody’s life is really gratifying, is like the fuel that keeps my engine running.
What is your greatest Tinco memory?
My greatest Tinco memory, 5/11/2012, when the group decided to remain aligned with management and remain as an open shop. That was one of the most important to me because it signaled we were and are united, that we share common goals as a family.
