Electrical, Rigging

Chris, Regarding yesterday’s installation, the crews did a fantastic job of getting everything in place and wired correctly. I really appreciate all of the effort that went into this round of installations. Also, I just want to commend the rigging crew as well as the electrical crew, Evan Toll, Gary Weakland, Brandon Weitz, Kyle Elwell and Aaron Tobesman , and specifically, Electricians Eric Hund, David Dirven and Rob Tykoski , who was mainly responsible for line 11 as well as line 6 last time and repaired line 4 back in March. Those guys did great work and stayed after everyone else had gone home to make sure that all systems worked correctly. I really appreciated that! Sean Catt

Caught in the Act Safety Integrity Teamwork Dedication

Dan Fitzpatrick Teamwork, Dedication

Vadim Beginin, Jamie Bartz Teamwork, Dedication

“I would like to acknowledge Vadim Beginin and Jamie Bartz for being shining examples of our core values and a bright example of the high caliber employees we have here at Lee. Tuesday, I was with my family for a private matter. As I tried to

“Countless times, Dan has rescheduled vacations, came in on his days off and worked back-to-back weekends (sometimes after being out of town.) His dedication is why we are able to successfully finish jobs with little to no problems. His leadership is what we hope to replicate throughout our department.”

be involved with work as much as possible, I found myself in a tight spot. With my phone quickly losing battery life, a customer called me with an emergency. He needed last minute, skilled labor support to dispatch immediately and work through the night. My last phone call before my phone died was to Vadim. I explained the situation in detail, and he said he was on it. He assured me that I need not to worry and to get back to my family obligation. He and Jamie worked diligently, entered a job, allocated a crew, and exceeded both mine and the customer’s expectations. They showed true teamwork and dedication. Being able to count on my team is crucial to my individual success and the overall success of this great company.”

Jeremy Kuchenmeister Teamwork, Dedication

“When an out-of-town job was scheduled last minute today, Jeremy worked through his lunch to ensure that our crew would have the material and tools needed on site tomorrow morning. The electrical department is always appreciative of

Jaclyn Peterson Teamwork, Dedication

Fred True Safety, Teamwork, Dedication & Integrity

“When we were stuck in New York due to the weather, Jaclyn assisted us and handled all the re-booking. I am sure calling Delta at 11:30pm that night was not on her “to do” list. Just knowing she was available to help, made the whole ordeal a lot less stressful.”

“When visiting the job site, Fred made it a point to talk to each crew. He checked up on our tools, what we were accomplishing and if we were having any issues with safety. Fred was very personable and dedicated to not just the company, but

the employees as well.”
