Greenwood would like to take a moment to recognize one of our dedicated employees, Chris Fletcher. Chris was hired back in November as a technician at our GEV North facility in Brunswick, Maine. Chris is a native of Maine, born in Presque Isle, and raised in the Brunswick area. Chris graduated from Universal Technical Institute in Orlando, Florida before beginning his career as a Master BMW tech after completing their educational program. Chris then moved on to work for the Tesla Corporation in Houston, Texas where he attained Tesla Master Tech Certification working as a Lead Tech and Shop Forman.
Although Chris had no previous firetruck maintenance training, he certainly possessed plenty of experience in the automotive field. More importantly, Chris is motivated to learn our business, and to that end he studied to achieve ASE Master Truck (8 tests) and Master Automotive (8 tests) in 28 days, and he also completed his EVT Master Certification (6 EVT tests) over a period of 50 days which included traveling to 3 states (now that is a commitment!!). So in summary, Chris took and passed all 22 tests over a period of 78 days total!!
We are very excited to have another member on the Greenwood team dedicated to better serving our customers and we could not be more proud of his accomplishments!
