Manager, Transmission and Distribution
Southern California Edison
I have been with Southern California Edison for over 33 safe years in the Transmission and Distribution department serving in the craft, design, and leadership disciplines. I began my career in 1980 as a Groundman, and progressed through the craft ranks to Construction Foreman. I performed safely for 16 years in the field, and had no recordable injuries personally or on the crews that I led.
In 1996 I moved into the Design organization, designing and managing projects that were focused on safety, reliability, cost-effectiveness, and providing flexibility for those charged with operating the system in the field. Since 2007 I have held various management positions in Transmission and Distribution, which has enabled me to lead the effort to develop a safe and sustainable culture of safety, based on trust, pride in profession, and respect for our craft.
I hold serving as our brother’s keeper and advocate as my core belief and responsibility, and that those values are the foundation of a safe culture.
