Employee Spotlight

 

Soon after graduating from the University of Michigan in 2015, Chad Gibson joined the Tronair team as a Design Engineer. When asked what he likes most about his job, Chad replied, “It’s a big company with a small company feel. The opportunity to see projects through from project proposal to final build is really an incredible experience.” Chad enjoys the hands-on atmosphere in his department, citing various prototypes scattered around the office. His advice to new employees… “Be curious.” He further explained, “There’s a wealth of knowledge at Tronair and people are more than willing to share, you just have to ask.”

As a child, Chad wanted to be a pilot when he grew up. The aviation industry seemed like a great fit for the first step in his career. Chad would still like to get his pilot’s license, and live out that childhood dream as a hobby. When both feet are on the ground, he enjoys basketball, playing a pick-up game with his friends as well as attending games in Ann Arbor to watch his Wolverines win in style. Chad’s motto? “Always look on the bright side of life.”


 

When asked what her favorite part of her job is, Senior Buyer Courtney Adams replied, “The people. It’s very rewarding to be part of a team that is working together toward something much bigger.” In her recently celebrated 13 years with Tronair, she’s had the opportunity to learn, mentor and grow with many of her colleagues, and also enjoys the new ideas fresh faces bring to the Tronair table. Courtney is working on her APICS certification, and is looking forward to adding that extra value to her team.

On days off, Courtney and her husband frequent the ups and downs of Cedar Point with their son and attend plenty of baseball games in the summer, Go Indians! She would eventually like to see a ballgame at all 30 major league stadiums across the country. When at home, she likes to read and sew, probably where her exceptional attention to detail comes from. Her words of wisdom? “Don’t ever be ashamed of loving the strange things that make your weird little heart happy.”


 

The best type of work doesn’t feel like work, and often, Tronair Customer Service Team Leader Jessica Hennessey’s days fly by as she checks off one happy customer after another. Jessica, as part of the team that fields calls, questions, resolves issues and educates customers, lives by the old adage, “Treat people with respect and the same way you want to be treated.” In her nearly two years on the job, she’s seen Tronair steadily grow and is proud of the work her team has done to propel it forward. As she explains it, “Planes don’t fly by themselves, we help to keep them in the air.”

What keeps Jessica going outside of work? First and foremost are her self-described “world’s cutest dogs,” Cookie and Keyli. She also puts priority on lots of volunteer work, including (a nod to her fondness for science and engineering) nearly 10 years of volunteering as a mentor for FIRST Lego, Tech Challenge, and Robotics teams. On Jessica’s bucket list? Visiting the history-rich city of Petra, Jordan. And just to show what diverse interests she has, she’d love to trade places with any astronaut for a day “just to see the views, send me up!”


 

On Veterans Day, the Tronair family of companies would like to recognize those who have served our country with honor and bravery in the United States Armed Forces. We are proud and humbled that nearly 25% of our Tronair employees are included in this distinction.

We held a luncheon recently to recognize their contributions. Thank you for all you do!
