City & State : Tampa,Fl
Job Title Pipe Fitter
Relocation Preferences : where the work is
Objective : I am a certified and union trained plumber/steamfitter with over 20 years experience. I am well versed in the construction field and have run large mechanical projects. During these projects, I have interaction with other trades and often have sub-contractors working under me. I have to schedule, design, organize, plan, budget, order materials, set manpower levels and duties, inspect and approve work. I know the inner workings of buildings and construction. I have run the maintenance department of a large business complex and worked many large projects.

I started in the trades with UA Local 38 as a pipe fitter in the shipyards of San Francisco and applied for and received a Top Secret Clearance for the nuclear reactor and sonar spaces.
I moved to an apprentice plumber/steamfitter with UA Local 38 and graduated in the top 5% of my class. I worked my way up to a journeyman and then foreman in the trades.

I moved to Florida from San Francisco, California in Dec. of 2005. I purchased, built and sold a successful business but want to return to my trained profession. I have recently worked for Florida Mechanical Contractors. I designed and installed many hydronic and refrigerated HVAC systems. I have managed and maintained my own rental properties and apartment buildings for many realtors.

I have experience in customer service, budgeting, human resources, computer programs -Microsoft and Windows. I have the ability to see through the situation and find multiple solutions to the problem pick the best choice and implement the solution.

I am a team player that can motivate others to do their best. I empower them to bring innovative ideas to the project to save time and money, while remaining on the cutting edge of innovation. I believe the job gets done with people acting as a team and reaching for the common goal of a project, that all can be proud of. I think safety comes first and practice it always on and off the job. I feel that I have great skills and work well to focus on the important and leave the trivial aside so accomplishing the goal becomes the focus and leave the obstacles behind. I can adapt well to changing priorities while getting the job done, under budget and on time.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope I can become a player on your team. I am willing to relocate.

Thank You
