Military Success Stories


I left the Navy in 1991 and joined Fairbanks Scales in 2006 as a Field Service Manager. I am currently the Area Service Manager for the Baltimore Customer Support Center (CSC). My military experience has helped me lead the CSC in performing high quality work and assisting technicians to perform at their peak level.

The culture at Fairbanks is a family style with an emphasis on providing quality service work. By having a smaller team, it is easy to know the personal lives of each team member and assist them in making good decisions.

At Fairbanks, I have the privilege to work with each technician, to help them grow, to hold them accountable, and to make them a key component of a successful team.

Shortly after I retired from the Navy in 1995, I joined Fairbanks Scales as the Director of Operations at the Meridian Manufacturing Facility.  My military experience taught me that whatever the scenario, it’s always about completing the mission and maintaining your focus on the objectives. 

The “want to improve” attitude is very evident in the Fairbanks culture. I am proud to be part of a company that is able to differentiate itself on its strengths and acknowledges its areas in need of improvement by giving us the resources to succeed.

A particular benefit of working at Fairbanks is the many intelligent, tenacious, and capable people throughout the organization who contribute every day in their sphere of influence to do it better, make it better, and see it better.
