Lead Engineer, CW Services
Mr. Morales is a 30+ year employee at the site who continuously strives and succeeds at making the site (2,000,000 sq ft) as safe as possible for over 5,000 customers and employees. Mr. Morales was instrumental in the site receiving its first Safety Award. Mr. Morales’s job is defined as a Leadman of maintenance and an electrician by trade. He is extremely knowledgeable at his trade and is the go-to man when the site loses power due to the outside utility department issues. Mr. Morales also assumes the duties of creating weekly and monthly schedules for the workforce ensuring that our 24/7 coverage for the site is fully manned, performing daily shift schedules, participating in tenant meetings for highly technical shutdowns and continuously fills the void of open shifts volunteering for immediate coverage. This includes Holidays as he sets the example for other employees allowing the younger staff with families to enjoy their time together. Mr. Morales has also been the main cog in creating yearly budgets for the site always looking to improve upon base building equipment utilizing different vendors to obtain the best price possible for the site. Mr. Morales is a cost effective employee who runs the customers business as if it was his own.

In my 36 years as a maintenance manager, I have never come across an individual who carries himself like as professionally as he does with leadership skills that create a motivated environment and workforce.
