On January 11th, 2008, I celebrated my 20-year anniversary with Burns Engineering. Wow how time flies when you’re having fun!! I still remember the day my Dad asked me if I wanted to interview for an accounting position at Burns. I was so excited to have the opportunity to come back to Burns as a full-time employee.
As a kid, I would ride my bike to Burns and get paid piece-rate for doing assembly work. I’d make a couple bucks and then spend it on candy on the ride home. Over the years, my Dad taught me the lesson of saving some of that money, a lesson that would be the foundation of one of the Burns’ Core Values: Strong Financial Performance.
A lot has changed since 1988. I was single then and now have a wonderful family. My wife Sharon and my 3 daughters keep me busy when I’m not dreaming about new temperature applications.
Yes, while some things change… today, just the same as 20 years ago, we at Burns are committed to our Core Values, and proudly share them on the Burns Website.
Here’s to the memories, and excitement about the future!
