What do you like most about working at Kimmel & Associates?
I enjoy listening to candidates’ experiences and being a part of pairing them with a company that will embrace their skillset.
What is one thing you learned early in your career that has made you successful?
Listen... truly listen to those you work with in the industry. They will provide you with more information to help build a world-class team than bullet points on a resume or job order.
What is your greatest strength in your role?
My greatest strength is industry knowledge — having been in the industry that owns, operates, and develops alternative/renewable energy infrastructure. I have worked with people throughout the industry who have the skillset that my clients are looking for.
Do you have a favorite quote?
“To get to where you’ve never been, prepare to do what you’ve never done.”
How do you spend your free time?
I enjoy spending time discovering Asheville with my wife Betsy, son Hayden, and dog Max. I also love golfing, fly fishing, hunting, hiking, and watching the Cleveland sports teams try to win.
