KFI’s performance group staff consists of professional engineers, facility managers, field technicians and controls engineers. This experienced team loves to problem solve and willingly takes on the toughest challenges.

“I like to identify people’s strengths and give them the opportunity to utilize those strengths, taking on additional responsibility. As they grow, the overall company benefits as a result of this critical team taking ownership in the organization and the clients we serve.”
