You may recognize him from the TSP fields watching his boys play sports or as the poster boy for so many of our social posts, now it’s time to get to know Bryan a little bit better. Bryan was our very first employee. He came on board to do his co-op work while in school to be a mechanic and we kept him on after he completed his apprenticeship.
