EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT ARCHIVES
University of Texas Permian Basin
Joel joined our team in June of 1981 after having served in the Navy for four years. During his time in the Navy, he was responsible for the maintenance, repair, and day to day operation of the boilers that powered everything from the pumps to the main propulsion system on the USS Albany CG-10 stationed in Gaeta, Italy.
Shortly after moving to Odessa in 1981, Joel stumbled across an ad for a Plant Operator working for a company that would operate boilers, chillers, and pumps. This seemed familiar to Joel, so he decided to come on board. And as he would say, "The rest is history. 39 wonderful years."
Joel started out as a class B operator and later became a class A operator. In 1998 he was selected as Win-Sam UTPB's Lead Operator. Today Joel is UTPB's Master Technician, where he mentors and trains all of the staff at our Permian Basin location. He lives in Odessa with his wife of 38 years, enjoys riding motorcycles, and is an active member of his motorcycle riders club, The Brotherhood of the 74 MR.
