What is your role at BBP?
Evaluate & Execute Project RFQs from Customers and Help BBP Offer the Best Solution to Meet Their Needs. This includes meeting customer specifications, ensuring all requested documentation is provided or can be provided and making sure we are adhering to their submittal requirements to better position BBP to win the project.
How long have you been in the industry?
It will be 11 years come October 2022. I worked as an Instrumentation & Controls Engineer for 8 years prior to coming to BBP in October of 2019. I worked in the EPC world for both Jacobs (Greenville, SC) & Yates (Birmingham, AL).
What do you enjoy most about your role?
Digging into the details of RFQs and making sure that we are hitting all the requirements. I can tell you from experience that a lot of time and effort goes into data sheets and RFQ packages. They purposely put “gotchas” in there to make the evaluation process easier when multiple bidders are being contacted for the same package.
What makes you proud to work at BBP?
The people. I feel that BBP has a great group of people and does a great job retaining individuals that are beneficial for the company. It is nice to have people that will have your back and that you can count on.
What are 3 words to describe BBP? Responsive, Trustworthy, Committed

I’m sure there are some things that I would like to change but I wouldn’t be where I am today or who I am today without those experiences.
Well what type of music do you listen to?
