Exploring the connection between facilities and Navy ships.
In his spare time, Tim writes about various topics concerning Navy history, leadership, and preparedness, and some of his posts have a clear connection to the facilities services industry.
For example, in one post, Tim explains the history of, and his connection to, the USS Preble. Tim served on the Preble during his time in the Navy. He was a propulsion engineer on the ship. It was the first engineering job he ever held. Upon joining Cushman & Wakefield in 1998, Tim was the engineer for the Gulf Coast, South East, Mid-Atlantic and New England regions, and one of his assignments included the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. It turned out that the shipyard was where the ex-Preble was being stored until she was scrapped. This was a meaningful symbol for Tim, and, during visits, he was able to go aboard the vessel where he started his engineering career. A few years later when he won the “Most Significant Contribution” award from the National Quality Council, he used the prize money to purchase a part of the Preble’s stern. That stern currently sits in the entryway of his home.
Finding a successful career in facilities.
Here at C&W Services, we’re always looking to recruit veterans to fill key roles, as we believe they’ll find rewarding work directly related to their skills and a community that both celebrates their contributions and supports their distinct needs.
We offer many resources to veterans and reservists throughout our organization. One example is our recently launched Buddy Program, which pairs veteran new hires with a mentor who will provide them with advice, knowledge, and will help them discover networking opportunities, internal groups, and other veterans-focused resources. We’re also an active participant in the Hiring our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program, which provides veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses with training and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce.
We try each and every day to make sure that this is a great place to be a vet. And we’re thrilled when people like Tim agree. “For me, C&W Services is an organization with a cogent vision, an important mission, and a commitment to supporting their people as they work to get the job done. That’s why I have returned for a second and third time. It’s all about the team, and the C&W Services team is the best.”
