ENERTECH Holdings welcomed Brian Bicknese to the ENERTECH team as Director of Workforce Development. In this new role, Brian will lead initiatives for tower technician development and workforce development to enhance the capabilities of existing employees as well as foster and develop the next generation of technicians. Bicknese began his career in the wireless infrastructure services industry more than two decades ago as a “green hand.” Over the years he gained valuable knowledge and experience not only in field operations and technical skill, but also in business management along with displaying a natural talent for teaching critical technical skills to others. Prior to joining ENERTECH, Brian served as Vice President of Field Services and Vice President of Safety & Training for Vertical Limit Construction in Minnesota.
“Brian’s level of first-hand experience with growth and progression across all roles is a rare thing,” ENERTECH CEO Eric Chase observed. “In addition, he’s become an industry recognized subject matter expert on safety, means, methods and industry standards. We are excited to bring on a passionate industry leader who will add to the existing deep bench of professionals dedicated to the safety of our industry’s tower technicians.”
