Time at CEE: 18 years
Hometown: Prior Lake
Favorite school subject: Science
Why CEE?: I love CEE's mission to help homeowners and businesses cut energy waste and save money. And CEE is a happy place for techies like me.
In Tom's words:
Over the years, I've seen CEE's visibility grow steadily — and not just here at home, but around the country.
From technical researchers to engineers or program developers, many of our staff are recognized nationally today for their expertise and the work they've done. CEE is particularly well known both locally and nationally when it comes to "building science," or scientific knowledge related to buildings and architecture.
Our strong reputation and the relationships we've built will be important as energy efficiency continues to evolve in new directions. In coming years, I predict smart homes and smart-home technology will have an especially big impact on the kinds of residential programs and research we become involved with.
My team is responsible for creating effective, secure, and innovative technology solutions for CEE’s staff and clients. The work we do in IT keeps our technology "lights" on, so to speak, but that's not all. In addition to running our own robust network, we also track and protect information that our clients value and build software to help make CEE's research and programs a success.
