Advanced Energy is excited to welcome Kevin Sawyer as an energy consultant. Kevin grew up in Wake County, North Carolina, and earned degrees in automotive system technology from Wake Technical Community College and mechanical engineering from East Carolina University.
Kevin has always enjoyed tinkering and understanding the inner workings of technology. After a few years in the automotive industry, he realized he wanted to learn more about why and how equipment functions the way it does, and pursuing engineering seemed like an ideal path forward.
When the position at Advanced Energy opened up, Kevin saw it as a great way to use his existing knowledge while expanding his expertise. It would be an opportunity to challenge himself, grow professionally and learn about electric motors.
In his new role, Kevin will be dividing his responsibilities between assisting in the motor lab (handling, testing and logging motors) and conducting commercial and industrial energy assessments at facilities across North Carolina.
When he isn’t working, Kevin enjoys traveling, cooking and eating different foods, and spending time with his wife and daughters (along with shepherding them to their various athletic activities).
Kevin’s prior professional and educational experience makes him a great fit for Advanced Energy. He is eager to contribute his knowledge and skills, and the team is happy to have him on board.
