Bill Mazzetti - Army

Bill Mazzetti - ARMYOver the last 14 years, Bill Mazzetti has worked hard to rise through the ranks at Rosendin and is currently the Senior Vice President of Engineering and Director of Modular Power Solutions (a Rosendin sister company). Hard work, however, is not something new for Bill. Thirty-four years ago he joined the military and it was those experiences that shaped his professional life today.  

“The military gave me tools to use as a soldier that I use every day in my professional career. The primary one being leadership, especially with mission-focused, driven, high-functioning professionals; attention to detail; and setting clear personal, unit and geopolitical goals for the purpose of unit success. There’s no degree of work stress that could ever be worse than my mission deployments.”

Bill was commissioned into the U.S. Army Reserve in 1984. Following Infantry Officer Basic Course, Airborne School, and Ranger School; Bill returned to civilian life a year later. He continued to serve in assignments up until he was accepted to the 12th Special Forces Group and continued taking courses such as the Special Forces Qualification Course, SERE School, and HALO School. Bill volunteered for subsequent OCONUS in three deployments and finished his military career in the reserves as an aide-de-camp to a general officer.

“Rosendin most closely matches your positive experience in the military and disposes of all the nonsense and politics that comes with military life.  Rosendin also has a knack for identifying, nurturing and promoting the most worthy and capable individuals, regardless of where they came from or who they are.  Rosendin funds training and individual, unit, and organizational support like nothing I’ve ever seen.”

​Thank you, Bill, for your service!

Jerry Garcia - MARINES

Jerry Garcia - MARINESJerry Garcia served in the United State Marines Corp Reserves for six years in Concord, CA. As a Corporal, he learned how to quickly adapt to situations and push to overcome challenges. In 2007, Jerry joined the Rosendin team in San Jose, CA and is now a General Foreman overseeing teams on different types of project sites.
 

“I don’t just have a job, I have a career and with this will always be challenges to overcome. Once the project I have worked on is done being built, the feeling of accomplishment makes you so proud that you want to do it again. A career with Rosendin is ever changing. One job is not like the next. From inside to outside work, offices to data centers and campuses, you will always get a change of season with different tasks.”
 

A quote that speaks true to Jerry each and every day is from Pastor Ron Carpenter, “Leadership, skills, integrity and honesty will earn peoples respect but how you command yourself with attitude is what people will see and remember.  You can have all the talent to get in the room, but your character is what keeps you in the room.”


​Thank you for your service, Jerry!

 


 

Vinnie Serio - NAVY

Vinnie Serio - NAVY

Vinnie Serio - NAVYIn January 1990, Vinnie Serio began his naval career as an enlistee at Naval Base San Diego. He attended A school to become an Aviation Machinist Mate and was deployed to Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, VA. Vinnie was detached to VA-34 (Blue Blasters) which, at that time, flew the A6-E – aka the “sky pig” for its unusual design. He achieved rank of PO3 AD (Petty Officer 3rd Class Aviation Machinist Mate).

While with VA-34, Vinnie was deployed upon the Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69), the first ship deployed to the Red Sea and to navigate the Suez Canal, for what became Operation Desert Shield. Vinnie and his squadron served there for six months and, upon his return, received several medals and was given a General Discharge for his service.

As a civilian, Vinnie returned home to Portland, OR to pursue a career in the electrical trade. “My father had been, at that point, a 30 year member of the IBEW LU 48 and it was a natural transition with my ability to work with the tools. I began my electrical career in 1993 as a panel shop technician, then to Material Handler, then to apprentice in 1995.”

Vinnie has been with Rosendin for 16 years beginning as a Journeyman Wireman, then Steward, Safety Coordinator, General Foreman, and now in his current role as a Superintendent on a project site in Hillsboro, OR.

“What I learned most from being in the military that transferred over to my career is my attention to detail, the ability to follow and carry out orders from superiors, an insane notion to love others and, most importantly, that every person has a voice in the process. I am proud to have served my Country and give thanks to those that have given the ultimate sacrifice in protection of the freedom Americans come to claim without want. To this day I have stayed in touch with a guy from my boot camp. We have stayed in contact all of these years, which speaks to the bond the Service really does create. God Bless America.”

Thank you for your service, Vinnie!

David Saenz - NAVY RESERVES

David Saenz - NAVY RESERVES (Seabees)

David Saenz - NAVY RESERVESDavid Saenz joined Rosendin's Texas team in 2009 through the acquisition of his previous employer, where he had worked for three years. In 2012, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy Reserve (Seabees) and, in addition to being a Support Services General Foreman with Rosendin, he is an Equipment Operator Petty Officer 2nd Class (SCW/EXW).
 

"Being a Reservist has taught me great planning and execution tactics and given me an organizational skill set that I use daily. This has allowed me to grow into a motivator, role model, and leader."
 

As a Reservist, there are times when David must serve his country first, such as in 2015 when he was deployed with an active duty construction battalion overseas.
 

"The Texas team has been very supportive of my role as a reservist. When I was deployed, the Manor, TX office sent me a 75 pound care package to my location in Africa. It was one of the greatest feelings to know that my Rosendin family was supporting me from over 5,000 miles away. It was an absolutely amazing and motivating experience and one I will never forget."
 

Thank you for your service, David!

Erika Fry - ARMY

Erika Fry - ARMY

Erika Fry - ARMYErika Fry joined Rosendin in May 2018 as a Safety Coordinator in Sterling, VA. For four years prior, she was a heavy equipment operator for the Corps of Engineers in the U.S. Army. It was here that Erika was part of the actual earth moving crew and was deployed to Lithuania where she and her squad helped to rebuild a demolition range for Lithuania soldiers to train. Today, as a civilian, Erika's role has changed from operator to safety, but she applies the knowledge and past experiences she gained from her military career each day.

"I take pride on being able to adapt and overcome change when it is least expected. Construction is, for the most part, a male dominated profession. This is something I have been used to, being that I was the only female in my platoon towards the end of my military career. There is a sense of brother and sisterhood out there on the sites, and it all comes from mutual respect regardless of who you are or where you come from, a positive atmosphere, and knowing you have support out there."

In her short time at Rosendin, Erika appreciates the comradery that her project teams have and how everyone works together towards the same goal, which aligns with her time and role in the Army.

"I feel valued and appreciated at Rosendin. Hard work does not go unnoticed and Rosendin places value on their people, their families, their work, and success. If you take pride in your work and have a strong work ethic, with a desire to strive for excellence and be all that you can be, Rosendin provides that ladder and support for you to climb as high as you can go!"

​Thank you, Erika, for your service!
