  • Skylar Dossenbach

Site Superintendent, Renewable Energy Group, Rosendin

“I choose to work in construction so that I can build a quality product I am proud of, with others I have trained and mentored to be the best they can be.”

Skylar Dossenbach started her 19-year career with an IBEW Local 11 apprenticeship in Los Angeles and now oversees some of the largest renewable energy projects in the country, creating unique solutions to tricky construction challenges along the way.

In the final year of her apprenticeship, Dossenbach joined San Jose, California-based Rosendin, building schools in California and quickly grew into the role of foreman. In 2015, she was promoted to general foreman and shifted to Rosendin’s Renewable Energy Group. For the last four years, Dossenbach has worked as a site supervisor in Texas on projects like the Aktina Renewable Power Project and Danish Fields Solar Mechanical Project.

Working in renewables has required Dossenbach to adapt constantly, moving from one project to the next with new crews, new equipment, new vendors and new challenges at every site. She’s crisscrossed the country setting up solar facilities in more than a dozen states, building lasting relationships with unions, owners and workers along the way.

Dossenbach demonstrates a genuine care for her team, her nominator said, advocating for and empowering them to take the next career step and placing them in positions where they will succeed. She also shares the joy of building with middle schoolers through the Rosendin Foundation’s Camp Build in Austin, Texas.
