SunHarvest Solar is made up of people who come from a variation of cities, states, and have unique life stories. As a diverse team, we find that it adds to the success of our company. We might be a little biased, but we have reason to believe that we have some of the most selfless and hardworking team members in the state of Arizona. Today, we’d like to give thanks to the few of us who not only presently serve our company, but also previously served our nation and endured a lot of sacrifice to be the men they are today.
Our thanks go out to Gary Held and Mike Makley.
Gary is our Sales and Marketing Manager. Gary served in the United States Air Force from 1972-1980 and was a medic for four years as well as an Air Force Recruiter for four years.
Mike is our Production Superintendent. Mike served 6 years in the US Army at Ft. Hood, Texas with a tour in Bosnia from Oct 28, 1997 - Oct 28, 2003. He was a young private during his tour there and he worked with satellite communications between 5 different posts. Mike also served as the Commander’s driver, which allowed him to travel to many places throughout Bosnia and Yugoslavia.
Mike says, “This was a great experience as it gave me the opportunity to work with soldiers from many different countries. When I returned home to Ft. Hood, I was able to work myself into a position of leadership where I had 3 amazing soldiers working with me operating our very own Tactical Satellite Communications Terminal. Being a soldier is one of the many things that shaped me into the man I am today. A great experience I wouldn't change for the world.”
We are so grateful to have you both on board with us at SunHarvest Solar! Be sure to thank your veterans today!
