I am excited to let you know that we have selected two strong candidates for the Electric Utility Safety and Training Coordinator role. Randy Larson and Mark Zielsdorf will be joining MEUW to provide on-the-job training to lineworkers and other electric personnel.
Randy has more than 25 years’ experience as an apprenticeship lineworker instructor for Chippewa Valley Technical College. Prior to becoming an instructor, Randy was a journeyman lineman for Richland Center Utilities.
Mark has two years’ experience as a job training instructor, including one year with MEUW, beginning in May 2016. Prior to becoming an instructor, Mark was lineman and lineman supervisor for Upper Peninsula Power Company and had previously worked as a lineman for Wisconsin Public Service Corp. in Sturgeon Bay for more than 16 years.
Both Randy and Mark come to MEUW with extensive experience that will be of great value to their work providing training for electric workers across Wisconsin. We are still working to determine their precise start dates, but expect they will both join us early in August.
I appreciate the work of the Safety and Education Committee as we have worked through the process to fill these vacancies on MEUW’s staff. We look forward to having Randy and Mark on our team.
Manager of Safety Services
