We think the best thing about our company is our employees! They make us who we are and drive our success. As we continue to blog and expand our online presence, we think one of the best ways for our audience to truly get to know who we are as a company is getting to know our employees on a more personal level.
Our first employee spotlight is dedicated to Micah Malsom who is currently on assignment as a Contract Service Manager in Asia. Micah has had an inspiring journey to joining our team. He grew up on his family farm, which has been in the family since 1902. Before working for us, he worked in many different fields, including serving in the U.S. Marines for 6 years. He began working at GCMS in 2014 as a field engineer and mechanical TA on heavy gas turbines. Below is more about Micah in his own words.
