Our team has been growing, specifically over the last nine months, and we have two brand new additions to the GCMS family! Please join us in congratulating the proud parents of Canon Jasper Seckinger and Conner James Austin. We think we might just have two new hires in a few years as Conner is already rocking some GCMS apparel (seen below).
New Additions to the GCMS Family
Justin Seckinger and his wife Teil welcomed their son, Canon Jasper Seckinger on January 31st. He came in weighing a healthy 7 lbs and 12 oz. Below is a little more about Justin and his journey to GCMS.
Justin is a Technical Advisor for gas turbines and oversees the work being performed during major and minor inspections. When he isn’t at work, he can be found hunting, fishing (freshwater), or woodworking, which is his newest hobby. If he’s hanging out around home, he likes to garden, and we’re sure he adores spending as much time as he can with Canon!
Justin hasn’t always been in the power industry. He originally started out as an ironworker in Savannah, Georgia when one of his friends, also a former ironworker, got into the power industry. He saw what his friend was doing and thought he might like to give it a try as well! He started working with the millwrights and one thing led to another and he’s now one of our Technical Field Advisors. One of Justin’s favorite things about what he does is having the chance to see different places and things.
For fun, he says, “my wife and I like going to the river, sometimes for fishing and sometimes just for fun. We like to catch a baseball game every now and then. I like doing most anything that involves outdoors (hunting, fishing, riding back roads).”
His favorite sports teams are the Atlanta Braves and the Georgia Bulldogs and his favorite travel destination just so happens to be Atlanta for a Braves game. A random fact about Justin is that by the time he was 12 years old, he had 2 concussions, stitches 5 times, and fell on a kerosene heater. He said his parents knew the emergency room personnel by name. We hope that Canon has the same adventuresome spirit, but is a little less acquainted with the ER! Congratulations Justin and Teil on welcoming Canon into your family.
Teil, Justin, and baby Canon
Joseph Austin and his wife Skyler welcomed their son, Conner James Austin, on February 8th. Conner came in weighing 8 lbs and 1 oz and was welcomed home by his big sister Elizabeth. Stayed tuned to our blog for Joseph’s in-depth employee spotlight.
Canon and Conner are now a part of the GCMS team and we are thrilled for Justin and Teil and Joseph and Skyler and their growing families! Justin and Joseph are both taking some time off to enjoy their roles as fathers and to care for their families. Congratulations!
