“Southern States is a unique company in that it focuses on user needs in the power industry.  This offers opportunities to come up with unique ideas to solve these solutions that are needed.  Many of the larger companies provide only standard solutions which becomes a bit boring.  I have found this needs focused approach to be most exciting, challenging, and rewarding.  I have been at big companies with the traditional approach and hence, this is why I am here.”
