Jimmie Petsel, Socket's You-Make-The-Difference Winner for April!
Congratulations to Jimmie Petsel, Field Services Technician, on winning Socket’ s You-Make-The-Difference Award for April!
Jimmie acts as the “eyes and hands” of our business center – he’s constantly on the road and off visiting customers' offices in order to find and test any physical issues, as well as handling installations for our new business customers.
“Jimmie goes above and beyond to help the customers and his coworkers,” said a coworker who nominated him for the award.
"Exemplar! Enough said," said another.
Born and raised in Columbia, MO, Jimmie is a proud graduate of Hickman High School and enjoys cooking in his free time – he’s also our resident chef (literally - with an associate’s degree in culinary arts!) After hearing about Socket from his friend and fellow field tech, Allen St. John, Jimmie decided to apply, and is now about to celebrate his second anniversary here.
“The people I work with make this job fun and entertaining,” said Jimmie. “The fact that anyone I might be speaking to on the phone, that I can go back to the office and talk to them in person… you don’t get that at some places I’ve worked. It adds a lot!”
