This quarter’s Employee Spotlight is…
Victor Butler – Field Inspector, Programs
1. Where did you grow up? Where do you reside now?
I grew up in Paterson, New Jersey and I now reside in Passaic, New Jersey.
2. What did you want to be when you grew up (when you were a child)?
I always wanted to be a firefighter when I was a child because they are like superheroes.
3. What guided you into the energy efficiency industry?
I stumbled upon the energy efficiency industry in 2007. It just so happened I saw an ad for an inspector job so I filled out the application and they called, hired me, and trained me for the job and that’s how I arrived in the energy efficiency industry.
4. What does a day in the life of Victor at PSD look it?
I get up at 6 a.m. and have a cup of coffee, then I start looking over the inspection reports for today’s inspection. Then I have to make sure all my equipment is working. After that, I call my customer to make sure they are still available for the inspection and it just continues but I love the challenge of the job.
5. What is your favorite PSD-related memory?
When I was onboarding we use to meet in the mall and go over paperwork during our lunchtime. It was around this same time 3 years ago in November.
6. What do you do when you aren’t at work? Any interesting hobbies?
I go to the movies with my family a lot and I love to visit friends and family on the weekends and play basketball.
7. What is your favorite holiday?
I enjoy all the holidays the same but my birthday is on 12/17 so Christmas was when I got most of my gifts.
8. Favorite travel destination? Or dream travel destination?
Florida to visit my Grandparents is my favorite but my dream vacation would be a cruise around the world for a year.
9. Favorite musician/genre?
I like jazz and old-school rap.
10. What’s the top item that is still on your bucket list? Have you checked off anything cool or fun?
To jump off a plane is still on my bucket list. I haven’t checked anything off my bucket list as of yet.
11. What is an interesting thing about yourself that not a lot of people know?
One interesting thing about me is that I’m a grandfather of three with one on the way from three of my four kids.
Thank you, Victor! We really appreciate you taking the time to do this and are excited to have people get the chance to know a little more about you and your contributions to our PSD Team.
