McPhee Honors Employees with “Teddy Awards”

McPhee has a longstanding tradition of recognizing its top talent from both the office and the field. With a history of over 25 years celebrating and recognizing the outstanding men and women of character at McPhee Electric, once again the “Teddy Awards” were presented at our annual McPhee Awards Banquet.

Named after McPhee’s founder, Ted McPhee, this annual award & event has become a tradition and part of our culture to celebrate those individuals who continually strive to make McPhee Electric an outstanding place to work for all of us.

The Awards Banquet was held at the Hartford Marriott Downtown for all office personnel, General Foreman, Foreman, and any field electricians or lineman that have been with the company for at least five years. Dinner & dancing highlighted the night but the main event was the presentation of the Teddy Awards. As is customary, the awards are presented as somewhat of a riddle, causing attendees to guess who may be the recipient after each clue.   This year we are excited to honor three great gentlemen!

Mr. Gregg Lutz, Superintendent, Utility Division
Gregg shows integrity in his work and is known for doing it right the first time.  He works vigorously to execute work plans, organize tools and equipment as well as position proper crews needed to execute our utility work.  Additionally, Gregg has a keen eye for safety and has been an active member of our McPhee Safety Committee.

Mr. Josh Cockerham, Warehouse Manager
Josh plays a key role in supporting of all of our projects across our divisions.  He is in high demand for his knowledge of tools, motors and equipment.  He is able to use his mechanical aptitude to bring solutions to solve tough situations and is clever in developing pre-fabrication applications for large projects.

Mr. Tom Reidy, Estimator
Tom’s commitment to our organization has never wavered from his time in the field, through Project Management even far from home, and now as a key utility estimator.  He knows the ins and outs of developing utility proposals and has great expertise in GIS substations.  Though his focus is typically in the utility sector, Tom is a great help with commercial projects as well.

Bravo to all Teddy Award recipients!
