Jon Schouten has worked with Remuda for almost 2 years now, so we decided it’s time for everyone to get to know him a little better. After tying him to his office chair, we finally had a chance to ask him some questions.
“My hometown is…”
I was born in Surrey B.C. and later moved to Yarrow B.C. for a few years, before landing in Calgary, AB. Alberta has been my home for almost 20 years.
I went to BCIT for my first 2 years of electrical school and then completed my 3rd, 4th and Masters level at SAIT in Calgary, along with a number of different courses in sales, marketing, and management.
I started working at 4 Star Electric and was there for 17 years, working my way up from apprentice electrician to site foreman, then service manager, and finally company trainer.
“I love working at Remuda because…”
We really do have a great all-around team – from management to the crew members in the field! Many of our customers have said this as well, which makes my job a lot easier and the customers’ experience more enjoyable. I enjoy helping a client put together the plans for their building, working on a solution that will work for them. I want all customers to be completely satisfied with their buildings.
“People would say…”
I’m knowledgeable, efficient, and seek to serve the customer well. My kids and wife would probably say I’m a bit of a perfectionist, but I like to see things done properly and right the first time.
“When I’m not working, I’m probably…”
Hanging out with my beautiful wife and three kids. We enjoy getting out to the mountains on my quad, camping, going to church, and spending time with friends.
