Mike Valpredo

Position: Leader

Years at Dominion: 42 years in March 2019

Job Description: I’ve had many different jobs during my time. I was hired in as a pipefitter, became a service technician, then became a leader. I became the Fluid Fill Supervisor after a few years as a leader. I also worked as the Service Manager for Fluid Fill and Fluid Fill Project Manager. About 18 months ago I was approached by upper management and asked if I would be comfortable hanging up my Project Manager hat and going back down to the floor to help out in the fluid fill area. This was to help out in the fluid fill area to become a leader once again and help train the young guys coming up. That is in fact where I am now.

Carl Semble

Position: Product Line Manager

Years at Dominion: 2
