At TDS, we know that when it comes to safety, who you work with is important. We believe in the power of our people and their ability to provide innovative and tailored solutions for customers. So periodically, we like you to get to know them a bit better. In this edition of Meet #TeamTDS, we meet Douglas Tomison, a BD guy with field services background and continued integrative work.
1.) Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am married to a beautiful Chilean woman and we have three daughters 23, 21, and 15. I spent twelve years in the Navy as a nuclear power plant operator in submarines and at land based prototypes that are used to train new operators. I am from a small town in Northern California, just south of Sacramento and I moved to Texas in 2013 to commission and startup a 50 MW biomass plant near Beaumont, TX. After I left the Navy, I worked as a Power Plant Manager at several power plants in which they combusted various fuels including biomass, trash, and whole tires.
2.) What do you like to do for fun?
DT: My hobbies are carpentry and wood working as well as home improvement projects
3.) Tell us about your role at TDS.
I am a Business Development Executive but I also assist in operations tasks such as site visits for proposals and large commissioning projects.
4.) What do you like best about working at TDS?
I like that it is an established company but is similar to a young company that is growing and deciding who it is. It is interesting to see the changes that are happening now that will determine who we are in the future.
5.) Tell us something people might not know about you.
Hmmmm….Well, I am an ordained Southern Baptist minister and I am sure that some people will be surprised!
6.) What’s important to you?
Excellence! I believe that if you do something it should be done correctly. Everything that I do, I do for my family and my family deserves the best!
Thank you Doug!
