When Chris Thomsen first started as a Cat dealer tech, he knew he would be challenged every day by the different types of projects he would face. And that was just fine for Chris, who’s used to working hard every day. But what he didn’t know was where all that hard work would take him.
Chris started his career at a Cat competitor in his hometown in Nebraska, and quickly rose through the ranks. But something told him there was more out there. After 13 years on his first job, he learned about an opening at his local Cat dealer, and decided to take the leap. Suddenly he was working on bigger, more advanced equipment, with bigger responsibilities. Every day offered something new.
While he started as a lead technician, he was promoted to mentor and finally supervisor, which he is today. Even though he’s based in Nebraska, he makes regular trips to other parts of the world in order to service his clients, including the Caribbean and Alaska.
No matter where Chris finds himself, he knows his work is a crucial part of the big picture. That’s because people like Chris keep the equipment running that supports and maintains our way of life.
There’s no class that can train you to give your best effort. That’s something you have to find inside yourself. But when you do, there are opportunities that make your effort worth more. Just ask Chris.
All over the country, our dealers need smart, driven individuals to work with cutting edge technology, for a good wage, while supporting Cat customers in projects that impact your entire community. If you believe the more you put in, the more you get out and know how to work with your head and your hands, maybe you have what it takes to be a Cat dealer tech. Find out more at CatTechJobs.com
