2020 Employee of the Year

The 2020 Electra Employee of the Year Award Goes To…

Each year, Electra recognizes an outstanding worker for their annual Electra Employee of the Year Award. The award recognizes those who showcase excellence, professionalism, leadership, team spirit, flexibility, and reliability.

This year, we proudly nominated team member Thomas Ginnane, General Foreman, for the 2020 Electra Employee of the Year Award and he won!

Tom has been with Hellman Electric for 16 years, and during that time we have seen first-hand his work ethic and attention to detail. This not only makes him the perfect winner for this award, but an incredible asset of the Hellman Electric team.

As part of his role, he has utilized his leadership and excellence as a field operations manager for the Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) Bridge Design/Build Security project for our field team.

RFK is constructed of three separate bridge structures, including a-mile-long elevated roadway that connects the boroughs of Queens, The Bronx, and Manhattan through Wards and Randalls Islands. It is unlike any other facility in New York City and we knew that we needed a leader to effectively manage the team, navigate the systems, and effectively oversee all production on the project; Tom was an easy pick.

More than a skilled electrician, it was Tom’s leadership that took this project to the next level. His ability to balance Hellman’s objectives, the demanding expectations of the client, and maintaining the high level of standards of his IBEW Local (Local Union #3) is what makes Tom so widely respected – not only by his field team and Hellman Electric as a whole, but to our customers as well.

2020 was a challenging year in history, but Hellman Electric was and is lucky to have Tom on our side. Between his strength of character, leadership, and hard work, to say we chose the right person for the job would be an understatement.

Congratulations, Tom!
