PowerSpot: Nate Venner-VanSleet
This is PowerSpot, Plug Power’s monthly blog series where we highlight the Plug Power employees who inspire us and, we hope, will inspire you, too. Today, we’re hearing from Nate Venner-VanSleet, Plug Power’s Production Supervisor for Fuel Cell Stacks and Hydrogen Skids.
I help manage workflow in two different departments. One area is building the fuel cells needed for our customers’ forklifts, the second area is building the hydrogen infrastructure needed for sites to be able to use Plug Power fuel cells.
I love that every day is something new, be it a new employee, product, or project. I have always found that managing teams through obstacles and hurdles to achieve a goal is both exciting and fun.
That’s a tough one. I’d go for being invisible. There’s so much more you can learn if no one can see you.
That it is ever changing. I love the fact that it’s becoming more and more accepted across the globe as a cleaner fuel. I also enjoy watching the evolution of the current fuel cell going from graphite to metal…. that is one achievement after another.
Everyone deserves a second chance. We are all human and full of emotions.
That’s a tough one to answer. My honest answer is that I’d love to be my own boss in a material handling business.
Thank you, Nate, for allowing us to get to know you and for being such an integral part of Plug Power!
