Meet our District Energy Manager Market Manager, Natalie Ganesh.
Natalie Ganesh’s passion and drive on a professional and personal level inspires us. Here’s what she had to say about her experience at Armour Valve.
“My career with Armour Valve started out as a temporary contract in the Operations department back in 1999. I fell in love with the people and company culture and have been a full-time employee ever since. Over the years, there have been several opportunities to develop my skills and pursue advancement, based on my own interests and company goals, and I have held many positions including Inside Sales Supervisor, Customer Care Manager and most recently was encouraged to launch a new line of business in District Energy as the DE Market Manager.
Our management understands the importance of work/life balance, flexibility, and equal opportunity for growth and development for all employees and there is no shortage of support and mentorship from the men and women in our company. I am very proud to be a woman working successfully in an industry that has been largely dominated by men, and I have never found that being a woman limited my success.”
