He is extremely grateful to have learned from the experienced management team including CEO, Mark Hanrahan, as well as the late Steve Smid. Josh has a bottoms-up working knowledge of this business by assisting at on-site aircraft tear downs, packaging inventory, and successfully buying and selling parts. His favorite aspect of MidAmerican is that the culture of the company is reminiscent to that of a clubhouse. It is a competitive environment, however teamwork is absolutely present. The office may appear casual, however there is a great sense of pride and determination.

Moises thanked Josh for the tip!
