Director of Encompass Door & Awning Division

Sam studied at the College of Southern Maryland on a Co-Op with Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant. He graduated with his degree in Nuclear Engineering Mechanical and Electrical Technologies. He also graduated from the Dominion Technical Training Center in Richmond, Virginia. With 10 years of experience in the generation industry, he has experience working with heavy equipment and offshore shipping maintaining large motors and turbines. In his spare time, he would do construction projects and work with a local marine company doing marine construction and boat lifts. He decided the Generation industry and the stringent schedule weren’t ideal for his young family. Deciding to start Encompass Marine with Gene utilizes all of his skills and experience. Sam greatly enjoys working with clients and works diligently to deliver the best results possible.
