Employee Spotlight: Chuck Bell
This month, Elek Plumbing would like to introduce one of our service technicians, Chuck Bell. Although he is the newest technician to the Elek Plumbing team, he’s actually been an industry pro for more than 20 years. Described by customers as “very professional and sincere in his work” and “very efficient,” Bell is earning rave reviews – and it’s no surprise given his personal priorities and work ethic.
With 21 years in the air force under his belt, Chuck isn’t scared of hard work and tough obstacles. He spent 18 years teaching martial arts and hand-to-hand combat to the troops that protect us. To round out Chuck’s very versatile life experience, he has also worked for a sheriff department, served as an EMT down south, and spent time on a boxing team in Korea.
These days, Chuck spends his free time with his loved ones. On any given Sunday, you can find Chuck with his family which includes two daughters, three pet dogs and one “great wife” – by his own admission.
From “Chuck is the best!” to “A great company ambassador,” the positive comments about Chuck have been rolling in from all directions. With a passion for providing quality service and a true care for his customers, Chuck is a talented employee that we’re all honored and proud to work with.
