ESOG Employee Spotlight: Keith Cunha
As with most jobs, it pays to have connections. That’s exactly how Keith Cunha landed his position at Engineered Solutions of Georgia. One day, he was listening to the radio while driving his truck and heard an advertisement that ESOG was looking to fill some roles. Keith already knew co-owners Jay Eastland and Luis Cuveas and trusted them, so he reached out to them and was hired to handle warranty, service and fleet management.
Keith has served as Service & Warranty Manager for 16 months and counting. In a nutshell, he services existing customer maintenance needs and warranty concerns, as well as oversees the care and maintenance of the company’s 40 trucks. During a typical workday, you’ll find him organizing tech jobs and checking on production trucks the first three hours of the day. During the middle of the day Keith is out seeing customers. And at the end of the day, he spends time preparing paperwork and quotes for customers he has seen that day.
Since coming to work at ESOG, Keith attributes the company to promoting career development “simply by giving me the opportunity to challenge myself with work that I’ve never done before,” he says. Keith values ESOG’s integrity, determination and loyalty, and especially loves the freedom that his job yields. His favorite project has been to make the service warranty department financially self-sustaining.
When it comes to balancing work life and family life, Keith has a great approach. He works at ESOG Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. At 5 p.m., his workday is over and he commits the rest of the evening to his family.
In his free time, you can find Keith riding his motorcycle, spending time with his grandchildren or visiting his beach house in the Outer Banks of North Carolina with his family.
Speaking of family, Keith’s wife and four children know how to balance fun, family life and successful careers. As an executive chef, ship captain, executive VP, attorney and pharmaceutical sales rep, Keith’s family works as hard as he does, but also plays hard by enjoying a myriad of outdoor activities and cheering on the Braves, Falcons and Hawks.
If there’s one thing that may surprise you about Keith, it wouldn’t be his hard work ethic. Instead, it’s that he’s originally from New York and his first-ever job was being a clean-up kid at a Donut Shop there.
