Industry Person of the Week- Leeroy Mathias

We are excited to feature Leeroy Mathias as our Industry Person of the Week. Leeroy provides us with the best Empowering Industry Podcast recaps on our LinkedIn posts.

Q: How did you get started working in your field?

Leeroy: My experience so far has been in construction and heavy industrial manufacturing for oil and gas, petrochemicals, and the wastewater industries. I really had no plan to join this sector in particular but when I was looking to first move to an international country I really just went with an opportunity that came my way. Construction, manufacturing, and industrial fabrication just happened to be the place!

Q: What do you love the most about your job? What are you most proud of?

Leeroy: I could easily say one of the common skills such as problem-solving which is really desired in most engineering jobs today is what I love the most but I think that just happens to be part of most jobs around. I love that my job can involve construction and manufacturing of anything honestly. Since this podcast and company that I follow so much specializes in pumps and equipment, in simple words, I oversee projects in construction and manufacturing of anything that houses or requires a pump for operation from chemical injection skids, wellhead control panels in the Oil & Gas industry to heaters and boilers. I also work on brownfield and greenfield maintenance projects and the variety of the scope of work of these is what I love the most that gives anyone ample opportunity for learning!

Q: What advice would you give to someone considering this line of work or new to the field?

Leeroy: Follow your passion but most importantly keep learning. You will always be glad that you learned something that you did not do before or learned to do better in a different way than someone taught you.

Q: Can you talk about a project you recently worked on?

Leeroy: The maintenance, manufacturing, and construction sectors are really very vast and I have always worked on different projects in my experience so far. Every one of them has taught me something different. The last projects that I worked on was a turnaround involving the replacement of an 8″ pipeline and assembly of a positive displacement pump for the national natural gas operating company of Qatar prior to the start of the pandemic.

THANK YOU, LEEROY! WE LOOK FORWARD TO KEEPING UP WITH YOU THROUGH THE #PUMPTALK COMMUNITY!
