Cathy joined the Status family in March, 1992.  Cathy loves helping employees with payroll inquiries.  Do you have a lost, stolen, washed, or burned payroll cheque? No problem!  I doubt you can come up with something she hasn’t heard in the last 25 years!  Cathy is most happy when planning our Company children’s parties.   

Murray Pauls,  Purchasing Manager

Stefan Stoj, Master Electrician

Stefan is a tried and true long-term employee.  Stefan is handling a multitude of YVR projects, more than you can shake a stick at!  A Status Employee since June 1992, Stefan is an exemplary leader and highly respected colleague.

Udo Czerwinski, Chief Project Foreman

Udo is renowned for his commitment to thoroughly training our apprentices, they are the future of Status Electric.  Under Udo’s guidance and direction, the Okanagan Correction Centre project was a big success.  Since joining the Status team in February, 1988, Udo has made a positive impact and we look forward to his future contributions and mentorship.

Ken Martz, Chief Project Foreman

Ken, noted for being the strong silent type, has shown his commitment to taking pride in excellence in all the projects he has managed since October, 1991!  Notably, Mount Milligan was a great success under his leadership and management. 

Trent Hyswick, Chief Project Foreman

Starting with Status in July 1990, Trent has experience and expertise that is respected in the field.  Trent is admired and highly valued for his skills and dedication.  Trent always comes through when we need a Leader for an out of town project, such as East Kootenay Hospital and Site C Hydro Project.

Art Merritt, Senior Project Manager

Art has been with the Status Team the longest, since 1986.  He is an integral part of our past and has added strength to our future through his mentorship of our Project Managers and Foremen. 

Spending twenty-five years with the same company is an extraordinary achievement and it speaks volumes of greatness about these individuals.  It is indeed rare in  today’s competitive business environment and it takes an exceptional individual to achieve this goal. It is with immense gratitude that I thank you. 

You are honoured and highly appreciated.

With great respect,
