02/06/2012 ~ Dale Finigan has been named Keys Energy Services’ (KEYS) Outstanding Employee of the First Quarter for 2012.

Finigan has worked for the Utility for 25-years and currently serves as Director of Engineering and Control. Prior to his current position, he held various supervisory positions related to substations and the Transmission & Distribution (T&D) system. In his current position, he is responsible for both the Engineering Section and the System’s 24-hour Control Center.

Finigan said what he finds most rewarding about his job is “seeing that all the hard efforts of KEYS’ staff that have gone into making reliability improvements are paying off.” He went on to add that one of his favorite occurrences at KEYS is, “our employee’s unified commitment and dedication to the community after a major storm to restore power”

The Employee of the Quarter Committee selects an employee four times a year for this award. Employees are considered for the award after being nominated by their peers and/or supervisors. Final selection of the outstanding employee is based on several factors, which include attendance, attitude, efficiency, initiative, and job performance, among others.

Finigan was born and raised in Key West and is a graduate of Key West High School. He also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, and a Masters Degree in Electrical Power Systems, from the University of South Florida. He lives in Bay Point with his wife Lesley and two children, Bobby (17) and Kaitlyn (8). In his free time Finigan enjoys camping and RVing with friends and family.

The Utility Board will recognize Finigan as the Outstanding Employee of the First Quarter for 2012 during their regular meeting on Wednesday, February 8th. His name will be engraved on a perpetual plaque that hangs in the William Arnold Service Building lobby and he will receive an extra day off. As part of his award he also received a $250 bonus, however, rather than keep it he opted to donate it to KEYS’ Employee Activities Committee. The Committee is a volunteer, self-funded group of employees that help to organize employee morale boosting activities throughout the year at no cost to KEYS or its customers.
