Greg Shank, Facilities Engineer

Greg is working as a facilities engineer for Clear Blue and comes from a background that involves many applicable skills suitable for this role. He has a long history of working with electrical circuits, including security systems, sound equipment and radio communication equipment as well.

Greg started out in the construction industry and learned many aspects of construction while on the job. He quickly become aware of the large amounts of waste that can come out of construction projects and began to think of ways to reuse some of the discarded articles, turning them into art projects and yard décor. That is now one of his favorite hobbies – creating something useful out of “junk”.

He loves to travel the world and go on hikes with his wife, loves to cook and eat regional dishes and enjoys meeting people in far away places. And, being a multi-instrumentalist, Greg gets to play music with strangers, which really puts the world into perspective. There’s only one planet and we all have to share it!
