Male Rising Star Award winner, Joshua Eftimovski, believes it is important to continually challenge the status quo.
The project manager at Hirotec is always striving for excellence
“Doing something a certain way simply because that is how it has always been done is no way to operate, we need to find new ways to improve the way we work,” he said.
“We are lucky because we work in such a dynamic industry and technology is always changing.
“As an industry, we need to work collaboratively to move forward, and find ways to increase efficiency.”
It’s not surprising to learn that Eftimovski is passionate about technology.
Hirotec has always been a company well known for being an early adopter of building technologies, standards and service delivery methodologies.
The Australian-owned company has Customer Service Centres for technical support as well as a national service centre for 24x7 breakdowns.
Eftimovski said it has been an absolute honour winning this award.
“Winning this accolade has increased my love for this industry,” he said.
“I have been lucky enough to work on both sides of the industry from service to construction.
“These experiences have really helped me evolve since my time on the tools.”
Eftimovski is continuing to develop his professional career and is working hard to build solid relationships with clients.
When asked about the qualities that make a rising star, Eftimovski was quick to reply.
“Flexibility, in my role it is critical,” he said.
“I also think it is important to be transparent and to collaborate with others to get the job done.
“I interact with so many trades and so many different people that consultation and working as a team is everything.”
Once again ABB has sponsored this award to help identify the industry’s next generation of leaders.
HVAC segment manager for drives at ABB, Paul Burrows, said the company is proud to be supporting these award winners on their professional journey.
