Sounds like a lot of fun! If you come to visit us at WINCO, be sure to stop and say ‘Hi’ to Shane! Stay tuned, next month we will meet up with another great employee!

I began my modeling career on the WL12000 panels. Since then, I have been on all of the industrial “Big Dog” portable generators and make appearances on our literature as well as our wearable merchandise. I have enjoyed my modeling career and will continue, but I wanted to branch out into the business consulting field. My wonderful family at WINCO have given me the opportunity to write public commentary about what the company is up to! I am very excited for this new adventure and hope you find my information helpful!

I’ll be in touch,
