MSD is proud to nominate Mike D’Amico as the 2021 Craft Professional of The Year. Mike has been employed at MSD since 2003 and has excelled at his position as a Plumbing/Piping Foreman. Mike has twenty years of total trade experience and eighteen of those years committed to the commercial/industrial plumbing and pipefitting side. Mike is capable of leading any size job with any size crew and is currently involved in the Miami Valley Career Center project in Englewood, Ohio. This is a three-year project that is over twenty-two million dollars in revenue, therefore MSD needed a foreman that will be able to handle any delays or construction obstacles that are thrown his way. Mike is a valued leader in our company and respected by all his peers as a hard-working and very organized Foreman who excels at planning and executing large amounts of high-quality work production and adds a personal touch to every job and relationship to each contractor.
Mike strives toward total quality and innovation of new tools and processes to utilize cost savings and to achieve the best results possible. Mike has a long list of certifications and accomplishments such as Licensed Journeyman Plumber, Certified welder (structural, MIG, TIG, and Arc) section 9 welding certification, Vectren Natural gas trained and gas pipe fusion certified, Class A CDL, Heavy equipment certified operator, Medical Gas/Brazer certified (NITC), State of Ohio Backflow tester certified, Confined Space entry certified, and Qualified Rigging certification. Even with so much responsibility, Mike still finds time to help mentor and teach all new apprentices in the field and also teaches in MSD’s classroom for our apprenticeship program.
One of my favorite attributes of Mike is the fact that he is equally devoted to being a great husband to his wife and father to his three children. Mike is heavily involved in spending every possible minute with his family involving sports, camping, fishing, hiking, boating or just playing games and laughing. People like Mike are hard to find, and I am grateful that he is part of our team at MSD and that we are able to be part of his life. Mike is a former recipient of an Eagle award for the Dayton Corrections Institute (Women’s Prison Project), but I truly hope you will consider Mike as The Craft Professional of the Year. Thank you for taking the time to recognize his achievements and potential now and in the future.
