Lee Telin joined Caloris earlier this year as our Sales & Service Manager—Membrane Systems. Get to know him here.
Caloris: How did you get involved in your field?
Lee: I was hurt in an industrial accident and went back to school for a technical degree. My first job was with a small filtration company, then on to an international equipment firm, which kept me in this industry for over 35 years.
Caloris: What do you enjoy most about working with customers?
Lee: I like the interaction with people and to be able to work together on projects and/or to solve problems together.
Caloris: You are based in Wisconsin. What do you like most about living/working there?
Lee: I grew up on a small dairy farm and it taught me a lot about work ethics. Being a farmer is a round-the-clock job. Cows do not take the weekends or holidays off!
Caloris: What are your hobbies? Anything else fun you’d like to share?
Lee: Believe it or not I enjoy gardening, flowers, shrubs, vegetables. I also enjoy golf, but don’t play as much as I would like.
Caloris: What’s your favorite cheese?
Lee: Blue cheese or a Stilton blue and cheddar cheese
Caloris: What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Lee: Just plain old vanilla. I buy it from a small ice cream factory in my area. No low fat ice cream for me.
Caloris: Anything else you’d like to share about yourself?
Lee: I was at point in my career when I could have just retired, but I missed the interaction with people and working with them and helping them.
