Q & A with Brandon Promes
Brandon Promes attended Southeast Community College and graduated with an NDT degree. When asked why he picked XCEL, Brandon distinctly remembered his interview with Cole Morehead and Travis Sweetser, both former grads from SCC. He said XCEL stood out because the focus of the interview was about his goals. He said there was no question after he visited the XCEL headquarters in Clifton, KS. He recalled how he felt right at home with everyone in the office and just felt the small town/friendly vibe. He also mentioned the office ladies made chili!

Question – Going back to all jobs you have had in (or outside) the industry, what experience stands out the most?
Brandon – The most memorable experiences that I had within the industry is working in remote areas of the country from Western Texas to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Working in different geographic areas exposed me to different countryside and allowed me to interact with the different cultures.
Question – Outside of work, what are your interests/hobbies?
Brandon – Outside of work I enjoy attending Husker football games along with hunting and fishing. I carry a fishing pole with me when working on the road just in case I have some free time to get a line wet.
