With a mechanical engineering degree and FE Certificate, Vince Brice has the right experience and know how. Recruited right out of college, Vince recalls one of his favorite projects was to help build a working electrical car, with a functional air foil design, dubbed ‘The Urban Vehicle’. Vince is eager to see if this project and what he studied in college will help in his future at GK and he’s looking forward to not sitting behind a desk, but helping GK equipment come to life.

 

Kyle Blank is a Universal Technical Institute grad with a wealth of experience in the auto and diesel industries. Kyle also studied Preventative Maintenance and is in the Marine reserves.
