He credits his grandfather for having the greatest influence on his life.
“My grandfather fled Yugoslavia after World War II to seek a better life,” Kristian says. “After spending five years in a refugee camp in Italy, he was finally approved to immigrate to the U.S. He settled in northern New Jersey and became a painter. He instilled in me from a young age the importance of a good education, discipline, and hard work. One day, I want to own a place in my grandfather’s village in Croatia and spend the summer there with my family.”
For now, he’s focused, both personally and professionally, on making the world a better place.
“I am proud to help make a difference in areas that are important to me,” he says. “I’m especially proud to work for a company that’s helping address worldwide energy poverty by providing cleaner, more reliable, and more affordable energy.” When he’s not helping his team make the world a cleaner place, he’s giving back to his community. “I serve on the school board of my parochial primary school, have invested in an early-stage, women-owned business in New York City, and am a long-standing donor to the U.S. Military Academy,” he says.
We’re proud to have Kristian’s positive energy powering our team and company!
