All at Cooper Electrical Services wish to thank and congratulate Robert Sessions for his years of dedicated service and leadership as he retires on December 31, 2020. Robert’s expertise with generator services is unparalleled in the Grand Strand area. His sincere personality and willingness to help others has always been the reason customers trusted him and called for his services.
In the summer of 2017, Cooper was pleased to have Robert join the company as the Generator Services Manager for Cooper’s new start-up division, Cooper Electrical Services. At Cooper he expanded Cooper’s mechanical and electrical services to include generator services for their industrial, commercial, and residential customers.
His work in the generator services industry actually started as service to our country in the U.S. Air Force as an E7 Technical Sargent in the Power Systems Group where he worked installing, operating and maintaining generator systems. After retiring from 23 years of military service, he held several technical positions in the entertainment industry with NMB Grand Prix and Burroughs & Chapin Pavilion over the next five years.
Departing from the entertainment industry to fully use his technical skills, he took on a new challenge in 2003 to become Carolina Temperature Control’s Service Manager in their Generator Services Division. After joining CTC, his ability to provide courteous, professional generator services to industrial, commercial, and residential customers caused CTC’s customer base to swell to over 600 generator service contracts, the most ever held by any generator service company in the Grand Strand area at that point.
When Robert arrived as Cooper, his personality and leadership skills quickly prevailed, and he soon made the Cooper Electrical Services division the leading generator service company in the Grand Strand area.
As for the future, Robert is excited about being able to spend more time with his wife, his sons and daughters-in-law, and his grandchildren.
Thank you, Robert. Enjoy retirement!
