Synergy is spotlighting some of our new Synergy members to help you get to know them a little bit better. We asked each new member some questions so we could learn more about them and their business. Check out below to read all about Renee Fiorelli with Peterson Service Company!

  1. What originally got you interested in your current field of work?

I enjoyed working for the family business in the summer while in High School and College.  When it was time to think about college, I decided to pursue my degree in Mechanical Engineering with the plan to enter the business full time upon graduation.

  1. What do you love most about what you do?

I love helping our customers solve problems with their buildings.  I get the chance to meet a wide variety of people and work in some unique facilities.  I learn so much every day.

  1. Who inspires you?

I am a huge fan of Mel Robbins.  I read her book “The 5 second rule” a few years ago and it really inspired me along with her podcasts and other work.  Her message to countdown from 5 and “do it anyway” really resonates with me.

  1. What is your favorite thing about the area you live in?

I live in a small town comprised of 21 lakes and is only 1.3 square miles.   It’s a tight knit community and we’ve made some really wonderful friends here.  My favorite thing about this town is the fact that we can enjoy the lake as a family and fish, swim and hang out with friends in the summer.

  1. What is your most prized possession and why? 

My most prized possession is my convertible.  It makes me so happy to drive around with the top down when the weather is nice.

  1. What charity or cause are you most passionate about?

My favorite charity is Pink Roses and Teal Magnolias which raises funds to support breast and ovarian cancer research programs for the MD Anderson Cancer at Cooper Hospital.

  1. What is the best thing you got from your parents?

The best thing was my Dad seamlessly transitioning the business ownership and operation over to me ten years ago.  I realize after meeting many other family business owners that I was very fortunate.

  1. What have you learned as a business leader since the COVID pandemic?

I learned the importance of being flexible and able to adapt quickly to the changing environment around us. Also, to always keep the customer’s needs first, not ours.
