In the year 2000, Brian stepped into his role as a new member of FMC, our former corporation. After diligently serving in the US Navy for four consecutive years, Brian pursued his career in manufacturing, holding various positions such as service technician, assembler, and mechanical designer for our company. Now, he is an engineering supervisor.

“I’ve been here for quite a long time, and the reason why is because the people are a bonus. Management is really involved, and because of this, we’re able to develop personal connections with leadership. I want to continue progressing where I am and make positive changes that will benefit our successors in JBT!”

In his appreciation for learning, he is currently in the process of completing his Master’s in Engineering Management, after having accomplished his Bachelor’s in Engineering at Daytona State University. For the past seventeen years, Brian has dedicated himself to serving our both our clients and our employees.

When he first started as an intern for the Finance Department, Diego, began to only scratch the surface of his journey with our corporation. In the spring of 2015, Diego was an international student at Florida Southern College. He initially connected with a professor who introduced him to JBT for an internship possibility. After being hired as a finance intern and graduating with his Bachelors of Science in Business and Economics, Diego later joined our community as our full time Global Financial Analyst.

“JBT has given me lots of opportunities to learn in a variety of areas. Not only is the company growing, but management is composed of leaders who love to develop and to grow its employees. As a company, they value good work.”

During the completion of his undergraduate studies, he learned leadership execution and resource development. He also attributes his student engagement and professional networking for the shaping of his career. Dedicated and goal-oriented, Diego continues to serve JBT and looks forward to cultivating more business experience and knowledge.

“A positive attitude is key. While your knowledge and abilities are important, at the end of the day, a positive attitude will multiply your value as a person. As long as you develop a driven mindset, anything is possible.” -Diego

Nedjada, a new graduate without any previous experience, started as a Designer on the Mechanical Design team, where she worked with customized order design for about one and a half years. She is now on loan to the R&D division and working on a project to develop a new machine. It is going to be one of the biggest projects so far and when it is finished, Nedjada will be responsible for the order design and the equipment of this machine. 

“It has been a great time for me and I have learned more than I´ve learned through 4 years in school. When I started here I was very nervous but all of my colleagues have been very helpful and patient. I feel very lucky to have found such a good workplace and colleagues. It´s been challenging, educational and fun!”

Nedjada has always had a technical interest and been good at math. She decided to study for a Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering because of the focus on the technical design. She soon realized that it was computer-aided product development that caught her interest and decided to take some extra courses to add further focus. Afterwards she studied for a Master’s degree, and a week before finishing her exam, she signed for a job with JBT. Nedjada has now been working in the company for two years. 

“There are great opportunities for personal development here and to change positions within the company. A lot of colleagues have started in my place and are now working in other departments such as R&D, Project management, Customer Service or even in higher positions.” -Nedjada
 

Samriddh, a food engineer, walked into his first day of work at JBT in Lakeland, Florida, in June 2015. After seeing an email posted for a job opportunity on Cornell University’s website, he immediately applied for the opening. After completing his Master’s in Food Engineering at the university, he felt drawn to join the JBT community as it aligned with his passions. From analytical problem-solving to strategic team work implementations, Sam’s training in his field of study carried over into the scope of responsibilities he performs with our company today. 

“As a newcomer, JBT felt appropriately sized. We are not just another American company, but rather, we are an American company carrying a very global culture. Every day, I meet and talk with people from all around the world—Belgium, Parma, Spain. From growing acquisitions to stable stock increase, the company continues to grow, and I love being part of a business that desires continual progression.” 

Sam believes the company’s reign of success is just beginning. 

“You should always think about what you can do for a company. When we discover how we can add value to others, we are able to find purpose in the role we play.” -Samriddh
