Duane joined UNITEC in December 2002 and Otis in 1986. He had previously been the Supervisor of the Mechanical Engineering Group at the Otis Service Center. Duane brings 35 years of Otis/UNITEC experience to his Service & Sales Support role, including four years in new construction field installation and modernization, and the balance in various Engineering support roles.
