A major portion of Chenega Technical Innovation’s (CTI) warehouse and maintenance activities take place at Custom and Border Protection’s (CBP) Integrated Maintenance Facility (IMF) in Albuquerque, NM; often referred to simply as ABQ.
The ABQ team is a key logistics component for CBP enablement, receiving, and distributing equipment such as camera equipment, sensors, mounting devices, and related consumables to CBP Ports and operations all over the nation. The ABQ team is also responsible for the maintenance of much of the equipment and has a sizable staff of technicians to keep equipment working in harsh border environments.
David Stueven and Anthony Martinez are an instrumental part of CTI’s CBP Integrated Logistics Division Support (ILDS) Team and are both being recognized for demonstrating good citizenship and taking quick action to assist a fellow employee in a time of need.
David is an Electronic Technician for CTI’s CBP ABQ IMF team. He has known his peers at the ABQ IMF facility for a long time and is well-liked among them. He is also described as a knowledgeable and hard-working employee.
In his spare time, David is described as a “tinkering maniac”. He does his own welding, fabrication, machine restoration, and builds his own machines. David has his own electronics lab, and in the past, has made his own band sawmill which is powered by a generator lab. He really enjoys working on old cars/trucks and is also quite the sportsman who loves the outdoors (hunting, travel, etc).
Anthony Martinez is a Maintenance Supervisor and is a well-versed professional in the management of both people and projects. He aids his team to the best of his ability by monitoring his technician’s work-in-progress.
Outside the office, Anthony coaches baseball. He also coached youth baseball at the 12U-18U level from 1998-2007, during which he faced a dozen or so kids that actually made it to the Major League level.
Anthony and his wife did Treatment Foster Care for 44 children from the juvenile detention system over the course of 17 years. According to Anthony, most of his foster children have turned their lives around and keep in touch to this day, which he and his wife find incredibly rewarding.
CTI is extremely proud to have both employees on their team and cannot express just how grateful they are for their consistent support. Thanks for all that you do, David and Anthony!
