Ken Mulryan, operator at Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental, Inc., has been appointed Engineer of the Year by the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 139, District D.
Mulryan works out of Dawes’ Milwaukee branch.
Mulryan first joined the Local 139 in 1986 when starting out as a crane operator and, over time, has become known for his mentoring activities. According to Dave Backman, who heads the communications department of the Local 139, “Ken is highly regarded among the union’s rank and file as someone who will always help younger members learn the craft of proper crane operation in order to advance their careers. He regularly answers questions about the work they do and the equipment they operate.”
“I’m honored and flattered by the whole deal,” Mulryan said. “A lot of guys probably deserve it more than me.”
