    It Runs in the Family: Meet The Naranjos

    The #PDIFamily-first mentality runs deep at Power Design, making it one of the vibrant aspects that sets our culture apart in the industry. Meet Austin-based father-son duo who epitomize this family-first motto: esteemed Senior Superintendent Walter Naranjo Sr. and his son, Walter Naranjo Jr., a dedicated Field Engineer. Together, we’re building more than buildings, we're building long-lasting careers that unite generations — see for yourself through the Naranjos' story. 


    Walter Sr. started his career with Power Design 23 years ago, even before welcoming his namesake to the world. Since Senior could remember, Walter Jr. was always trying on his Power Design safety vest and hard hat after he got home from the job site — that’s when Senior knew he wanted his son to join him at Power Design one day.  


    After moving around to different markets for Power Design, Walter Sr. and his family settled in Austin, Texas - a brand-new, growing Power Design market at the time. With Power Design growing into the force it is in Austin, the father-son duo is making its skyline their legacy and doing it together.


    "To have that father/son relationship here at the workplace, it's something that I never thought I would experience, but I wouldn't have it any other way," Walter Jr. said.


    Our best of the best are empowering the future generation of the workforce by teaching them the Power Design way — for Walter Jr., who better than his own father to mentor him both personally and professionally?  "Now I get to spend more time with him, and I’m so happy that he joined me to build his career at Power Design," Walter Sr. said. The bond and admiration between these two is an inspiration to anyone — see for yourself. ⬇️ 




     "I look forward to seeing many more child and parent dynamics — Power Design has been around for more than 30 years, so it’s only a matter of time until we see more families working together," Walter Jr. said.


    From our boots on the ground like Senior and Junior to support staff at headquarters on the GRID, our Power Design family is dedicated to leaving their mark on the industry. If you want to leave your mark on the industry like the Naranjos have, apply here.
