NYC’S TEI Group Honors Longtime Employee Lew
NYC’s TEI Group honored mechanic Cindy Lew in March — Women’s History Month in the U.S. — in recognition of her achievements during 15 years with the company. Lew joined TEI in 2006, working as a dispatcher for two years before being promoted to maintenance and repair project coordinator. She remained in that role for 10 years, “acquiring a variety of industry skills and experience,” according to TEI. Desiring to work with her hands, Lew became an elevator mechanic apprentice with International Union of Elevator Constructors Local 1 in 2018 through the city’s Non-Traditional Employment for Women program. She is now accredited in OSHA 30 and 10, scaffolding and CPR, “and continues to serve as a great role model for her peers, as well as young women who are interested in pursuing a career as an elevator mechanic,” according to TEI.
