They say it’s the quiet ones you should watch out for – well Todd Morrison is no exception.

He may be quiet and reserved, but he is a talented master of his trade! Todd has spent the last 11 years of his 30-year career with Hermanson, starting as a Journeyman and now a Sheet Metal Foreman. When Todd was 10 years old, he was helping clean up job sites in his residential community in California and it was suggested to him that he may be interested in working in the trades. Once the idea got in his head, he never considered any other career path. After high school, he attended Universal Technical Institute in Arizona and graduated with a degree in Air Conditioning, Refrigeration, Heating and Solar Energy in 1985. In 1995, he started his own residential sheet metal and service company and began his lifelong career in the mechanical construction industry.

As one of Hermanson’s Sheet Metal Foremen for the Major Projects division, Todd specializes in hospital work. Most recently, Todd has completed projects at Swedish Hospital, Seattle Children’s Hospital, and Good Samaritan. While he considers himself a “hospital guy,” his favorite Hermanson project to date is the tenant improvement work for Redfin at Hill7 because it gave him a chance to break out of his comfort zone and work with a different crew in a new environment.

With the personal philosophy of “Do what you say and hold yourself and others accountable,” Todd embodies the Hermanson core value of Character Counts. Along with his rock-solid work ethic, Todd’s strong technical skills, as well as his dedication to 100% customer satisfaction have made him a highly sought-after partner by his co-workers, general contractors, and building owners.

Outside of work, Todd coaches and plays on a unified softball team for the Special Olympics. He got involved with the organization seven years ago at the suggestion of a friend. As a lifelong softball player, it is a natural fit! His team is set to go to nationals this year – they are just waiting to hear if they qualify. He enjoys helping the kids “get their feet on the ground” and work towards their goals.

Thanks Todd!

Todd is also a family man. He and his wife Nashira have four children – Kayla, 29, Nick, 25, Andrew, 18, and Emily, 8. Their youngest, Emily, is involved in cheerleading. Andrew, a recent high school graduate, is considering a career in the mechanical construction industry! In the summer, the Morrisons spend most of their time with their children on their ski boat, inner tubing and kneeboarding on Kitsap Lake.
