Tower Engineering Professionals


Mike Gardner
Instructor
Years with ENSA: 2 years
Mike Gardner has his A.A. in Architectural Technology from North Carolina Community College and his B.S. in Civil Engineering from North Carolina State University. He has been with TEP for 15 years and he is currently the V.P. of the structures division. Before TEP, he designed log cabin homes for about 3 years. What drew Mike to the working at heights industry is the chance to climb telecommunications towers and cell phone towers instead of sitting behind a desk. In his free time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, and spending time with his family.

Matt Collins
Instructor
Years with ENSA:
The thought of climbing towers excites Matt far more than sitting in an office and that’s exactly why he began working with TEP. In June 2016, he took over the safety management role for TEP. Matt’s always been interested in rock climbing and the thought of getting paid to climb, and still be able to do engineering work, enticed him.

Trent Johnston
Instructor
Years with ENSA:
In 2004, Trent began his working-at-heights career. Ever since he was young, he’s been an avid rock climber {he’d climb about 4-5 days a week!}. Trent was also quite the traveler. The opportunity to combine his love for traveling and climbing was exactly what he was looking for. With 12 years of telecom experience, he now manages a team of 65 people. Trent enjoys spending time with his daughters, hunting, fishing, and sometimes rock climbing.
