Professional Profile

Hi! I am Engineer Dee.

First and foremost, welcome to my website EngineerDee.com! Feel free to browse and read my articles, but in this part I introduce myself and my work.

I am Engr. Dion Greg Reyes, or simply Dee, a solar business professional working in the central business district of Makati, Philippines. As of writing, my line of work is in the technical sales for a Japan-based multinational solar panel manufacturer, with background in digital publishing & marketing as a content editor and in construction as a registered civil engineer.

Prior to joining my current company, I acquired my government certification as a solar installer and joined one of the biggest solar companies in the country as a sales engineer of its Residential Rooftop Group, covering the National Capital Region. Briefly, I was assigned to the Product Support Group to meet the demand of the growing after-sales concerns.

Right now, on my spare time, I am expanding my skills set by self-studying to be a data scientist. I have been granted a slot in the SPARTA Program of the science & technology arm of the government.

Considering all the skills I developed over the years, including the one I am currently learning, my direction as a professional is towards the business development of solar. It is my personal goal and advocacy to accelerate the solar energy adoption.

If you are a recruiter, you can download my resume at the tail end of this page. Below is an overview of my Skills Expertise, Work Experience, and Speaking Engagements as a solar business professional.

SKILLS EXPERTISE

SOLAR TECHNICAL SALES (B2B & B2C)

Proof of my technical expertise in solar is my government certification after completing the PV Installation Training and passing the installers’ accreditation. To add to that my experience in trading solar panels in my current work (B2B), in selling installation packages in my first solar employer (B2C), and in marketing of products digitally, I see myself as an asset to the business development of any solar company.

CONTENT FOR DIGITAL PUBLISHING & MARKETING

It takes more than just a writer to be able to create engaging digital content. Backed with an experience in digital publishing and marketing, I am able to display this skill through my growing Facebook page and this website. Such expertise could be useful to other businesses who are still unable to adapt in this digital age.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Technical Sales Engineer for Solar Panels

July 2019 to Present
Panasonic Manufacturing Philippines Corporation, Life Solutions Group
Makati City, Philippines
Office- and Field-Based

As the one in-charge for the sales channel expansion under the B2B business model, my main task is to look for potential partners/solar installers who will use Panasonic solar panels. Part of what I do as well is financial and management reporting, sales forecasting, delivery monitoring, and coordinating with marketing for our activities. Other than these, I do visual structural assessment upon request of our client’s end-users if necessary, and conduct solar awareness seminars to various organizations.

Sales Engineer for Residential Rooftop Sales

July 2018 to June 2019
Solar Philippines Island Corporation, Residential Rooftop Sales
Makati City, Philippines
Field-Based

Mostly outside doing site visits and client meetings, I am driven to close accounts in the residential level following the B2C business model. I took effort in lead generation through social media, solar awareness seminars, and flyering to increase pipeline, although the company provides quality leads. I am able to contribute in expediting our interaction with clients by developing a Solar FAQs Sheet and Site Assessment Sheet. When the demand for after-sales concerns is high, I am given special assignment since I have a technical background with solar installations.

Content Editor for Digital Publishing & marketing

January 2016 to July 2018
GineersNow Incorporated
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Home-Based

My background as an editor and layout artist in our college publication is widely utilized when I joined the pioneering team of this company. Much of my work at first is to write articles daily about science, tech, and engineering as content for our website. I also contributed in building our own magazine through generating articles, often out of my virtual interviews, and developing layout design. Later, the company transitioned to digital marketing, where I handled UAE-based clients specializing in engineering products to expand their social media presence.

Site Engineer for Masonry Works

July 2015 to December 2015
Monocrete Construction Philippines Incorporated, Taguig City, Philippines
Iloilo City Mall Project
Project-Based

Fresh from my civil engineering licensure exam, I am hired by this company for the Robinsons Jaro project in Iloilo City, Philippines close to where my hometown is. The department I am assigned to is masonry under the concreting group. The project is at around 40% completed when I joined. My most important role is to ensure the quality of all the concrete hollow blocks (CHB) laying on all floors, working closely with the subcontractor and its workers. One of the office tasks I do is issue job orders.
