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 29-year-old slashie from Manila, Philippines.
I have been in various employments since I finished my civil engineering degree and passed the board exam: from being a civil engineer for a huge mall project, content editor for a Dubai-based digital publishing and marketing company, sales engineer for the country’s (arguably) number one solar installer, technical sales/business development in a Japanese multinational company, to an insurance agent in the most stable life insurance company in the Philippines.
In my recent jobs, I was able to sideline as a content creator now with more than 200,000 organic followers on Facebook.
Find out the details of my professional work below.
If you are a recruiter, you can download my resume at the tail end of this page.
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. Additionally, with my experience in trading solar panels in my work with an international brand (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.
Personal Financial Advisor or Insurance Agent
January 2022 to Present
AIA Philippines, formerly AIA Philam Life
Makati City, Philippines
Being an Insurance Agent, now glamorized as a Personal Financial Advisor, my main purpose is to protect the finances of Filipinos through life insurance. I am a fierce advocate of personal finance which manifested in my insurance career after being classified as a Senior Advisor (with P 1 Million in personal sales in 2021) on my rookie year and being promoted to a Unit Manager in less than 2 years, now handling a team of 12 people.
Technical Sales Engineer for Solar Panels
July 2019 to March 2021
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
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 was high, I was given special assignment since I have a technical background with solar installations.
Content Editor for Digital Publishing & Marketing
January 2016 to July 2018
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
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 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
Fresh from my civil engineering licensure exam, I was 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 was masonry under the concreting group. The project was 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.
