Meet Jared Solich: EFI Group’s New Senior Project Engineer & Power Expert

Jared Solich, P.E., Senior Project Engineer & Power and Energy ExpertOur newest Senior Project Engineer, Jared Solich, has a passion for finding the often-hidden underlying issues within manufacturing environments in order to identify and solve the true core problem.

His experience in the power industry combined with his talent for bringing clarity during the execution of critical functions, greatly impact the productivity and profitability of the manufacturers we serve.

For Jared, that impact has an even deeper meaning:

“So many of us take the basic services we receive for granted – electricity, water, food, etc. But throughout my career I’ve had the opportunity to meet the people driving those processes and to see how they work around the clock to make sure the needs of families and communities are met. I want to make sure those behind the scenes – those responsible for making society work – get the right solutions so that they can perform their responsibilities seamlessly and without frustration.”

Before joining EFI Group, Jared earned his reputation as an energy expert through a diverse set of roles and responsibilities for both Fortune 500 companies and privately owned power producers in the coal, natural gas, oil and nuclear power industries.

Throughout his career, he has provided exceptional leadership and technical mastery as an engineer, project manager, shift supervisor, maintenance manager, operations manager and engineering manager.

Jared’s own energy is fueled by his love for meeting new people and learning new things. In his early life he earned the prestigious designation of Eagle Scout through the Boy Scouts of America and a commitment to personal and professional growth has always been part of his DNA. Most recently, he started learning guitar and he’s also in the process of earning his MBA.

If you haven’t guessed already, Jared’s dad is EFI Group Senior Project Manager and Partner, Jim Solich, who also has a deep passion for learning and problem solving. As Jared put it:

“My dad and I are close and over the years it’s been inspiring to hear how excited he is about his work. I can tell he really loves it and, clearly, I’ve found a really good fit at EFI Group.”

As for us, we couldn’t be happier to now have two Solich’s on board and we hope you’ll join us in welcoming Jared to the team.

We hired EFI Group to help us figure out a project and scope it, and I felt confident they would keep a keen eye on it. They had to deliver quickly and they did it well. They are especially good at project management when you don’t have the resources to do it internally. Reliability is the word I would use to describe EFI Group.

EFI Group is timely. We’ve had a lot of situations when we’ve been in a time crunch and they’ve responded very quickly. They are detail oriented and efficient. They’re a good group of people who also have a lot of strength in pre-engineering — the thought process to get to preliminary design and making sure we’ve investigated all the potential asks of a project to ensure we didn’t miss anything. They have great attention to detail up front which is very important to any project because having that detail-oriented deep dive into the pre-engineering phase sets the stage for the success of the rest of the project, making the process smoother and making it much easier to keep the project on schedule and on budget.
— Mike Quigley, Engineering & Maintenance Manager, Food Industry
I’ve worked with EFI Group for a while, so I know they have a good, knowledgeable staff. We know we’re going to get the results from them we expect. From my interactions with all the different EFI team members I’ve worked with, I know they have knowledge across many industries. Equally, I never have to follow up with EFI Group and, in some cases, they keep me on track.

We view EFI Group as a team that can dimensionalize our capability to execute projects. We can articulate what it is we want to do and they can take that input and run with it without much intervention from us. They’re able to move a project along independently and only engage us when it’s time to bring us up to speed or get more input to drive a project to conclusion. That’s one of the reasons I view them as an excellent contractor.

EFI Group has good engineers and good customer service. We know when we get an EFI engineer on a project, we’re going to a get a good job from them and it’s been a productive relationship for both of us — I genuinely like the people.
