Leon Seun was promoted to Electrical Engineer I in June 2022 after a year with KDM. Leon says that he wanted a career in distribution engineering and chose KDM for its culture and accomplishments. When he started with KDM, Leon gathered field data, and worked on projects including AMI/DA, Make Ready, and Voltage Optimization.
