New Facilities Manager Joins Purdue Veterinary Medicine Staff
The Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine recently welcomed Scott Fix as the new facilities manager. Scott started in the position April 25, serving as the college’s point-of-contact for maintenance, building access and security, renovation, safety compliance and new construction.
Scott will interface with department/unit leaders, Physical Facilities, REM, and external contractors on building construction, renovations, and safety-related projects. He also will serve as building deputy for Lynn Hall as well as the David and Bonnie Brunner Purdue Veterinary Medical Hospital Complex, the Equine Health Sciences Building, animal housing and isolation facilities, the veterinary farm, Caesar’s Entertainment Equine Specialty Hospital in Shelbyville, Indiana, and the Heeke Diagnostic Laboratory in Southern Indiana.
Scott previously served as the crew chief for Zone 1 in Operations and Maintenance (O&M) where he was responsible for overseeing a team of technicians that handle quick response maintenance needs for several campus buildings. He also has experience in planning and coordinating work with O&M personnel, engineering, and outside contractors.
Scott lives just about 20 minutes from campus with his wife, who trains horses and takes classes at Purdue. They also have a great little beagle mix dog that loves truck rides. When Scott is at home, he often can be found working in the garage, but he also enjoys being outside, going for a run, or working on the property. One thing is certain, he has plenty of projects that keep him busy. He also enjoys going to Cars and Coffee events and taking drives in the country. Additionally, with family spread across the country, Scott and his wife typically load up their dog for an annual vacation when they can take advantage of having free places to stay!
If you haven’t had the opportunity to do so already, please help extend a warm welcome to Scott! His office is in Lynn 1200 and he can be reached at 496-8392 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
