Adam Rehfeld leads Primera’s Distribution teams with a passion for helping others learn and develop their skills. “I enjoy aligning people with work they are passionate about to put them in the best position to succeed,” he explains. Adam’s expertise is the result of more than a decade of experience managing multi-discipline engineering and project management distribution and power generation design projects. Specifically, his distribution experience at Primera includes the management of the Grid Resiliency Program for a large electric utility.
Adam studied mechanical engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before beginning his career with a global leader in the power industry, managing multi-discipline projects across North America and Japan for clients like Exelon, Xcel Energy, Entergy, Duke Energy, Florida Power & Light and American Electric Power, among others. He quickly developed a well-rounded skill set progressing through roles in mechanical engineering, structural engineering and project management. Since joining Primera in 2014, Adam has overseen the successful completion of distribution design projects for various programs for utilities in the Midwest. He and his team focus on developing an unrivaled understanding of each utility’s software and standards to deliver a superior client experience.
Outside the office, Adam is a dedicated father to three wonderful children. In addition to spending time with his family, he enjoys participating in barbeque competitions as well as grilling for family and friends. He also volunteers frequently at his community church where he recently helped construct a new playground for their school.
