127 Millennium - A Marquis Who’s Who Magazine ENERGY, ENGINEERING AND MANUFACTURING Attributing his success to his exceptional education at an aviation trade school during his high school years, who later on honored him with a Congressional Award in 2007, Robert A. Badal commenced his career in 2009 with Beys Specialty, Inc., as a superintendent. Maintaining the role for two years, he went on to serve as a production manager for B&B Metal Works, Inc., from 2011 to 2012. Since joining ACS System Associates in New York in 2012, he has excelled as a senior project manager. During his tenure with ACS System Associates, Mr. Badal attended New York University (NYU), where he earned a certification in construction project management in 2014. That same year, he received an Associate of Science in mechanical engineering from the New York City College of Technology. Holding a professional development gold standard series license from NYU, he has been a Certified ScrumMaster since 2020. Mr. Badal has maintained affiliation with the Project Management Institute and the SCRUM Alliance to remain abreast of shifts in an ever-changing industry. He notes that his ascent into mechanical engineering was natural, particularly after the economic recession in 2008 when he realized that the field of engineering was still flourishing. He advises future, emerging professionals in the industry to obtain field experience alongside a formal education, as he says, “There is no substitute for practical applications.” He also advises students of all disciplines to educate themselves on the United States Constitution, as there is great reward to learning about a nation’s history and the practice of law. Looking toward the future, Mr. Badal intends to move up within ACS System Associates or possibly spearhead his own engineering and construction company. He would also like to begin taking additional college courses in international business to attain a well-rounded education in all areas of his field. A native of San Fernando, Trinidad, Mr. Badal currently resides in Baldwin, New York, with his wife of six years, Brittney. He enjoys playing basketball and golf in his spare time, as well as investing in the stock market. Millennium Magazine Featured Listee ROBERT A.
