“Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Simi Kavakava

Structured Cabling Technician

Simi, a Tonga native who graduated from Taufa’ahau Pilolevu College in Ha’apai Tonga, moved a world away to the United States in 2012. Simi spent time working for a family owned pool business before moving to West Virginia to work in the oil fields there and in Pennsylvania. After spending a year away from his wife Kristen and their daughter, he returned to Virginia Beach and joined ABS in 2016 as the Inventory Manager for our Structured Cabling Department. Before long, Simi was promoted to Structured Cabling Technician where he works alongside other ABS technicians to install new structured cabling infrastructures to support the latest technology!

In addition to spending time with this family outside of work, you will find Simi attending the Virginia Beach Higher Education Center as he works to further sharpen his English skills. Fun fact: Simi didn’t get to experience McDonald’s until he arrived in the US when he was 24! (You have a lot of lost time to make up for, Simi! Big Mac & fries, anyone?)
