"It is awesome to be working in the industry that provides the strongest and longest-lasting drainage pipe products on the market. It is so rewarding to be on the side being chased and not doing the catching up." 

Fun Fact: Growing up, his father was purchasing manager for Price Brothers Company which was a large privately-held producer of a variety of precast products such as sewer pipe, pressure pipe, and prestressed building components. He was not an engineer but worked with many engineers. His father encouraged him to become an engineer after seeing the many opportunities that engineers had. He did his college co-op with Price Brothers but didn't take a job with them after graduation. He was outside of the industry for four years. He had the opportunity to be a Design Engineer, Quality Control Manager, Engineering Manager, General Manager, and President/COO before joining ACPA. As his father said, he had awesome opportunities as an engineer and landed in the perfect place.
