Assisting in the development of the ECA brand in the Southeastern US is a tremendous opportunity and one that John has embraced. With the support of first-class service and parts department’s that understand the sense of urgency necessary to be effective in the deep foundation industry, ECA is well positioned for tremendous growth in the southeast.

Prior to joining ECA in 2016 as the southeastern regional sales manager, John held the position of director of marketing, brand management and business development for Loadtest, Inc.; an engineering firm specializing in testing the capacities of deep foundations. Having participated in hundreds of load tests on deep foundation projects worldwide, John has a unique understanding of the environment that foundation contractors must manage. As observed – Mother Nature has many children – the deep foundation environment perhaps having some of her most difficult.

John has been active in the deep foundation industry though a variety of trade organizations, the ADSC-IAFD (Association of Drilled Shaft Contractors), DFI (Deep Foundations Institute), Geo-Institute, DBIA (Design Build Institute of America) and the CGS (Canadian Geotechnical Society). He has authored or co-authored several industry papers and presented to numerous State and Federal transportation events.

A sense of urgency in the deep foundation industry cannot be overestimated; embrace it and your customers will embrace you, ignore it and your customers will ignore you.
