Randy Swanson – General Manager & Project Manager
Randy Swanson has spent his career inside of the earthwork industry. During the ten years that he was in the laborers union, he worked his way from being a general laborer to managing survey for the mass grading crews. Managing these projects gave him first-hand insight into the common issues that arise throughout the life of a project. An opportunity to become a project manager/estimator gave him the chance to learn the financial and estimating sides of the work. Maintaining competitiveness while ensuring quality was the standard he succeeded in attaining during his seven years in the position.
