Growing with GroundHawk: Meet Justin Pace!
For many of our clients across the southeast, Justin Pace will already be a very familiar face!
We’re excited to share that Justin is celebrating a recent promotion from Utility Location Technician to Project Manager, but not to worry; Justin will still be in the field and working directly with clients to ensure they can design and build with confidence!
A Project Manager at GroundHawk, Justin is an active part of GroundHawk projects from initial inquiry all the way through project closeout. He has been working in the utility location industry for going on six years and operates as Director of Operations Ryan McCranie’s number two in all things GroundHawk.
In fact, it was Ryan who taught Justin everything he knows about utility location, providing him with the four to eight months of hands-on, on-the-job training typical for a Junior Utility Location Technician following his time with the 11Bravo Infantryman in the United States Army.
Today, Justin and Ryan work side-by-side at GroundHawk as Project Manager and Director of Operations, respectively. The two collect data, write detailed client reports, strive to educate the public on both the importance of and the specifics behind the trade of utility location, and grow their team of utility locators.
“Utility Location Technicians have to love being outside,” Justin noted. “They have to be hard-working, loyal, dedicated to the team, and recognize that this is an important job. They have to have pride in their work and want to do the right thing for the greater good.”
Splitting his time evenly between field and office work, Justin works hard to provide GroundHawk clients with not only the best technical service but also the best customer service available on the market, his jovial nature and easily approachable personality allowing him to easily build relationships with clients, colleagues, and partners.
Please join us in congratulating Justin on his promotion to Project Manager! From the entire GroundHawk team, we’re excited to see Justin grow in the industry and continue to provide insight below the surface as a Project Manager.
