Trey Daniels

Trey was an inquisitive kid who grew up asking a lot of questions as he observed the world around him. His natural curiosity combined with a long list of part-time jobs as a teenager helped him understand early in life that the way to succeed was to learn what was important to customers and figure out how to serve them well by helping them be successful. Since graduating from Old Dominion University, he has spent the last 25+ years in the construction industry in sales, project management, and financial roles. Trey’s primary focus is culture development, marketing and sales, and overall responsibility for the financial health and performance of the company.

Tommy Benton
Vice President of Field Construction

Tommy practically grew up with a pipe wrench in one hand and a conduit bender in the other. Having joined the company in 1999, he has owned an electrical contracting company, managed electrical and service departments, served as a petroleum equipment sales representative, and is a master electrician with an unmatched mechanical aptitude. With a positive attitude, an in-depth working understanding of systems, and impressive field-engineering skills, no problem is too difficult for Tommy to think and muscle through to a solution.
