About the President
My experience in the construction industry began less than a year after graduation from high school, operating a dozer and backhoe mostly on farms and small tracts of land developing residential building sites. During the mid 80’s was when I initially became licensed as a septic systems contractor with the state of Illinois. During these years we also became involved in commercial grading and excavating on several notable sites throughout southern Illinois.
In 1990 I accepted a position with a contractor who primarily engaged in installing large sewage collection systems in cities. During the years I worked for them I was involved as a laborer, an operating engineer and as a site foreman. I was involved in the installation of collection piping for municipal waste collection systems.
In 1993 I accepted a position with a heavy and highway excavating contractor as a project superintendent. During the next several years I was involved in the construction of highways, a major wastewater treatment plant, a major water treatment facility, a state correctional facility as well as multiple smaller projects.
In 1997 I accepted a similar position with a commercial building contractor and helped with the excavation for the foundations for several notable commercial structures throughout the region.
Since founding KIL-CON, Inc. in 2000 I have became licensed as a Septic Tank Pumping Contractor, and a Licensed portable toilet technician as well as a licensed Septic Installer in Illinois. We are an Advanced Septic Installer in Missouri and Spent two terms on the board of directors of the Onsite Wastewater Professionals of Illinois also served as both Vice President and President of that association. I am also currently the manufacturers representative for the Southern 2/3 of Illinois and all of Eastern Missouri for Aquaklear Inc.
In 2014, I received the Larry VanSickle award for outstanding contributions to the on site wastewater industry in Illinois.
I currently set on the Governor’s Wastewater Advisory Commission in the State of Illinois.
