After starting at Saarman as a project manager, he rose steadily through the ranks to become a senior project manager and then Vice President of Operations. Along the way he played an integral part in developing Saarman’s Quality Control program, training both the project management team and our field superintendents. Ben also developed Saarman’s safety program, ensuring that our crews can always focus on the work without worries about their well-being.
