Rod started out working summers as a laborer on a utility line crew, as a crew leader at a ladder factory, as a wheelman on a paving crew, and as a laborer on a vertical construction site. After earning his bachelor’s degree in Survey Engineering from the University of Maine in 1991, he was hired as an instrument man and crew chief on the Pennsylvania Southern Expressway Project in Pittsburgh. Rod relocated to Maine, where he became involved in the asphalt plant and quarry operations throughout the state. Rod was responsible for all survey layout, permitting, cost control, and estimating. Rod then served as a Superintendent on numerous Maine DOT projects across several locations, primarily Belfast, Washington, Calais, and Bangor ME. Additionally, Rod led IRAP projects in Winterport and Stockton Springs, as well as several Aggregate acquisitions across Maine. Since 2002, he has held management positions of increasing levels of responsibility and has expanded his area of business to include the entire Northeast region. In 2016, Rodney was promoted to Senior Vice President of what was then Lane Construction’s Plants & Paving operations from Maine to Texas. He became Senior Vice President of Eurovia Atlantic Coast, following the 2018 acquisition by Eurovia USA. An active member of numerous industry organizations, Rodney has served as President of the Maine Better Transportation Association, the Maine Asphalt Producers Association, and served AGC of Maine on boards and committees, and is currently a board member of the National Asphalt Pavement Association.
Brad worked for Lane Construction for 19 years, during which he steadily advanced his position to take on increased responsibility and expand his understanding of the company’s asphalt plants and paving operations. Throughout his career, he has served as Project Engineer, Plant Manager, and District Manager in Pittsburgh and the surrounding region. He also served for three years as manager of Prestress of the Carolinas, the organization’s bridge girder manufacturing line, located in Charlotte, North Carolina. Following the 2018 acquisition of Lane’s Plants and Paving division, Brad was promoted to Vice President of Northeast Paving. He now manages operations in the company’s three-state region of Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Maine, and is responsible for seizing future opportunities for growth.
Soon after, he was transferred to the Bridge Division where he provided engineering and survey duties for design-build and conventional bid build bridge projects across the state. In 2013 Mr. Berry took on a new challenge for the company and relocated to our most northern location in Presque Isle Maine, where he performed duties as the Area Manager overseeing 75 employees along with concrete, quarry, and hot mix operations. In 2017 Mr. Berry was provided an opportunity to relocate to the Division Office in Bangor Maine, where he is currently the Division Manager of Asphalt and Field Operations. As Division Manager of the Maine Operations, Mr. Berry is responsible for more than 300 employees operating across the entire State of Maine.
In 1995 he moved to Pittsburgh, where he was mentored by a senior supervisor in all facets of construction—bridges, paving, and concrete. But it was the Design-Build portion that allowed Mr. Pierce to grow his business acumen. This was a relatively new concept in this market, and the small bridge company that Mr. Pierce worked for was on the cutting edge of this technology catapulting themselves as leaders of innovation. What once took multiple years to design and build was now put in the hands of contractors who worked with designers to perform the task in a fraction of the time. Mr. Pierce worked his way up the ranks from Foreman to Superintendent, eventually becoming Vice President of Construction. In 2008, Mr. Pierce seized an opportunity in the growing Pittsburgh market to start a bridge division at Lane Construction. Using what he learned at his previous employer, Mr. Pierce began with very little resources, eventually amassing a bridge division that typically had 5-10 projects running concurrently at any given time. As times changed, so did Mr. Pierce’s career at Lane, and in 2011 he began working in the Asphalt side of the business, moving from Superintendent to General Superintendent to Area Manager. Following the sale of Lane Construction’s Plants & Paving operation to Eurovia Atlantic Coast, Mr. Pierce remains as Area Manager. Mr. Pierce has always believed in promoting from within and vows never to sacrifice Safety for Production, two ideals that are true to his core. Pat lives in Pittsburgh with his wife Kim and two daughters, Bri and Jenna.
