SANTA ANA, Calif., May 18th, 2018 – Sukut Construction, LLC announced today the appointment of Eric Mauldin as vice president of the private works market in addition to his current role as vice president, alternative energy.
“Eric has worked in many areas at Sukut during the past twenty-four years, most recently developing the customer base in Renewable Energy while continuing to grow the market geographically, as he did by expanding into Virginia and seeking new opportunities. Eric will apply these same skills to help Sukut maintain our leadership role in the Private Works construction,” wrote Steve Yurosek, Sukut’s President, in his letter to the employees announcing Mauldin’s new position.
“I have been working in the Renewable Energy world for the past six years and am very fortunate to have been allowed to develop this market space for Sukut. We have built an amazing team here and have developed great relationships with some truly outstanding organizations working within the world of renewable energy. I am very excited to reenter the Private Works market, where I spent the first eighteen years of my career,” said Mauldin.
Mauldin began his career at Sukut as a project engineer for the Silverado Joint Venture building the 241 Toll Road where he focused on grading and drainage. Following this project, Mauldin joined Sukut in the estimating department, and in 1999 he became a project manager working out of the newly opened San Diego office. In 2005, Mauldin became the San Diego division president, overseeing the Residential Grading, Energy, Public Works, and Environmental markets for that office. In 2012, Mauldin moved to our main office in Santa Ana to assume the role of vice president of the alternative energy market.
