Four new officers were elected to the Steel Erectors Association of America’s Board of Directors during the July Board Meeting held in Orlando, Fla. The meeting was led by incoming President Dave Schulz, who took office last April during the 46th Annual Convention and Trade Show in Greensboro, N.C. Schulz of Schulz Iron Works began his career as an erector. He has served on the SEAA Board of Directors since 2007 and was named Person of the Year in 2009.

Newly elected officers, serving two-year terms from 2018-2020 are:

  • Geoff Kress, Vice President, Industry Member, representing Gardner-Watson Decking,
  • Carrie Gulajan, Vice President, Associate Member, representing Construction Insurance Agency,
  • Greg Phillips, Treasurer, representing Titan Steel Erectors, and
  • Chris Legnon, Secretary, representing Cooper Steel.

“Being elected to lead SEAA is a life-long dream that has been realized,” said Schulz. Committed to advancing safety in the steel erection industry, Schulz will focus his presidency on developing electronic delivery of training programs for ironworkers.
