Mike has a master’s degree in systems administration and is our corporate scrap manager. Before joining JDS in 2014, he was director of operations for a heavy-equipment construction company, where he coordinated daily operations, budgeting and asset coordination, sometimes for more than 50 projects running concurrently. At JDS, he manages the removal of assets from our job sites, including plant equipment for resale, and salvaged ferrous and non-ferrous metals. He contracts mills and scrap yards to process and purchase the materials and achieves the best price per shipment. He also organizes the haulage of commodities by road and rail and coordinates demolition schedules to ensure a steady revenue flow.
