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.
