Shortly after graduating from Auburn University in 1995 with a degree in Industrial Engineering, Danny began serving the waterworks industry as a Sales Engineer for American Cast Iron Pipe. His 13 year career with ACIPCO was spent serving utilities, distributors, engineers and contractors throughout Central Florida. Early in his career he enjoyed success working on high-profile projects with Disney and Universal Studios while also serving as AWWA’s Region 3 Vice-Chair. After a brief exit, Danny rejoined the industry in 2008 as the General Manager of Electrosteel USA. His first challenge was to design, produce and deliver the first new supply of AWWA certified DIP in over 75 years. After 2 years of development, Electrosteel USA began selling its Pushtite brand of DIP in 2010. Now, as Managing Director, Danny is intimately involved with all aspects of sales, operations and finance. Besides supporting sales of Pushtite DIP in almost every state and Canada, Danny also serves on AWWA’s A21 Standards Committee for Ductile Iron Pipe and Fittings, the National Association of Pipe Fabricator’s Board of Directors and WWEMA’s Legislative/Regulatory Committee. He has also pioneered multiple new coatings and linings for DIP including zinc-epoxy and Perma-Shield 431. Danny was married in 2001 to his current wife Donna and is blessed with two children, Zoey and Zack. When not serving the waterworks industry, he also enjoys tennis, travel and maintaining his home in Birmingham, AL.
