Their focus is in the Mid-Atlantic area primarily in the states of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Washington D.C. and Virginia. Nathan Leyburn began his career in the construction management industry in Baltimore with Whiting-Turner Contracting Company in Baltimore. He finished as a mid-level Project Manager after 11 years. He then accepted a similar position as a Project Manager for a smaller construction firm, Johnston Construction for the for the next 2 years. In his construction career, Nathan was always involved with water, wastewater and industrial wastewater treatment facility upgrades. It was a seamless transition from being a contractor who used to purchase equipment to someone who is selling the same type of equipment. Congratulations on this achievement!
