Randy studied business management at Oregon State University, where he gained valuable experience as a lab technician, and then as a field technician. He then transferred to the University of Oregon.
Randy’s first industry role was at the University of Oregon as a lab technician with Pittsburg Testing Laboratories, advancing quickly to field technician, and then project manager, overseeing inspection services for the construction of shopping centers, hospitals, and industrial projects.
When Pittsburg Testing Industries merged with PSI (now Benchmark), Randy became the man in charge of the engineered wood products division, managing the development and certification of wood-based materials. Randy’s expansive knowledge and expertise makes him an integral part of Benchmark’s core team.
Today, Randy’s efforts focus primarily on providing third-party inspection services supporting clients in the concrete, steel, metal building fabrication, and related industries.
Away from Benchmark, Randy continues to enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, and anything that his native Oregon provides him.
