Larry Rome keeps his management style simple: He’s dedicated, level-headed, and has done every job he asks other people to do. Mr. Rome has spent the past 24 years working in nearly every department at Eustis Engineering L.L.C. which helps him to cultivate strong working relationships among employees. Mr. Rome started in our laboratory in 1994 and has gradually performed more complex testing for the company. After assisting the drilling crew as a wrenchman, Mr. Rome took on the role of a driller in 1998 and became adept at sampling operations from various types of equipment including pontoons and barges. In 2005, Mr. Rome began serving as Operations Manager overseeing both the exploration and laboratory departments’ daily objectives, reviewing calculations, and developing new skills in laboratory personnel. In the exploration department, he oversees up to five drilling crews and two cone penetration test (CPT) crews. These duties include ordering parts, looking at prospective sites, making crew schedules, lining up subcontract equipment, and ensuring the highest quality samples are obtained by drill crews as well as subcontractors. Mr. Rome works closely with the drilling supervisor, CPT operators, assistant laboratory managers, and the Construction Materials Testing (CMT) operations supervisor overseeing each department’s daily objectives, reviewing reports, reviewing invoices, addresses staffing needs, as well as other duties. Mr. Rome also serves as a driller or soil technician for high profile projects, and has assisted in the field with our CMT department. In 2016, Mr. Rome was named Vice President (Operations). In his spare time, he enjoys camping and spending time with his wife, Jennifer, and two sons.
