Director of Field Operations – Ballast

Herzog is a great company to work for and they treat their employees like family. Initially, I was looking for a career that would allow me to travel and see the country. Eighteen years later, I’m still here and it has been a great adventure.

Jenny Butler

Project Controls Specialist

At Herzog, you’re a name and a face — not just a number — even to the people at the top! Starting out as a field engineer for Tri-Rail Segment V, I learned so much about construction and have loved working with every team I have been a part of.

Nathan Thompson
