In conversation with Howard Nute, NAXSA founding member

As a founding member of NAXSA, I’m excited and proud to see what we have built. Looking back 10 years later as I come to the 2021 convention, we can see that it’s a turning point — it’s time for the next generation to move this industry and the legacy of what we started with forward and build upon that.

A lot of work is still to be done to build out a sustainable pipeline of young people that see it as a career, and who know that there is a way for them to influence the building of the infrastructure in America. Not only the industry but also building their careers and their lives, and look at the possibilities offered by an industry that looks like mom-and-pop and steel plate rentals.

There is a lot of excitement and interest around what they can become and the direction they are going to take moving forward. I’m going to look at the founding members because now it is our turn to turn over the reins, but at the same time, give back and help these guys learn about the business, grow, and become a part of what their future can be.

I’m excited to see what’s next and happy to see what’s coming forward.
