After a remarkable career spanning 50 years, 29 of which have been with Terracon Geotechnique Ltd., Emmett Horne has made the decision to retire as Terracon’s full time Chief Geologist and transition to a part time position as Senior Geological Consultant effective January 1st, 2014.
Lee Nichols, President of Terracon, says, “Emmett has been an integral part of Terracon’s leadership team these last 30 years, and instrumental in creating the client-focused culture that we enjoy today. He has always lead by example whether it was through his patience, professionalism, and entrepreneurial spirit, or just by spending countless days in the field working with our younger professionals and our clients. We are fortunate to be able to continue to tap into his deep knowledge and passion for geosciences through this transition period in his career.”
We would like to thank Emmett for everything that he has done for Terracon, for the countless geologists that he has mentored over the years, and for his service to the profession of Geology. All the best Emmett and tight fishing lines!
To all our employees, clients and vendors, we are pleased to announce that this year Terracon will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary. Terracon was incorporated back in May of 1983 with very humble beginnings but a strong vision towards client service, safety and technical excellence. Lee Nichols, one of the company’s founding partners, continues to lead the company as its President and Chairman. The company now employs well over 250 people and is proud of the fact that it is employee owned.
“Our team success is based on a “Built Right In” attitude in everything we do. Right from integrating with our clients’ operations, fostering cooperation between our own teams, and to building an attitude of safety and quality in everything we do”, states Lee. “While we look back over the 30 years at what we’ve built, we also are very excited about the tremendous opportunities that lie ahead and continuing to work with our employees to build a company that makes a positive impact on the industry and our careers.”
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our employees, past employees, clients, and vendors for working with us and helping build what we believe to be a great success story.
