Ian is our marketing coordinator and office assistant. Not to break the mold-he also graduated from LSU. Ian is usually the first point of contact for phone calls, and is responsible for creating and managing our websites (not sure why he's speaking in third person...)


Brandon had an internship with the company in the past and was excited to join us full-time after graduating from LSU! The experience that Brandon gained from his internship enabled him to hit the ground running, and we're glad to have him as part of the team. His love for the outdoors has already helped keep him sane during the Louisiana summer heat!

Chris worked part-time with us, but has proven more than capable and we were excited to bring him on as a full-time team member! He has a strong background working with electrical, which has proved valuable in the field for fountain and aeration installs. Chris loves to fish, and he'll bring that same passion to ensure your pond is a great fishing spot as well.
