Houston, Texas (February 22, 2017)

Vortex Infrastructure, the nation’s fastest growing trenchless solutions provider, today announced the promotion of Shane Stelly to Vice President of Estimating. “Since coming on board three years ago, Shane has provided the stability we needed to accurately estimate and bid on bypass projects,” stated Mike Vellano, Chief Executive Officer at Vortex Infrastructure. “Through his accurate and transparent estimating processes, Shane’s played a vital role, not only securing new business, but helping us maintain our customers, as well.”

“Shane’s broad industry knowledge base and attention to detail are critical, not only to our business, but our customers as well,” said Nick Banchetti, COO at Vortex Infrastructure. “At the end of the day, neither of us want any surprises.” Prior to moving into project estimating, Shane had over 20 years of project management experience in environmental remediation services and bypass operations. His projects ranged from landfill and refinery retention pond management, to providing full-­‐scale design and management of pumping and dewatering projects for cities, counties, and municipalities. “Shane’s background gives him the ability to visualize a project in its entirety, which has proven to be invaluable when estimating large scale projects,” Vellano added.
