How does Owen bring value to EPIC?
“Since I have been at EPIC for 15+ years, I have experienced an incredible array of diverse projects. My vast project experience allows me to provide project managers with practical solutions to complications that can arise during projects.” Owen said.
“My career at EPIC started in electrical and controls, and then moved into the process and mechanical field. Now, as the General Manager, I have a direct understanding of all aspects of the engineering and design required to fully develop a turnkey project in the process industry,” said Owen.
Overall, James enjoys taking a project from concept and turning it into a detailed design; however, he mostly enjoys completing a turnkey project where our detailed design is fully built using off-site and on-site construction. “The challenge of developing and delivering a fully functional system for our clients motivates me on a daily basis,” said Owen.
James was born and raised in the St. Louis area. He enjoys traveling and has been across the US and around the world. While traveling, James practices his favorite hobby – photography.
“I enjoy traveling to places and events while trying to capture unique and dynamic photographs. When I return home, I spend time sharing my pictures with family and friends. I’m always looking forward to my next trip – I recently planned a visit to Yellowstone to photograph the buffalo and wolves in the snow,” said Owen.
James also likes to participate in outdoor activities such as cycling, basketball & scuba diving.
