Coming Together and Raising the Bar

Coming Together and Raising the Bar


As part of our evolution, P&J is consolidating our divisions to create more cohesion. Our markets are being collapsed into three overarching categories: Heavy Civil, Power, and Disaster Response; each operating in multiple, specialized disciplines. In the new year, we will stop using current division numbers, in favor of new division numbers for Heavy Civil, Power, and Disaster Response. The new division numbers and more information will be coming early next year.


We’re truly one team at P&J, and success in one market helps promote all of them. It’s time to see what we can accomplish when we share clients, successes, and resources. There’s a wealth of knowledge and different skillsets throughout our team, and we’re excited to find more opportunities for collaboration and expansion in the new year.

With this shift, we’re excited to announce the promotion of Gerry Arvidson and Morgan Pierce to Presidents of Heavy Civil and Power, respectively! Other promotions in Operations include:

  • Art Phelps, Senior Vice President, Heavy Civil
  • Matt Wagley, Vice President/Regional Manager, Heavy Civil



At the PIH level, we have a few Corporate Services promotions to celebrate as well!

  • Emily Torgerson, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Communications
  • Lee Haniford, Vice President of Human Resources
  • Mike Cofer, Vice President, IT
  • Jason Garner, Vice President, Controller

Congratulations on these promotions! Let’s hit the ground running in 2022.
