Troy Johnson Operations Manager
TROY JOHNSON

Vice President

Troy was raised on a working cattle ranch in rural Utah where he learned the importance of both a sense of responsibility and a strong work ethic at a young age.  He carried these values on to an 8-year career working for a construction company specializing in drilling and blasting.  While there, he worked his way up from a laborer to a foreman while also completing his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Utah State University.  He had the unique opportunity to complete an engineering internship for a corporate construction company where he worked his way up to a senior project manager level in the eight years he worked there while bidding and managing over a hundred and fifty million dollars’ worth of work.

Troy made the career move to become the operations manager at Wollam Construction in 2015 and has been passionate about the growth of the company by recruiting and developing talent at all levels.  He has always had the personal philosophy that companies are a strict representative of the people that they employ, and this guides his personal leadership style.  Since being brought on by Wollam, he has diversified the portfolio of work the company is able to perform while managing and growing a talented and diverse workforce.

Troy is focused and committed to creating growth opportunities for both the company and the people who work there through strong leadership, strategic goal setting, and outstanding performance on all projects and at all levels.

When he isn’t working, Troy enjoys spending time with his wife and three children.  He is an avid sports fan and outdoor enthusiast and bases his free time around these interests alongside his family.

Growing up on a golf course was not as glamorous as you would think, her first working memories are carrying a heavy water hose around the 70 acres and fixing ball marks on the greens. Through this hard work and the with amazing example of her Dad with his early morning and late nights set a goal in Sara’s head to do her best, and love what she does. Her first office job was for a local civil engineering firm where she started as the receptionist, in her 11 years she worked her way to becoming the lead accountant, as well as earning her Accounting Degree.

Alex Eastburn - Construction safety manager at Wollam Construction
ALEX EASTBURN

Safety Manager

Alex is our corporate health and safety director. Additional responsibilities include company photographer and drone pilot. Alex is a Utah native and grew up exploring the foothills of the Oquirrh Mountains behind his childhood home before ranging further to the dirt roads, switchbacks, rivers, and streams of the Wasatch and Uintah Ranges. Eight years in the Marine Corps provided Alex with foundational personal and professional opportunities on which he has continued to build a life dedicated to the service of family and community.

Alex joined our team after working in the residential sector as a hardwood flooring contractor. It was originally meant to be a temporary change of scenery. However, once he was exposed to the energy, creativity, and scope of heavy industrial construction, he marveled at what could be accomplished by an experienced team working towards a common goal.

Throughout his years working in various trade crafts, Alex could always be heard saying “if we don’t have time to do it safely, we don’t have time to do it at all”. Eventually, he was assigned to site safety support role on a large project. It was a fortuitous move that allowed him to integrate his craft experience with organizational and leadership skills. A few years, and dozens of projects later, Alex was promoted to his current role. His genuine passion for the health and safety of his team drives his commitment to developing his professional safety knowledge and skills and ensuring Wollam Construction’s safety culture travels with its workforce to every project, informing individual and team decisions from morning line-out to roll-up at the end of shift.
