Meet Steve Pierce, Substation Manager – New England

September 17, 2021

Please join us in welcoming Steve Pierce, P.E. to our team!

Steve comes to ECI with over 35 years of experience in the electric utilities and generation industry. Most recently employed at TRC, Steve served as the Director of Substation Engineering, leading 6 power sector offices containing over 150 staff members. Steve and his team worked with many mutual clients of ours, including Avangrid, San Diego Gas & Electric, NextEra, and American Electric Power.

Steve was brought to ECI by the “promises of unimaginable riches,” he jokes. “But seriously, it was the thought of being able to once again grow an engineering business unit in the New England area. After meeting Dick and Bruce, it was the culture and their vision that sold it,” he said.

Steve will be working out of ECI’s Cumberland, Maine office in his role as Substation Manager – New England, taking an active leadership position in our projects on the East Coast. “My long-term goal is to develop a plan to expand ECI’s reach into the New England substation market,” he noted. Steve is highly experienced in substation design, as well as protection and control, automation, and commissioning services. “Customer satisfaction’s my biggest driver in my work, whether it’s internal or external clients,” he said.

When he’s not at work, Steve’s doing anything and everything outdoors, from golfing, fishing, and motorcycling in the summers, to hunting and ice fishing in the fall and winter.

ECI is excited about this dynamic addition to our East Coast team. Welcome, Steve!
