Harold began his career with the Bethlehem Steel Corporation in Seattle, Washington as a detailer and estimator on many of the largest profile commercial, heavy/highway and civil structures of the day. After 20 years with Bethlehem, Harold moved to Seattle Steel Co. in 1985, where he was one of 4 estimators responsible for the Pacific Northwest market in estimating and sales. In 1989, Harold assumed the position of head estimator and head of sales for Puget Sound Steel Company, an independently owned and operated reinforcing steel fabricator. Under his leadership, the company has flourished, its reputation unsurpassed for being the best in the market. Notable projects include the Seattle Great Wheel, The Four Seasons and Marriott Waterfront Hotels, and numerous other projects in and around the Pacific Northwest. Harold retired from Puget Sound Steel in January, 2020, with the admiration and gratitude of co-workers and customers alike, and a much changed skyline in the ensuing 55 years.
Harold and his wife Jeannie have just celebrated their 45th anniversary together in 2020.
