THE LEADERSHIP TEAM
Robert Adair, President
PRESIDENT & CEO
Schooled in architecture, with a career spanning both the construction and high technology industries, Bob has founded, co-founded or led a number of innovative new companies to success at regional, national and international levels, by establishing a dominant footprint in emerging markets.
In the sustainability arena, Bob led the formation of the Houston Land/Water Sustainability Forum (HLWSF) in 2007 and has served as its Steering Committee Chair since inception. The HLWSF has been instrumental in the adoption, adaptation and implementation of Low Impact Development in the Houston area and has achieved local, regional and national recognition, from the EPA, and others for its unique, market-driven approach to driving change.
Bob is a multi-term member of the Board of the South Central Chapter of the International Erosion Control Association (IECA), and is a recipient of that organization’s Sustained Contributor Award. He has served on the Small Business Advisory Council of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), the Steering Committee of the Environmental Forum of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America, the Board of Directors of the Associated General Contractors-Houston, the national Stormwater Committee of the Water Environment Federation (WEF) where he was vice chair of the Focus on Innovation subcommittee, and currently serves on the Advisory Committee of the national Stormwater Technology Testing and Evaluation for Product and Practices (STEPP) Workgroup led by WEF and the USEPA. He’s also currently serving on the Board of Cy-Fair Christian Church.
He’s the proud father of a remarkable ‘cyber warrior’ son, the loving husband of a beautiful Venezuelana, and an avid sailor “with a Caribbean soul [he] can barely control.”
Eugene Johnson, Director
Personnel and Safety
Coming from a 19 year career in the healthcare industry, where driving efficiency and the success of teams and functions in high demand environments was critical, Eugene joined Construction EcoServices in 2012 to apply his talents in human resource management, staff development, health and safety to the needs of a company primed for rapid growth. Ensuring adherence to strict regulations and organizational guidelines imposed by OSHA, the Department of Labor and the EEOC are second nature to him, but it’s his ability to positively impact the lives of EcoServices employees and contribute to boosting company growth by improving health and safety performance, that drives him.
Todd Wold, Director
Todd Wold has 25 years of marketing experience, including 12 years owning his own Internet Marketing practice and serving as Marketing Director at four advertising agencies. Todd is an outside-the-box creative thinker who applies innovative and memorable approaches to branding, lead nurturing, sales and customer retention. Since joining Construction EcoServices in mid-2018, Todd has been instrumental in the development of Construction EcoService’s unified marketing path that has brought together the company’s vision, various departments and it’s multiple geographic locations. In his spare time, he continues his obsession with music and food by playing drums, guitar and piano while cooking 5-course gourmet meals for his wife and son.
David Batts, Vice President
Stormwater System Solutions
David Batts grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast where he spent every free moment he had on the water. It was fitting that as a professional he found himself helping protect the very ecosystem that he enjoyed as an adolescent. Promoting innovative new water management strategies is as much of a passion as it is how he makes a living, and he often finds himself far from home presenting to anyone that will listen about his latest finding or lesson learned in his pursuit of perfection in Green Infrastructure Design and Construction Methods. David joined Construction EcoServices in 2006 as the first employee in the Stormwater System Solutions business unit that he now runs. He is an avid fisherman and conservationist and spends as much time as possible with his wife and two boys enjoying nature.
Dale Bankston, Vice President
Operations & Construction Compliance Services
Dale has 25 years of experience in the Houston construction marketplace, including 15 years as owner of his own company. He joined Construction EcoServices in 2006 and has served in leadership roles in virtually every department concerned with construction activity compliance. Jack of all trades and master of most, Dale is the ultimate ‘get it done’ guy who leads by example. If he’s not at work you’ll likely find him playing a killer drum line for one of several local bands, or even on Sunday morning with the church praise and worship band.
John Moss, Director
An important member of the Construction EcoServices team since 2003, John spent much of his career automating field sales and service organizations with cutting edge technologies. At EcoServices, he has served in various senior roles, all of which have capitalized on his innate relationship and partnership building skills. John is a frequent presenter at industry conferences and has trained literally thousands of general contractor personnel and regulators. Passionate about music since his teen years, John has engineered and produced numerous live concerts and several recordings by names you’d know, in studios across Texas. He has been blessed with a loving wife, two beautiful daughters and a grandson who is the apple of his eye.

Stormwater: Why Care?
Stormwater management may seem like a relatively new industry, but it has actually been around since the Roman times. They knew, even back then, that managing stormwater runoff was a key issue to urban living. With poor stormwater management, both flooding and disease constantly wreaked havoc in ancient cities.
Not much has changed since then, except now, with more and more of the earth being covered over with cement and other impervious surfaces, the negative effects of poor stormwater management have increased exponentially. Our natural water supplies are at risk due to pollution and their lack of ability to recharge. The flowing of our waterways are at risk from erosion, sediment build up, and trash. And, our marine life is at risk, from all the chemicals finding their way into bodies of water.
Some may see stormwater management as just another unnecessary and unwanted cost to construction projects or property ownership and management. But, understanding the negative effects that poor or no stormwater management is causing should be a concern to us all. It affects where we live and play. It affects our marine-based food supply. It affects our dwindling water supply.
We care. It is why we do what we do.
While the rest of the country focused on treating one inch of rainfall, we were pushing the limits and learning how to manage the largest storms by using Low Impact Development (LID) / Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) solutions. We believed that if we could develop LID / GSI solutions in a place like Houston Texas, we could make them work anywhere.
Not only have we succeeded, but we have the the data, the case studies, and the experiences to prove it.
Since 2005, the team at Construction EcoServices and it’s partners around the country have dedicated their work to both the big discoveries and the small, that have drastically improved the performance and reliability of Low Impact Development. Collectively, they have been compiled here on this site, so that you may take advantage of the knowledge that has come from our success and failures.
