Mr. Hall said, " John Hewitt has extensive experience in the construction industry and in the markets we serve.  He has been responsible for managing growth and delivering solid business results throughout his career. He brings a demonstrated ability and proven record in the EPC industry and is well prepared to lead Matrix Service Company."

Mr. Hewitt earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Finance from Stetson University in 1980 and a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Florida Institute of Technology in 1983.
