John Marlow is an associate vice president for U.S. Engineering Company in the Rocky Mountain region. U.S. Engineering Company (USE) is a mechanical contractor that is celebrating its 125th Anniversary in 2018. USE has its headquarters in Kansas City, MO but has had a regional office in Colorado since 1967. While USE is a mechanical contractor, it does not want to be recognized only as such. USE believes its team members are not only stewards of the company but also the industry and the communities in which it serves and where its team members live. USE’s mission is to “Leave a Legacy” and the way they want to do this is by helping their clients accomplish each of their missions. USE realizes they are building more than just buildings…they are building lasting relationships by doing more than just mechanical contracting.
John has worked at USE for over total of 20 years. Prior to joining USE in 1995, John worked for another mechanical contractor immediately after graduating from Colorado State University in 1992. In 2012, John uprooted his family and moved to Fort Wayne, IN for an opportunity-of-a-lifetime and to be closer to family.
Throughout John’s career, he’s continually stepped up and taken on more responsibility from project engineer to vice president. John’s always believed in helping and mentoring with whom those he works. In 2009, John was promoted to vice president of the construction group. Along with two (2) other vice presidents, John was responsible for the financial success of the region which was doing approximately $100M in volume. Since returning to USE in 2015, John has been in the role of associate vice president. Because of John’s experience, he wears many hats and supports many different groups within the region but his primary role is to help lead the project development side of the business. John is also currently leading the effort for USE’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) program.
John holds a Bachelors of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado State University. He is a member of Toastmasters, volunteers and serves on the There With Care Board of Directors, serves on the Professional Advisory Development Board for the Construction Management program at CSU and is on the PVH/MCR Foundation Spring Benefit Committee. In addition to this, John chairs USE’s annual charity golf tournament for the region. The past two years, ThereWithCare has been the recipient for this and will once again be this year.
When not at work, John is spending time with his family. John met his wife, Kristy, at Colorado State University when they were freshmen and they married immediately following graduation in 1992. Together, they have four (4) wonderful children, Seth (24), Bryce (22), Logan (19) and Raegan (16).
