“Matt spent 25 years building a culture of respect and teamwork at Ted Berry,” said Mike Vellano, CEO of the Vortex Companies. “We believe this experience will help us further define ‘the Vortex way’ and reinforce our corporate values.”


According to Vellano growth, both organically and through acquisition, will only be accomplished through a sustainable culture. Every team member needs to clearly understand how their contributions make a difference.


“Over the last year we have invested significant time and resources to survey and develop a corporate culture and core values program,” Vellano says. As a result, ‘We win big together’, was officially launched in Mid-July, and is the centerpiece of this mission.

“Matt’s energy, enthusiasm and experience, make him most qualified person to oversee its implementation, both internally and externally,” added Vellano.


Vortex acquired Ted Berry, a highly regarded northeast region trenchless services company, in February. Both companies have benefited from the union, sharing complementary services, products and industry knowledge.


“As this company grows and our team gets bigger, it is essential that we have a clear vision with solid values and habits to back it up,” said Timberlake. “This is how we can win big together and I’m excited to champion this message forward.”
