Danos hires two scaffolding managers

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

Danos announces the hiring of two new employees to oversee scaffolding operations within the organization: Clay Daugherty and John Moberly. Collectively, the two have 47 years of industry experience and will share management responsibilities of the company’s growing scaffolding business.

“The number of Danos scaffolding projects and team members has grown over the past few years, so the time was right to bring in seasoned leadership to help lead the organization,” said owner Mark Danos. “Clay and John bring valuable experience that will benefit Danos and our customers.”

A resident of Denham Springs, Daugherty has 23 years of industry experience. He started his career as a scaffold laborer and then worked offshore as a scaffolding supervisor. He worked at Sunbelt Rentals for 13 years, where he served as a project manager and later as an operations manager. Daugherty holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Southeastern Louisiana University.

Moberly is an Air Force veteran with 24 years of oil and gas construction experience. After completing his military service, he began working as a roustabout on oil rigs, then moved to field supervisor and branch manager with Sunbelt Rentals. He and his wife live in Campti, Louisiana, located in Natchitoches Parish.

Danos has provided scaffolding services for four years and established it as an independent service line in 2015. Since then, Danos’ scaffolding business has grown from zero to over 70 personnel and currently provides scaffolding services to more than 20 clients. Danos currently offers 10 service lines – automation, coatings, construction, fabrication, materials management, production workforce, project management, scaffolding, shorebase and logistics and specialized consultants – and has 2,200 employees working for clients at job sites in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the Marcellus, Eagle Ford and Permian Basin shale plays.
