Management

Leadership so strong, we suspect they’re reinforced with rebar.

Craig F. Sorensen
Co-Founder

When Craig started this business, he thought he was starting a company. Instead he was establishing a legacy – a legacy of quality, integrity, and dedicated service. It didn’t take long for Craig to build SCI into one of the Intermountain West’s biggest success stories. 

Craig began his career in the industry working as an employee for the telephone company, Mountain Bell.  When they began subcontracting a lot of their work out to 3rd party contractors, Craig saw an opportunity and decided to start SCI in 1977.  With a loan for an old beaten-down backhoe and a work ethic that was unmatched, he started the company from scratch and slowly built it into the great organization that it is today.  It wasn’t always easy, but he was determined to make it a success.  Craig has made a statement by keeping SCI a family oriented company since its inception and it is important to him that it continues to be run with the same core values that he’s cultivated since the beginning.  Safety, Quality, Integrity, Respect, and Teamwork!

Craig has attended both Weber State University and Davis Applied Vocational Center. He has also gained such extensive field knowledge that he is proficient in all areas of the business, from office operations to field operations to equipment operations.  Craig has a private pilot’s license, and previously sat on the board of Directors for the Associated Builders and Contractors of Utah. He officially retired in 2020 and now enjoys spending his days on the golf course with Debbie or in the mountains at his cabin.


Debra Sorensen
Co-Founder

The second SCI became a company, Debbie became a part of it. She jokes that she’s been with us since the beginning of time. Debbie has been a critical component in our overall success. She has worked as our Treasurer and Office Manager and until recently, she’s also been a Controller.

Debbie is self-taught in accounting and has taken many professional training courses. She also earned the honor of Master Graduate by Rapport Leadership International in November 2006.

Because of the strong sense of family within the SCI organization, Debbie’s work has been more than just doing a job. She has had a vested interest in helping her sons grow and in further developing the company.  Outside the office she loves traveling, golfing, camping and spending time with her grandchildren.  Debbie also retired in early 2020.


Cody Sorensen 
CEO

Cody started working for SCI off and on during the summers when he was still in high school. Initially, he worked in the shop cleaning equipment and trucks and keeping the yard and building clean. He particularly remembers the first summer being too young to drive so he would  have to ride his bike to work on several occasions.

After graduation, he worked several years in a variety of different field and office positions while he enrolled at Weber State University.  Upon gradating WSU with his B.S. degree in Information Systems and Technology, he eventually became the IT department manager which he ran for over 7 years. 

During some internal restructuring starting in 2012, Cody transitioned into the role of CFO.  While he hadn’t previously had any formal training in finance, he always had a natural talent for working with numbers.  Eventually in early 2020 he was promoted to CEO after the retirement of our founder, Craig Sorensen.  Cody’s primary focus is on the financial success of the company.  He ensures the company is operating efficiently, profitably, and investing its cash flow wisely to keep SCI running healthy.


Jeremy Bowles
President

Jeremy has been a key employee at SCI since 1995, starting his career as a laborer in the Drops department and eventually moving on to directional drilling.  He has worked his way up through the ranks of Foreman, Project Management, Estimating and Sales, Fleet Management, Materials Management and our Safety department. 

Jeremy has had a major impact on the success of SCI over the years and doesn’t hesitate to jump-in and take charge of a situation to help fix it or make the business run smoother.  He is a natural problem solver and his influence and direction has been a key contributor to making SCI the best it can be. 

Jeremy has served in nearly every department we have at SCI at one point or another during his long career so it was only fitting that he was eventually promoted to President of the company in early 2020.  Jeremy’s focus is on the operations and management of the business.  He ensures that we are all on the same page, focused on the goal, and that we are delivering the best quality product to all of our wonderful customers!


Chad Sorensen
Executive Vice President

You could call Chad a lifelong member of our company, but his official tenure with SCI began straight out of high school when he signed on as a Drops Installer. Since then Chad has worked especially hard to gain a wide range of experience. He has held a variety of positions within the company including Foreman, Project Manager, Director, and was President of SCI from 2004-2020.

Chad is a Master Graduate of Rapport Leadership International. He is also the director of BUY (Building Utah Youth) Foundation, a youth organization committed to establishing leadership skills in our future business leaders.  When not on the job, Chad is often seen trap shooting, hunting, camping, and playing softball.




Clint Sorensen 
Vice President

Clint has worked for SCI since 1997.  Clint started his career at SCI literally at the ground floor, installing telephone lines in our Drops Division, quickly being promoted to field supervisor.  Clint has also worked in our Aerial Division doing overhead CATV and then moving on to underground installation of coax cable.  Clint has spliced fiber optic cable, sweep tested, and certified CATV systems.

Clint was promoted to Wasatch Barricade division manager in 2004, and controlled all of SCI’s dispatching of dump trucks, transports and vacuum trucks.  Clint ran this successfully for over 10 years and eventually his skills were needed in project management.  Besides being certified at fiber splicing, Clint is a UDOT certified traffic control supervisor and flagger certified.  Clint has evolved into one of most successful project managers.

Clint has completed many classes in leadership, communications, dispatching, and training on various computer software programs. Clint is also a Director on our Executive Team.


Chase Sorensen 
Vice President

Chase has been a full-time employee of SCI since 2000 but he’s been a part of our company his entire life. Over the span of his career he has served in many different positions. He got his start working in our Fleet department assisting our mechanics in maintaining our equipment. He was quickly promoted into the field initially working as a laborer on an excavation crews. He was promoted to the position of Buried Service Wire Foreman and then moved into our Horizontal Directional Drilling department as a Foreman. He successfully ran a Bore crew for 4 years.

Chase is currently using the knowledge he obtained from working in the field for 8 years as on OSP Estimator. Chase attended Weber State University and is also a Rapport Leadership Master Graduate.


Kelly Nielsen 
Vice President

Kelly Nielsen has done just about everything since starting with SCI in August 1978. He started out as a Cable Installer and worked his way up through the positions of Operator, Foreman, Superintendent, Project Manager, and COO. He now works as SCI’s Vice President and oversees our wireless cell tower crews throughout the western United States as well as managing our high profile outside plant construction projects. People who work with Kelly appreciate his enthusiastic approach to everything he does in life.

When Kelly is not in the office, he likes hunting, scuba diving, and getting away in the mountains. He can often be heard bragging about his four children. Kelly really enjoys working for a company that cares about its employees, and he is excited to see SCI expand as its operations enter new states and become more diversified.
