HomeAbout QuantaLeadership


Quanta Services has been built on a history of strong, innovative and entrepreneurial leaders.

Our founder and first CEO John Colson was driven to create solutions for a growing and changing industry – and that stands true today, more than 20 years later.

We continue to follow the unique, de-centralized model Colson put into place. We acquire the best companies with the most skilled leaders – and continue to trust them to do what they do, adding the balance sheet and resources of a Fortune 300 company to back them up. We have had only three CEOs at the helm during our last two decades as a company – and each has significantly grown the company during his tenure.

Since Duke Austin stepped into his role as CEO in March 2016, revenues have increased more than 47 percent across the company.
