Superior Rigging Adds Zach Olsen as Chief Operating Officer


Oct. 13, 2023 — Superior Rigging & Erecting Co. has hired Zach Olsen as its chief operating officer (COO).

With over 18 years of managing successful construction projects, Olsen brings leadership and experience to his new role.

Olsen is a 2008 graduate of Auburn University with a degree in civil engineering.

His career highlights include managing the special projects division of Turner Construction Company and being the senior project manager for the State Farm Arena renovation in Atlanta, Georgia.

The project put $115 million of work in place over five months and involved more than 1,100 daily trade workers during the 2018 offseason.

Olsen's career also includes being project manager for Clemson University’s Littlejohn Coliseum renovation, project engineer for the University of Georgia’s Veterinary Medicine Learning Center, and business development engineer, and cost engineer.

Olsen's history with Superior Rigging traces back to 2005, when his construction-industry t-shirt featured Superior Rigging.

Now, nearly two decades later, he will contribute to the company's ongoing success.

Superior’s CEO and president, Patrick Lewis, said, "The addition of Zach to the Superior team is a testament to the lasting relationships we build in this industry. His wealth of experience and commitment to excellence make him an ideal leader for our team. We are eager to see the positive impact he will bring to our operations."
