MEP Conference Honors Jeff Elwell, E.M. Duggan as Innovator of the Year

February 7, 2022
The MCAA 2021 MEP Innovator of the Year award goes to Jeff Elwell, Director of Innovation and Technology from E.M. Duggan Company in Boston, MA.

The MEP Innovation Conference honored members from each association for their contributions to innovation and research with a new award – The MEP Innovator of the Year. Leaders from MCAA presented the inaugural award to Jeff Elwell, Director of Innovation and Technology from E.M. Duggan Company in Boston, MA.

The innovator award was based on Elwell’s willingness to collaborate, share research and present at meetings like the MEP Innovation Conference. Elwell was selected for the award through his work on the MCAA’s Innovative Technology Committee and his multiple presentations at the MEP Innovation Conference. As Director of Preconstruction Services at The Waldinger Corporation and the committee’s chair, Stacy Zerr, described in her presentation, “[Jeff] has been great about not only giving clear and honest feedback on the phone, in meetings but also has stepped up repeatedly at conferences like this to present to the industry at large.”

NECA and SMACNA also presented innovation awards to members that exemplified similar attributes. Jared Christman from Big State Electric and Steve Hunt from Dee Cramer both earned the NECA and SMACNA awards, respectively.

If you would like to nominate a colleague for the award in the future, please send submissions to Sean McGuire at smcguire@mcaa.org.
