Denver, Colo – The International Erosion Control Association (IECA) welcomes Oliver Norton and Kellyn Campbell as new board members and Gustavo Salerno, CPESC, PE as returning member. New board members were installed at the IECA Annual Conference in Minneapolis last February.

Norton is the Australasia and South Pacific Business Development Manager for Profile Products and DuraVeg – PGG Wrightson Turf – based in Queensland Australia. Norton has over 10 years of experience in the soil and erosion control industry including mining, civil infrastructure, oil and gas and renewable energy. He manages the business development, sales and marketing of a comprehensive line of revegetation, erosion and sediment control and storm water treatment devices. He is a long-time member of IECA and has served on the board of the IECA Australasia chapter.

Campbell has worked in erosion control and stormwater for 14 years. She entered the industry as the Sales and Marketing Manager for GeoHay, LLC, where she worked for 10 years. She was promoted to President and remained at the company for three additional years before choosing to form her own consulting company serving the needs of manufacturers in the industry. In 2016, she began serving as national chapter organizer for Women 4 H2O (formerly Women of Water), an organization representing more than 300 women in the water industry to empower, encourage, and educate each other. In June 2019, she became the Secretary of the Southeast chapter of IECA.

Salerno has previously served on the board and is president of firm INMAC S.A. He has served as President for the IECA Iberoamerican Chapter where he had opportunities to share his extensive work history with colleagues from different countries. He has been an active IECA member since 1997. From 1989 to 2003, Salerno was professor of a General Hydraulics Course at the Faculty of Engineering – University of Buenos Aires. He has given numerous lectures and presented at numerous conferences regarding hydraulic engineering and erosion and sediment control projects in Argentina, USA, México, Cuba, Perú, Panamá, Brazil, Spain, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile and Bolivia.

“We are excited to welcome new and returning members to the board,” stated IECA CEO, Samantha A. Roe, IOM, “With the reunification with the Australasian Chapter last year Oliver from the Australasia chapter will be a great addition as we continue to reconnect the regions. With Gustavo returning to the board, we will be able to advance our efforts in developing a new chapter in Europe. Kellyn’s background in the industry will also be key in helping move our young professionals’ group forward in addition to encouraging more women to join and participate in IECA. We have ambitious goals to grow our association globally in 2022 and welcoming these key players to the board will help us surpass our growth expectations.”
