RC DRILLING / WATER BORING WA
Glenn has been around drill rigs for as long as he can remember, after following in the footsteps of his father who had been a driller for most of his life. After learning how to drill a hole with a cable tool rig at the age of 15, Glenn went onto mud rotary, water boring, wireline coring, and diamond drilling, and then finally RC. After 30 years of field experience he stepped off the drillers’ platform and into head office, where he took over as General Manager in 2012 for Egan Drilling. Providing high quality drilling services with innovative drilling equipment operated by industry professionals is the direction in which he drives the company.
David started his professional career working in IT for Bunnings, where he quickly took over an entire department in IT Support. After 5 years there he achieved his Commercial Pilot License as a Helicopter Pilot with Heliwest, before launching the Albany Heliwest Base and Flying School and working in this area until 2009. Eager to demonstrate his ability to learn and apply a range of practical skills, David came over to the Drilling Industry as an offsider for Egan Drilling Services. He quickly worked his way up through the ranks, first as a driller and then as a supervisor. After a year’s hiatus he returned to the company to take on the position of Operations Manager, where at present he encourages all of his crew to maintain the highest possible safety standards in the field.
Being a hands-on manager, he makes regular trips to site to oversee the day-to-day operations of the rigs, which allows for a close link between the guys on the ground and Egan Drilling management.
