Mr. Vettel has the role of Chief Executive Officer of the Geocon Group of companies and serves as President of Geocon Incorporated in San Diego. His role includes tracking and visiting Geocon’s western US offices, as well as, the day to day operations of the San Diego office. Joe began his geotechnical engineering career in 1990. Since then, he has gained extensive experience primarily with public agency clients. He is particularly well known for his work with Caltrans and his clear understanding of structural requirements. Since taking the reins in 2010, Mr. Vettel and the ownership group of Geocon have guided our firm through the worst recession in 50 years coming out in a solid, financially-healthy position ready to grow through the rest of the decade.
Joe is on the Board of HomeAid using connection with the construction/real estate industry to build shelters for the transitionally homeless. When not at work, he enjoys spending time with family and friends. He and his wife have two young children and enjoy hiking, biking, snorkeling and traveling with them. On that rare occasion when he can break away with friends, volleyball and brewery hopping are generally on the menu.
