Eco Express, Erosion Control Specialists
Hard workers with hands-on knowledge and experience
Since 2003, Eco Express has helped owners and contractors ensure their construction projects meet EPA regulations. Our team has the hands-on experience and actively work with regulators to define best practices.
Russ Britton is a native of small town Ahoskie, North Carolina. He grew up helping with the family farm and oil distribution business, and occasionally (okay, frequently) sneaking away to surf the Outer Banks.
Long before the establishment of Eco Express, Russ enjoyed a successful career in banking where he spent 12 years building a financial consulting business with UBS in Wilmington, NC. Determined to operate his own business, Russ eventually returned to his true passion for working outdoors, solving real environmental issues, and protecting natural resources. Russ founded Eco Express in 2003 as a way of blending his love for the land with his ability to help people find economical solutions for their environmental problems.
Russ currently lives in Wilmington, NC with his beautiful wife Catherine and their two adventurous teenage daughters. He brings his golden retriever Mocha to work whenever possible and has samples of all varieties of soil within reach of his desk. And occasionally (okay, frequently) still sneaks away to surf.
Steve is originally from Mt. Sinai, NY. He holds a Bachelor degree in Turfgrass Science from Pennsylvania State University as well as an Associates in Computing Graphics Engineering from The State University of New York Alfred. He made his way to North Carolina 9 years ago after receiving an ultimatum from his now wife, Rachel, to take her somewhere with less black ice and more sun. Steve was hired by Russ soon after the inception of Eco Express and through hard work, perserverance, and self-learning, Steve has worked his way up the ranks to find himself the Chief Operating Officer of the company. Steve is focused, reliable, and detail-oriented. He was instrumental in helping the company shift focus during the housing crisis, and he is critical in our daily operations. Steve doesn‘t have any free time that we know of, but occasionally (okay frequently) we do find him enjoying some of his wife’s wonderful cookies at his desk, while working, which he is always doing!
Scott has 20 years of experience in waste/residential services management with responsibility for multiple services in municipalities serving thousands of residents and businesses. This depth of experience means that Scott knows how to deliver cost-effective and EPA-compliant solutions for Eco Express customers.
Kim Mitchell is a North Carolina native. She has a Bachelors degree in Earth Science from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Kim has been with EcoExpress LLC since 2005, when she was hired to do storm water maintenance. Shortly thereafter, she was asked to help with office management where she proved so invaluable that she hasn’t been allowed back outside since! Kim occasionally sneaks away from her computer to throw tennis balls for her dog Patrick.
