John Ruga has led the company since its inception. As CEO, he continues to utilize the same on-the-ground leadership that he began with in 1998. Beginning his career in his father's small commercial construction company, John has always been at home managing operations from the cab of a crane or bulldozer. His visionary mindset has allowed NEP to grow far beyond his first idea of creating a manufacturing center for precast basements in New Jersey. He now finds himself at the helm of one of the largest precast operations in the United States.
John grew up in a small community in South Jersey and believes strongly in working hard to give back to the people around him. His Christian faith is woven into his everyday business decisions and the way in which he treats employees and customers alike.
Lorie Ruga has been the quiet leading force of many aspects of Northeast Precast over the past 20 years. As John's longtime closest advisor, she brings a deep knowledge of NEP's fundamental principles and history to the Chief Operations Officer position. Previously she singlehandedly took care of accounting, scheduling, and human resource needs throughout the company. She now directly oversees these departments and continues to ensure that employees, customers, and vendors are all represented fairly in NEP's business decisions.
Lorie is deeply rooted in the construction industry having begun in the Heavy Equipment sector before taking a leadership position at Northeast Precast shortly after it was founded.

During his tenure at the company he has overseen record setting growth in consecutive years.

Persistently turning his and others' ideas into reality, Justin has brought his blue-collar background all the way to the Executive level. While overseeing steel fabrication and field operation efforts, Justin continues to bring industry leading innovation to all areas of the company's operations.
