Mike Sturgill of Xylem Dewatering receives the NUCA Associate Member of the Year Award from NUCA CEO Doug Carlson.

“Mike’s hard work and dedication to this association and its members was exceptional,” said Doug Carlson, NUCA Chief Executive Officer. “Helping to establish two new NUCA Chapters over the space of the last 18 months is an extraordinary achievement. Mike’s tireless efforts to help establish and expand both chapters made a big difference in their rapid growth. It’s members like Mike that make NUCA stronger each year, and we are thankful Xylem and him are part of this association and our industry.”

Sturgill’s indispensable work to help establish two new NUCA chapters made him a top choice to receive an association award this year. He is a dedicated industry professional who moved mountains to help establish and grow NUCA’s East Tennessee Chapter. This new local chapter was officially chartered in 2021. Sturgill provided industry guidance, connected us with his industry resources, and delivered incredible support to many of East Tennessee’s local events.

Sturgill also played a large part in the growth and success of NUCA Texas through his company Xylem, who is a Premiere Partner for NUCA Texas. Sturgill went the extra mile and throughout late 2021 dedicated much of his time towards the establishment of the NUCA Gulf Coast Chapter. He also serves as a part-time board of director of the Gulf Coast chapter. That chapter was officially chartered in March 2022 at NUCA’s annual meeting and covers the Houston, Galveston, and Beaumont, Texas, region for utility contractors.

Sturgill is a utility construction industry veteran. He has been in the Pump Rentals and Sales Industry for 16 years with the last 12 years with Xylem Dewatering Solutions, Inc. a division of Xylem, Inc., and also a 2022 NUCA National Partner. At Xylem, he worked in various roles from outside sales representative, to branch manager, and currently is the Regional Sales Manager covering 10 direct-to-market facilities in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and East Tennessee. Sturgill is based out of Naylor, Georgia, located in the southern part of the state.

The “NUCA Associate Member of the Year Award” is presented annually to an associate member who has made a significant contribution on the national level to the industry and the association. The 2021 award was personally presented to Sturgill by NUCA leadership at the association’s Annual Meeting held in March of this year in San Antonio, Texas.
