As manager of the Underground Utility Division, Elswick manages all aspects of utility location for Clary & Associates’ design projects. Whether utilities are shown from “as-builts,” or design plans, are field located or shown from subsurface excavation, Elswick’s extensive experience in PD&E projects, design and right-of-way surveying ensures his success in meeting client needs.

He also is a charter member of the Jacksonville chapter of the American Society of Highway Engineers.
A native of Virginia, Elswick served in the Armed Forces and spent five years as a small business owner before making professional surveying and mapping his primary career.

He and his wife Jan, a Homestead native, have two daughters.
“It has been very enjoyable to work with Greg (Clary),” said Elswick. “I’ve been in this business almost 40 years, and these are the best 15 I’ve spent. I would recommend anyone to work with this company. Greg demands that you do a good job, and in the event of a crisis, he is the first one in line to help. I’ve worked for small and large companies, and for many in between, and I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else but here.”
