Clary & Associates Welcomes Mike Bellars to Team of Company Crew Chiefs

Jacksonville, FL — June 23, 2006 — Jacksonville-based Clary & Associates Professional Surveyors and Mappers is pleased to announce Mike Bellars as the company’s newest survey crew chief.

“Mike is a welcomed addition to our team, and his extensive background in surveying stems from an outstanding work ethic and self-discipline that serves our clients well,” said Greg Clary, founder and president of Clary & Associates. “We have tremendous confidence in Mike’s ability as a crew chief. He approaches every project with a high level of professionalism, and we look forward to his rise through the company ranks.” 

As Survey Crew Chief, Bellars oversees a variety of projects performed by the company’s survey field crews, which are comprised of survey technicians, rodmen and instrument operators. His other primary responsibilities include: project management, instrument operation, setting boundaries, compiling field notes; recording topographical, boundary and as-built surveys; and recording wetland locations.

With the majority of his surveying experience gained in the United States Marine Corps, Bellars brings more than nine years of on-the-job experience to his position with Clary & Associates. His previous role as a staff sergeant in Field Artillery Survey included a variety of specialized training, including coursework for Marine Artillery Operations Chief. Bellars’ future career plans include gaining extensive survey experience in the civilian sector, and completing the Survey Technician I and II certification programs.

“There’s a world of difference between military and civilian surveying,” said Mike Bellars, survey crew chief for Clary & Associates. “Comparatively, the technology and equipment are so dissimilar. I really enjoy my work at Clary & Associates, particularly because it’s a positive, supportive environment where I can grow and learn through my day-to-day work.”  

A native of New York, Bellars has made Jacksonville his home for the past one and a half years. As an outdoors enthusiast, he enjoys golf, NASCAR and football, and he remains a loyal New York Jets fan. Bellars also enjoys traveling and spending quality family time with his young son and daughter.
