Seismic Surveys will continue to be led by David Miller, P.G. (President and Co-Founder), Patrick Hastings, Jr., P.G. (VP of Operations), and Eric Rehwoldt, P.E., P.G. (VP of Engineering).
We are thrilled to partner with Argus Monitoring Solutions on Seismic Surveys’ next phase of growth,” commented David and Elena Miller, co-founders of Seismic Surveys. “We partnered with Argus due to its commitment to back the existing Seismic Surveys team and culture, and the unique opportunity to pair Seismic Surveys with a growing platform focused on seismic and environmental monitoring services.”

We are excited to supplement Argus’ diverse monitoring and inspection services offerings and expand its footprint across the Mid-Atlantic, East Coast, and Sun Belt regions,” commented Cormac Kelly, CXO of Argus Monitoring Solutions. “We look forward to investing additional resources to help drive the companies’ organic growth and serve our customers with state-of-the-art technology in the years ahead.
