Member Spotlight: Deep South’s Jeremy Landry

-Even though his grandfather, industry legend Camille Landry, is the founder of Deep South Crane & Rigging, Jeremy Landry has never had a “cush job” at the company. Like so many families in the crane, rigging and specialized transportation sector, the Landrys are proponents of the adage “you learn by doing.” And he has done exactly that, trying his hand at nearly every single aspect of the business. “I have pretty much done every craft job at Deep South,” Landry said. “I started working during summers as a helper when I was 16, in 1996. However, my official full-time hire year was around 2001.” Working his way through the ranks, he started out as a helper in the Baton Rouge yard, and then he worked in the fabrication shop, machine shop and mechanic shop. “From there, I moved on to be an oiler, rigger, engineering assistant, estimator, project manager and then finally vice president,” he said. “In my current role, there are many different hats I wear. However, my main role is overseeing the day-to-day operations while maintaining oversight in the sales department and collaborating on large bids.” And now, as SC&RA Crane & Rigging Group Chair, Landry is poised to host the industry at the upcoming Crane & Rigging Workshop in Oklahoma City. He recently talked with D.Ann Shiffler, editor of American Cranes & Transport Magazine, and discussed challenges facing the industry and how his company is taking them on. Read more.
