The Board of Directors of Underground Safety Alliance (USA), the umbrella non-profit organization for Indiana 811 and Kentucky 811, announced in late February that Justin Sell has been named the new Executive Director for the organization.
Sell has been with USA since 2011 and most recently served as Director of Operations and Technology for the past four years. In 2021, Sell led the organization’s transition to a new software platform, Exactix. Prior to joining USA, Sell was a Senior Systems Engineer for three years at USIC. In his new role, Sell will lead all strategic planning, administration, program execution and staff management for the “Call 811 Before You Dig” centers in Indiana and Kentucky. In 2021, USA staff processed a combined 2.1 million inbound requests online and by phone from professional excavators and home owners, resulting in 12.5 million notifications to member facility operators.
“Justin Sell is the right person to lead the Underground Safety Alliance team in providing the best service to all members and everyone who digs in Indiana and Kentucky,” said George Kemp, Chairman of the USA Board of Directors. “His deep experience in utility damage prevention and previous leadership roles in executing USA’s mission made him the ideal candidate for the important public safety work this organization provides every day.”
