Peter Rodriguez – President ekō Solutions

Hello – I’m Stephanie Conzelman, Stakeholder Engagement Director with Land Betterment. We are excited to share the fourth interview in the five-part series titled, “Meet the ekō Solutions Management Team.”

In the previous episodes, we had the opportunity to get to know three senior members of the ekō team - Stetson Schaible, General Manager, Josh Caleau, Finance Administrator and Alex Hutcheson, Technical Team Lead. These are the guys who are driving ekō Solutions forward every day.

Recently, I met with Peter Rodriguez, President of ekō Solutions and we spoke about why his team is poised to continue innovating at ekō Solutions and taking the Company to new levels.

Pete spoke about how invaluable it is that this team has a breadth of knowledge and experience. He said, “We try to bring in folks who will challenge one another. So, when we walk into new building situations, someone on the team will most likely have encountered a particular building situation that is unique to this project. Someone somewhere on our team has delt with the situation before. We can create just about anything and at this point we are making the custom projects repeatable and scalable.”


ekō Solutions, a division of Land Betterment a Certified B Corporation, is rapidly growing and now offers a full array of dwelling solutions for commercial, recreational, residential and crisis recovery using customized up-cycled shipping containers. These sustainable and energy-efficient structures combine contemporary design with practicality.

With growth it is so important to have the right team in place in order to move the Company forward in the smartest possible way. We have an amazing and capable team ready to bring our innovative up-cycled shipping container dwellings to market.

Our final interview in the series will air in December and will feature Kirk Taylor, Land Betterment’s Co-Founder. He will speak about Land Betterment’s mission of fostering a positive impact through upcycling former coal mining and industrial sites to create sustainable community development and job creation and how ekō Solutions ties into this.
