Meet Miles Aucoin, Owner & Founder 

Miles Aucoin is the Owner and Founder of EPC Planners. Prior to launching EPC Planners Miles was a Global Director of Project Controls at Jacobs Engineering, and he continues to teach in the Construction Management Program at University of Houston. Throughout his career, Miles has developed an expert understanding of Project Execution for both Home Office Engineering and Construction. Miles' unique approach to Management is one centered on understanding the person behind the professional. This is accomplished by understanding employee's individual motivating factors, then putting them in a position to achieve their goals by working successfully within an organization's framework.  

Miles founded EPC Planners to understand local job markets around the world, the skill and competency of Project Controls experts in those markets, then match the right opportunities to the most deserving candidates. Bringing the right opportunities to the right people is the driving idea behind EPC Planners. Bringing ideal candidates to companies looking to hire Project Controls is his way of giving back to the Project Controls community.
