The Utility Expo announced Brian Metcalf, CEO of Ring-O-Matic, has been named show chair for the 2025 show. He will lead the exhibitions management committee, a volunteer group of utility construction industry executives for overall show planning.

The Utility Expo, named the number one trade show in the utility industry, returned in 2023 with record-setting attendance. Over 21,000 utility construction professionals from all 50 states, as well as 60 counties, attended the show in Louisville, Ky. Utility Expo returns to the Kentucky Exposition Center in October 2025.

"AEM is delighted to have Brian as the new chair for the 2025 Utility Expo," said Utility Show Director Brianne Somers. "His experience and leadership will play a key role in our team executing the vision we have for our next show. We look forward to seeing what Brian and the rest of the management committee achieve."

Metcalf started his career in central Iowa farming and is a 1989 graduate of Drake University with a bachelor's degree in accounting and finance. He joined Ring-O-Matic in 2015 and purchased the business in December of 2017. Over the last 8 years, he has grown the company into a major supplier and manufacturer of vacuum excavation equipment, serving the underground utility contractor market segments, soft excavation contractors and the general needs of safe digging practices. Ring-O-Matic sells through over 85 dealership locations between North America and service centers internationally.

The Utility Expo returns to Louisville and the Kentucky Exposition Center Oct. 7-9, 2025.
