In his new role, Horjes leads the establishment and expansion of the Diamond Grid product into the USA and Canadian markets— two regions which have been identified as key areas of focus for Diamond Grid. Horjes is well credentialled in business management and strategy, hailing from a strong background of business development, investment banking, and mergers and acquisitions of key businesses. Horjes says that he is excited to be joining Diamond Grid, a global market leader in surface stabilization and erosion control systems:
“Diamond Grid is a unique and innovative product with inimitable strength characteristics. The concept is simple, but the applications are boundless and there a lot of excitement within the mining, agricultural, construction, and landscaping sectors in response to it. Diamond Grid offers the cost savings, easily solves erosion issues and makes construction of paving and hardstand areas a breeze. Its application as an alternative to traditional concrete formwork is saving customers time and significant costs. It is great to have the opportunity to work with a product that services everyone from large scale industrial customers to DIY’s.”

The Corporate 100
Alaska Business has been celebrating the corporations that have a significant impact on Alaska’s economy since 1993. At the time, the corporations weren’t ranked as the list didn’t have specific ranking criteria.
