Speaker Information
Mike Parilac, Planet Underground

Mike spent 14 years with a major manufacturer of pipe and cable locate equipment, the first years learning and performing gas leak surveys. His next ten years in sales gave him an opportunity to learn locating through the sales of pipe and cable locators. For many years, Mike worked closely with their contract one-call locating operations as they grew into a sizable provider of services to gas, electric, and telecommunication utilities.

 

After continuing work in the contract locating business until the summer of 1998, Mike had an opportunity to write a business plan for building a pipe and cable locating training program from scratch. Staking University became the first fixed-based pipe and cable locate training program with year-round scheduled classes. To date, Staking University has performed work for over 300 customers including distribution utility companies, corridor utility companies, engineering companies, military bases, manufacturers, contract locating companies, and training companies.

 

In late 2001, Mike purchased Underground Focus Magazine, the only publication in the US entirely dedicated to underground damage prevention. Shortly after assuming operation of Staking University, the training program was combined with both Underground Focus Magazine and a small contract locating operation to form Planet Underground. Today, in additional to training, publishing and locating underground facilities, Planet Underground producesa series of training events/seminars with a decidedly real-world feel at their facility in Manteno, IL.
