ORCO Block & Hardscape CEO Rick Muth has assumed a new role as chairman and appointed Dave Echternach as his successor. Echternach has a nearly 20-year track record of leadership success at the southern California concrete masonry operator, serving as sales manager and vice president. He joined ORCO after tours of duty in financing, rental operations, product support and sales management with Caterpillar Inc. and Shepherd Machinery Co. 

The move enables Muth to develop closer relationships with business partners, work on special projects, and provide guidance to the growing team of leaders at ORCO—all while ensuring the same commitment to product quality, customer support, and family values that have defined the business for over 75 years. “I look forward to many years of innovation, resilience, and both new and renewed relationships with ORCO staff and customers,” he affirms.
