ECCoE’s Founder and CEO

With over 30 years of experience, founder and CEO Blair Hough brings his extensive knowledge and network to assist with every project. From design to manufacture, testing and commercialization, Blair’s expert guidance can be seen in every ECCoE project.

Blair’s philosophy of innovation and client-focused decisions became the foundation of ECCoE. While he is an engineer at heart, his experience has encompassed a variety of projects, from submarine design and construction, to artificial heart development and pharmaceutical technologies.

Even as the CEO, you will still find Blair working on most programs, standing side-by-side with the clients and consultants (most likely in his Converse sneakers and Australian hat).


Walt Disney

Walt Disney had a vision to have fun, and his attention to detail is unmatched. His ability to innovate and his emphasis on imagineering is something I’ve tried to incorporate into ECCoE’s core.

“If you can dream it, you can do it.”– Walt Disney

Ronald Reagan

Reagan believed in the country and he instilled pride and patriotism in the hearts of the citizens of America. He brought out the best in people and believed that both the country and the people of America could accomplish anything they put their minds to.

“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.” -Ronald Reagan

Mickey Mantle

I always looked up to Mickey Mantle as a child. He led his team through ups and downs, and his love of the game was infectious. His dedication was inspiring to others, and he gave his all to the sport.

“Somebody once asked me if I ever went up to the plate trying to hit a home run. I said, ‘Sure, every time.'” -Mickey Mantle
