Gina Carolan - Director
Director, Gina Carolan is responsible for CULTEC’s overall marketing strategy and brand positioning, ensuring it remains strong in each of the company’s chosen target markets. In collaboration with sales and business development, Carolan also works to identify new territories and map out effective ways to capture market share. As the stormwater industry has changed over the years, she has kept pace by developing new ways to take product to market. Most notably, Carolan used her existing relationships to have CULTEC products included in hydraulic modeling programs, such as HydroCAD®, Autodesk® Storm and Sanitary Analysis and Bentley® PondPack. Before this venture, no proprietary stormwater products of any kind were included in these types of software programs. This paved the way for the industry as a whole to capitalize on these platforms for product design and promotion. In addition to strategic partnerships, Carolan spearheaded the creation StormGenie®– the industry’s first automated drawing program which bridges the gap between system calculation and the correlating CAD file output. Carolan’s enthusiasm for company-wide innovation and has been fueled in part by her personal passion for self-improvement and team building.

Robert DiTullio, Sr. – Inventor/Founder - previous Owner
INVENTOR OF THE PLASTIC CHAMBER
Robert DiTullio, Sr., was the founder of CULTEC Inc. A graduate of Norwalk State Technical Institute with a major in Chemical Engineering, he served as a chemist and research scientist for a major pharmaceutical company before switching careers to join his father and uncle in building, construction, pre-cast concrete and excavation. In 1982, while owner of a local concrete product manufacturing company, DiTullio Sr. recognized there was a need in the market for a smarter, more economical alternative to concrete tri-galleys. As an answer to this, he proposed the idea of a plastic drainage chamber to the State of Connecticut. After three years of designing and prototyping, the first high-capacity plastic drainage chamber capable of supporting traffic loading was introduced to the industry. Out of this ground-breaking invention, CULTEC was born. As of April 2022, Mr. DiTullio sold CULTEC to Advanced Drainage Systems (ADS).
