He is also a member of the TRB Standing Committee on Structures Maintenance and serves as chair of the Bridge Steel Coatings Subcommittee (AHD30(2)).

Ault has worked with all manner of concrete and steel infrastructure, and has had direct responsibility for multiple contracts with the federal government and various state and local authorities (including the TriBorough Bridge Authority in the New York City) and has directed coatings and corrosion research projects for the National Shipbuilding Research Program, US Navy, Marine Corps, Army and Federal Highway Administration.

Ault resides in Ocean City, New Jersey, and is a member and former chair of the Ocean City Environmental Commission. During his time as chair, he assisted in the development of the Open Space Plan within the city’s Master Plan. He is a member of the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions (ANJEC), supports initiatives to study and educate others about the coastal New Jersey ecosystem and helps to maintain an osprey nesting site educational live camera feed. Ault is the general manager of his family’s bait and tackle shop, and he enjoys making custom fishing rods. In his free time, he and his wife, their border collie, family and friends can be found fishing the waters of South Jersey.

About the Awards

The PaintSquare Prestige Awards are divided into three major categories: Top People, Top Innovations and Top Products. Each category includes a series of awards for people working in a given capacity and for products that fulfill a given role on a protective coatings project.
 
With a focus on the professionals who make the industry work and the coatings and equipment that are used every day in the field, the program is accepting nominations through June, but an early-bird discount for product and innovation nominations applies only through May 10. (Nominations for people are at no cost.)
 
Voting will commence after the publication of the fall issue of PaintSquare Press, in which nominees will be listed; winners will be announced in the winter issue of PSP.
