Faces of Evotherm: Brandon Milar

Jul 18, 2016

MilarWe are pleased to introduce Brandon Milar, southwest region Technical Marketing Manager. In his role with Ingevity, Brandon takes pride in providing insight into the use of chemistry to improve asphalt pavement performance and construction. At the Utah Asphalt Paving Association 2016 Conference, he recently presented “Anti-strip in Asphalt Pavements,” one of many papers and presentations Brandon has made in his tenure in the asphalt industry. Recently, we sat down with Brandon to learn more about him.

Amy Chiconas (AC): “Name one place in particular where would you like to live.”

Brandon Milar (BM): “On the California coast. Pebble Beach overlooking the golf course at the Cypress Point Club.”

AC: “Who are your heroes in life?”

BM: “My dad and grandpa.”

AC: “Name the one natural talent you’d like to be gifted with.”

BM: “The ability to remember everyone’s name.”

AC: “What’s one of your favorite things about your role at Ingevity?”

BM: “Knowing that by the end of the day I will learn something new.”

Brandon cites his favorite project memory as: “Field support on a project on the north rim of the Grand Canyon. I stood on an overlook and realized the importance of access to the natural wonders of our world.” He is inspired by the wisdom of the legendary Yoda: “Do or do not. There is no try.” When not learning something new or marveling at nature, Brandon can be found cooking and enjoying a great meal with close friends and family, gardening, landscaping, and constructing parade floats.
