Leadership Team

As solid as our name.

Solid Steel is home to some of the most expert building professionals you will find anywhere.

We love what we do and we love the people we work with. We’re a close-knit group who have been collaborating for years, bringing consistency and efficiency to every project. But there’s more to each of us than that – we also have lives outside the office and away from the job site. Find out more about our leadership below.

Erin Masula

Erin wears many hats as the President and CEO of Solid Steel Buildings Inc, all of which can be summed up by saying that she ensures customers receive the best products, service and overall experience in their Pre-Engineered Metal Building projects. On a day-to-day basis this means she is visiting jobsites, overseeing supplier relationships, developing marketing communication, managing finances, and anything else that needs to be done to keep things on track. Her dedication is evident in feedback from clients who praise her genuine care and deep-seated sense of duty to see projects through their eyes.

Erin is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with a B.S. in Decision Science. Additionally, she has an M.B.A. from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Prior to her current role at SSB, she had spent over 10 years working in Marketing and Research at Mellon Global Financial and Equitable Gas, before a long stretch at Heinz.

In her free time Erin supports and volunteers with The Wounded Warrior Project, a cause near and dear to her heart as she has two brothers in the military. She also loves to learn and has a passion for cooking new foods for her husband and their two year old daughter.

Michael Masula

Michael_4-2_Finalv2

As VP and COO at Solid Steel, Michael works hard to make certain that SSB over-delivers on customer expectations. His multiple responsibilities include managing Sales and Construction, as well as overseeing building projects and scheduling timelines. Additionally, Michael has a knack for implementing technologies that drive the back office at SSB, and he serves as the resident Building Design Guru.

Michael has over 20 years experience in IT and the Construction/Metal Building industry. He began his career in technology at a very young age and became a successful Sales Engineer during a time when the market began to change every day. Taking his skillset to the Steel Building industry, he saw that there were gaps in both products and services being offered by other companies. Michael set out to change that, and at Solid Steel Buildings, he prides himself on providing solutions, quickly responding to any project issues that may arise and getting things done for his customers (the right way).

In addition to being a go-getter, Michael is a true family man. Outside the office Michael enjoys spending time with his daughter, golfing, as well as grilling, and smoking food on his Big Green Egg.

Adam Kitta

Adam works hard to establish that the highest on-site action standards are followed as the Senior Field Operations and Safety Manager. This means the vast majority of his time is spent in the field on job sites during the actual building phase of projects. He ensures that the SSB team is in place and ready to go on time, and stays on schedule. He also stays current on best practices and certifications to ensure that SSB meets all OSHA regulations and operates using the highest safety standards.

Adam is the man who can answer most any question a customer might have about the building or construction in the field. He brings an upbeat and helpful attitude to every project, which stems from his love of whole building process from design to completion. He loves nothing more than handing the customer the keys at the end of the project.

Adam received training in Metallurgy and Machining for the U.S. Air Force, where he worked as a Fabricator. Since being in the service, he has gained a passion for working with metal and the world of metal buildings, which makes him a natural fit at SSB.

In his free time Adam can be found cooking for friends and family, attending sporting events, or working with the Air Force where is still in the Reserves.
