Ian Chaput

Truseal President

TruSeal Asphalt & Concrete President and Founder Ian Chaput discovered his passion for a job well done at his home while growing up in Severna Park, MD. Weekend mornings spent mowing lawns and completing other chores with his parents and two older brothers taught him the value of hard work. While attending Severna Park High School, he continued to cultivate his tireless work ethic while working in the bag room at Chartwell Country Club. These interactions helped him discover a taste for exceptional customer service.

While completing his bachelor’s in Business & Marketing at the University of Delaware, he spent his summers learning the asphalt trade from a trusted mentor. He continued to learn and gain more experience, each summer receiving more and more customers. After graduation, he worked in a sales position for Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation, obtaining valuable experience overseeing field crews and managing customers. Recently, he devoted full-time energies and officially founded TruSeal Asphalt & Concrete as the culmination of the core values that shaped him and his innate entrepreneurial spirit.

Ian is the leading face and presence of TruSeal Asphalt & Concrete, overseeing sales, big picture planning, customer relations, and the company’s social media presence. In his free time, Ian heads straight to the great outdoors where he can be found hunting, fishing or out on the golf course.
