Chief Executive Officer
Gordon served as a pilot in both the US Air Force and for a commercial airline before becoming involved with pavement maintenance in 1974. Gordon founded CPM in 1979 and has spent his career developing and applying preservation systems for every type of asphalt from driveways to highways.
Joined by Rich Rayner, the brothers established Rayner Equipment Systems in 1982 and have designed and built industry-leading machines to mix and apply a variety of preservation surface treatments.
The brothers opened RaynGuard Protective Materials in 1998 to promote a new, higher-quality line of pavement sealcoat systems.
CPM has performed pavement maintenance throughout the western US as well as in New York, Florida, Alaska, and several overseas locations. In assisting customers, CPM and Rayner Equipment have engineered and overseen projects in Argentina, Chile, Russia, Thailand, China, Australia, and a variety of other locations.
Richard grew up along the seacoast in Massachusetts and took his first job at the age of nine operating a boat shuttle for a marina. His interest in mechanical equipment began at this early age and upon graduating from High School in 1973, Richard began work for General Motors where he was trained in equipment design, maintenance and repair. GM’s training prepared him with a background for his position of problem investigator where responsibilities included troubleshooting warrantee problems, failure trends and design issues.
In 1979 Richard moved to California to begin work with California Pavement Maintenance Company as Equipment Division Manager. During the next several years Richard studied mechanical and hydraulic systems and design. In 1982 Richard, with his brother Gordon, formed Rayner Equipment Systems and built the first RoadSaver Slurry & MicroSurfacing Machine.
Rayner Equipment Systems, Inc. is now a recognized and highly respected manufacturer in the industry with customers throughout the US and in countries around the world.
