James Harshman

Founder, President

More than 20 years ago I founded Diamond Edge with the hopes of bringing quality integrity services to vendors and operators across the United States. Prior to beginning Diamond Edge, I worked at TD Williamson as an International Sales Manager. I have done work with a wide variety of customers and clients from across the world specializing in ILI technology.

Before I came to the pipeline industry, I grew up in Nebraska working on a farm.I played football for the University of Wyoming and have an MBA from Oklahoma City University.

While I’m not working, James enjoys being on horseback, working on a tractor, spending time with his grand-kids, playing poker with his friends or planning his next adventure with his wife.
