East Coast Gate Operators

Roxanne and Michael Ladd purchased East Coast Gate Operators to fulfill a dream to own and operate a family business that supports reputable and hard-working customers. With 20+ years of corporate experience in technology, Roxanne passionately rolls up her sleeves every day to serve the installers that depend on East Coast Gate Operators.  

With his experience in sales, marketing and business ownership, Mike supports Roxanne in charting the course.  The pair is guided each day by a simple question, “how can we make the job and experience of our valued customers better and easier.”  Nothing is more important to Roxanne and Mike than spending time with our customers to understand how to achieve this goal. We welcome your feedback.  Contact us directly and let us buy you lunch or bring coffee and donuts to your team in the field!


Service From an Experienced Team

Mark Morton
Sales Representative and Lead Technician

With 13 years of experience as a gate installer, Mark was the founder, owner and primary installer with 3M Gates. Mark is a longstanding customer of East Coast and intimately understands the questions and concerns of a gate installer.

He has a wife and three beautiful daughters he credits with keeping him focused and on his toes! Don’t challenge Mark on movie or music trivia – because he’ll have you beat!


Ron Buckingham
Sales Representative and Technician

Ron joined the team after 4 years with Maybury Fence, Inc. as an installer and service technician and a combined 12 years in the gate industry. Ron is a certified automated gate operator installer, and we’re thrilled to have him here at East Coast!

When he’s not assisting customers, he can be found at the nearest drum set, on-set with his band or playing with his adorable pomeranians.


Labrador Observer and Chief Welcome Officer

Did we rescue Gus or did Gus rescue us?  Amazingly, Gus was found dodging traffic on I-77 about 10 years ago and hasn’t left our side since.  Gus is 11 or 12 or 13. Who knows. Gus will greet you as you walk into the East Coast office… unless he’s taking a nap in the warm sun or gone on a self-guided walk.  Gus does in fact answer emails and can be reached at lazyyellowdog@ecgateops.com.
