He served as President and Chief Executive Officer from 2008 through 2022, during which time he led the firm through the great recession and the COVID-19 pandemic, including the transition to remote and hybrid work. Under his leadership, the firm expanded to five new states. In 2018, he was named Engineer of the Year by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Washington.
He succeeds Parametrix founder, Waite Dalrymple, as Chair of the Board. Dalrymple has served as Chair of the Board for nearly 30 years. He will continue to serve on the Board ensuring a legacy and focus on employee-ownership.
