He will work closely with KCI’s SUE, utility coordination, and survey and mapping teams to efficiently expand the firm’s presence in the south.

His expertise, coupled with the unique insight he brings from his previous tenure with KCI, is a tremendous asset to the team. I look forward to once again welcoming him to KCI as we continue operations and pursue new opportunities.”
