Congratulations to TFMoran’s Chief Operating Officer, Dylan Cruess on his appearance in the 2018 “40 Under Forty” Young Professionals segment in the New Hampshire Union Leader. The acknowledgement is an annual segment in the New Hampshire Union Leader that praises young, working professionals for having made professional and personal contributions to make New Hampshire a better place to live and work.

By featuring these 40 young professionals from New Hampshire, potential young employees would be encouraged to apply for jobs in New Hampshire and stay in the area. The feature entails a question-answer segment with the recipient, giving advice and insight on their designated field.

Dylan R. Cruess • 38 • Bedford
Principal and Chief Operating Officer, TFMoran, Inc.

Why did you choose your profession?
The short answer is that engineering was my family business. I have
been involved with TFMoran in various capacities since I was 10. At
first I didn’t think I was going to join the firm; I interviewed at several
places in Boston and New York, but after weighing all the different
factors, being close to my family and the quality of life in New Hampshire
drew me back.

What motivates you to give back to your community?
I believe everyone benefits from a strong community and I find
being involved very rewarding on a personal level. I am fortunate that
my company believes in being active in the community and it encourages
everyone at the company to get involved personally as well. As
an engineering firm, we focus a lot on STEM initiatives and we support
the personal causes of our employees and clients.

What would you like to be doing when you’re 40?
Forty is only a couple of years away for me, so I would like to be
doing exactly what I am doing now. I work with amazing people and
we get to help to shape our communities through new development
every day.

Volunteer activities: Board of Directors, Manchester Chamber of
Commerce; Treasurer, Manchester Masonic Foundation.

TFMoran’s Portsmouth Office Celebrates the Season by donating to Food Pantry and Solving 2 Mysteries

TFMoran’s Portsmouth office, the MSC Division, celebrated the holiday season on a snowy Friday, just before Christmas. In lieu of their traditional office party with a Secret Santa gift swap and potluck lunch, they decided to do something a little different this year.  In place of the gift swap, the Portsmouth group raised $400 to donate to the local Food Pantry, making the holiday season a bit nicer for those less fortunate. And, instead of the potluck lunch, all ventured over to Mojo’s BBQ & Grill where they enjoyed a change of scenery, along with delicious tavern fare. followed by an adventure at the Portsmouth Escape Room.

Their afternoon adventure consisted of splitting into two groups; one went into the Westower Study and the other went to The Roswell Incident. Each group was given one hour to solve their mystery and escape from their room. Everyone had a great time finding clues and solving the puzzles required to escape, just in time to start the holiday weekend.

Thanks to the TFMoran principals for hosting the celebration, an awesome time was had by all!


TFMoran Celebrates the Christmas Season with Family

On Friday, December 15th, TFMoran’s staff and family celebrated the Christmas season together at the Bedford office. Thanks to Galen, Jenn and Kelsie, the reception area was as festive as could be – complete with a beautifully decorated 9 foot Douglas Fir Christmas tree, and lighted greens strung along the railings of the open stairway. Tidewater Catering Group, of Manchester, put on a festive display of appetizers, fruits, cheeses, vegetables and Christmas cookies that all enjoyed.


Though this year’s theme didn’t mention unique Christmas sweaters, Nick and Lee went along with the Christmas string of lights theme on their matching sweaters – and they even lit up! That’s the spirit we like – “Get Your Festive On” was indeed mentioned on the invitation, after all.



One week into his retirement, after 40 years with TFMoran, Joe Sears blessed us with his presence. He and his wife Suzanne enjoyed the annual TFM Christmas Party, as Joe chatted with former co-workers about his future plans in retirement life.



And, of course, “Santa’s Workshop” was a big hit with the little ones. Christmas craft projects, like foam gingerbread people were decorated with stickers, markers and pom poms for ornaments to hang on the tree. Clear glass ornaments were stuffed with green pom poms to make a grinch face, and white cotton for snowmen -all adorned with creations of hats for custom-made ornaments. Thank you to Jen Porter’s daughter Jocelyn, who was Santa’s helper and organized the craft workshop for the kids.

A big Thank You to the TFMoran principals for hosting a fun and festive family event!

We wish all a Very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
