Class of 2018: 40 under Forty honorees make NH a better place to live and work

Taking their places in the ranks of honorees considered among the state’s top political and community leaders, members of the 2018 class of the New Hampshire Union Leader 40 Under Forty were honored during a ceremony Wednesday night at the Grappone Conference Center.

The program, now in its 17th year, honors New Hampshire residents who have achieved professional and volunteer accomplishments in the state. Past honorees include former U.S. Sen. John E. Sununu, former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher and Cy Young Award winner Chris Carpenter and Olympic gold medalist skier Bode Miller.

“I’m honored to be recognized for doing something I enjoy doing, and would be happy to do regardless of my vocation,” said Lauren Collins-Cline, director of communications and public relations at Catholic Medical Center in Manchester. “I think the quality of this year’s class is indicative of the under 40 crowd in New Hampshire. We hear a lot about the graying of the state, and an event like this spotlights what the younger generation is accomplishing.”

“Going through the list of honorees, it is an incredibly impressive list,” said Gov. Chris Sununu. “The sky is the limit in New Hampshire. You have the ability to do anything here and it’s our responsibility as government officials to make sure the doors are open to you. This state is about opportunity. You are here because you made the best of it.”

The 28 women and 12 men chosen for the 2018 Class of 40 Under Forty have made professional and personal contributions to make New Hampshire a better place to live and work. This year’s group includes four people in their 20s; 16 between 30 and 35; and 20 between 36 and 39 — including nine 39-year olds.

The most popular profession in this year’s class is attorney, the listed occupation for four of the honorees. They represent a very diverse workforce — real estate, health care, arts and entertainment, state politics, retail, accounting, insurance, finance, education and coaching, engineering, advocacy, promoting New Hampshire.

“You’ve done a lot to get here,” said New Hampshire Union Leader Executive Editor Trent Spiner. “Every year we are just amazed at your stories, and the things you have done and achieved. I am even more amazed at what you will go on to do.”

“It’s a great class, and I’m honored to be a part of it,” said Dylan Cruess, principal and chief operating officer of TFMoran Inc. “You see the people who have been recognized before you, and it’s an honor to be a part of that group.”

“I’m honored to be chosen, and to be a good role model for my kids,” said Jessica Bond, program director for Ascentria Care Alliance Therapeutic Family Connections Program. “I’m happy for the opportunity to help put a spotlight on the need for foster care in New Hampshire.”

“It’s a great class,” said Will Craig, community relations and economic development specialist with Eversource. “It’s a nice opportunity to recognize a great group of people for the good work they do around the state.”

Nominations for this year’s honorees were gathered in the fall. Nominees had to be younger than 40 as of Feb. 1, have lived in the state for at least three years, and have made professional and personal contributions to making New Hampshire a better place.

Citizens Bank sponsored the 2018 40 Under Forty Awards.

High-Profile features an award-winning TFMoran structural design project in March issue.

TFMoran Structural Engineers are honored to be on the Five College Library Annex Team who received a bronze award in the building construction category by the Design Build Institute of America.  You can read all about it in the March issue of High-Profile, New England Facilities Development News in the Institutions & Schools focus section. Or just click on this pdf link High-Profile – Five College Library March 2018 pg 29 to view the published story, or read below:

DBIA NE Honors Five College Library Annex Team With Bronze Award

Hatfield, MA – At its recent annual meeting and design-build awards event, held in Framingham, the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) New England Region, presented the Five College Library Annex project team with a Bronze Award in the Building Construction category.

The winning collaboration included Five Colleges, Inc. (FCI), CSL Consulting, Cutler Associates, Cutler Design, RDK Engineers, TFMoran, and Berkshire Design.

Prior to construction, Cutler, an East Coast design-build and construction management firm, worked with FCI and CSL on site selection. The design-build team then spent 12 months building the new 35,000sf climate-controlled library storage facility in Hatfield. The design provides for 9,000sf of receiving, materials processing, meeting, and office space, with the remaining 26,000sf storage space, outfitted with 24-foot high shelving units that have a capacity to house 2.5 million volumes.

The new state-of-the-art facility serves students and faculty members from Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith colleges and the University of Massachusetts Amherst — collectively known as the Five College Consortium.

The success of the project, having maximized the value and efficiencies of taking a design-build approach, is proven by the numbers. “Given the complexities of the site prep work and sophisticated building systems necessary for achieving the strict control of temperature and humidity, we are thrilled that the facility was completed on schedule and well under budget,” said Neal Abraham, executive director of Five Colleges, Inc.

2017 Business Excellence Winner:
Dylan Cruess of TFMoran
Dylan Cruess, chief operating officer of TFMoran in Bedford, is the 2017 Business Excellence winner in the real estate and construction category for a small organization
Nominated by: Kimberley Griswold of Brainium

Dylan may have learned the ropes from his engineer father, but it is he and the new leadership team at TFMoran that have steered the company through a period of unprecedented growth. Since ownership of the company was transferred in 2013 to four senior employees, including Dylan, TFMoran has more than doubled its annual revenue, with continued double-digit growth. Because of Dylan’s background and upbringing, he grasps engineering, project management and surveying more than a typical operations person would. And that has enabled him to continue the original vision of TFMoran while strategically growing the company to new levels.

Having grown up among the TFMoran team, Dylan is well aware that it is the teamwork of the employees that is essential to the company’s success. That’s why Dylan has worked with the leadership team to increase the company match for employees’ 401K plans. And TFMoran’s positive culture is evidenced by its low turnover rate. Employees enjoy working at TFMoran because they are appreciated and encouraged to continue their education to become the best they can be. And the family-friendly atmosphere of the company allows not only for the flexibility to work from home when necessary but also the encouragement to give back to the community, as Dylan does.

Dylan’s leadership, work ethic, passion for community involvement and vision for TFMoran are why he is being honored with this award.
