TFMoran Gathers for Our Annual Holiday Harvest Lunch

TFMoran celebrated the holiday season last Wednesday with the annual “Harvest Lunch” held at the Bedford Village Inn. Both offices were brought together in the Great Hall for socializing, appetizers, and beverages before the buffet-style lunch was served. The hall was decorated with twinkling holiday lights and festive decorations that were sure to get everyone in the holiday spirit! TFM employees were encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to the event. Collection boxes will also be available in both offices for the week following, as we put together our donation to the NH Food Bank!

After lunch, TFMoran President Robert Duval wished everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and spoke about all the wonderful things to be thankful for over the past year. Bob took a moment to congratulate TFMoran for our achievements, including the 2021 NH Business Review “Best of Business” Award for the ninth consecutive year – and voting is now open for the 2022 BOB’s! He then thanked the team for our combined efforts and hard work over the past year to overcome any challenges caused by the pandemic. TFMoran continues to strive for the best and looks forward to another successful year.

Dylan Cruess, COO also addressed the team, speaking about health insurance, the 401k program, and other benefits.  He then congratulated individuals celebrating milestones with the company and recognized new employees that have joined within the past year. Dylan also announced the addition of new workspaces being added to both the Bedford and Portsmouth offices.

The TFMoran principals were happy to give out bonuses to the team in appreciation of everyone’s hard work and dedication to the Company.

A special thank you to the TFMoran principals for hosting this very special occasion. It was a great send-off to the Thanksgiving holiday as everyone headed home afterward to spend time with their families. Thank you to The Bedford Village Inn for the amazing food and lovely venue!

Dylan Cruess, COO named on New Hampshire 200 List for Second Time

New Hampshire 200 TFMoran’s Chief Operating Officer, Dylan Cruess was recently selected as one of New Hampshire’s 200 most influential business leaders by NH Business Review. This is Cruess’ second time on the “New Hampshire 200” list, the first was in 2019, the award’s inaugural year.

This designation is a result of a year-long initiative conducted by NH Business Review editors who collected suggestions and nominations from their industry contacts throughout the state to determine the 200 individuals who have made the greatest impact on the Granite State’s economy, business climate and the state as a whole.

All the selected individuals were asked to complete a questionnaire for the New Hampshire 200 second edition publication to be published this fall. When asked what is most exciting about the company’s future, Cruess answered, “Over the past year we adopted an ownership transition plan, added four senior engineers as Principals to our leadership team. The ability for TFMoran to thrive and adapt during this challenging time has confirmed my belief and trust in our extraordinary team.”

Mr. Cruess joined TFMoran, Inc. in 2001 after graduating from Bates College earning a bachelor’s degree in Economics. In 2013 he became an owner and Chief Operating Officer of TFMoran when the company was transferred to four senior employees. Mr. Cruess is very involved in the local community and serves on the board of directors for numerous organizations.

The New Hampshire 200 Reception will be held on December 9, 2021 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester Downtown to recognize the prominent business leaders.

TFM Celebrates Halloween with a TGIF Party!

TFM celebrated the end of the week with some Halloween festivities last Friday! Employees enjoyed fall favorites from the Puritan Back Room including chicken tenders and mac & cheese! For those with a sweet tooth, Maryanne Murray brought in some festive desserts: witch’s finger cookies and mummy apple pies!

The winners of the Reese’s and candy corn jars were announced, which had been on display all week for employees to guess. Mike Krzeminski had the closest guess on the Reese’s, while Steve Bibeau was closest on the candy corn. Members from the Civil, Structural, and Landscape Architecture teams faced off to claim victory in the “Pumpkin Strongman” competition, which Structural Engineer Ezequiel Galvan won. Others tested their speed in mummy wrapping a colleague. Marty Gavin and Sharon Monahan won the prize with the quickest wrap, but Julia Chartier and Diane Martineau definitely earned style points! A few daring souls dressed in costume hoping to receive votes from their peers for the grand prize: a $50 gift card to Market Basket! Jeff Tate pulled out all the stops, sporting an inflatable piggyback on the witch costume, which was voted winner, although honorable mentions included Alex Croteau’s Indiana Jones and Chris Chiaramonte’s koala!

The TFM Portsmouth division also celebrated the spooky holiday with Halloween-themed festivities! Employees were invited to dress in costume and eat chilling snacks from Buffalo Wild Wings. Names were drawn of who would be mummified with toilet paper, and all were encouraged to participate in a pumpkin carving contest!
