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.

TFMoran Sponsors American Society of Civil Engineers’ New Hampshire Scholarship Golf Outing

On August 21st, 2020, the American Society of Civil Engineers New Hampshire Section (ASCE-NH) hosted their 2020 Annual Scholarship Golf Outing. The scholarship program was started in 2000 to encourage high school students to pursue an engineering degree (in any discipline, not just civil).  Annually, ASCE-NH awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors and civil engineering students at the University of New Hampshire, with the value of the scholarship’s dependent on the success of their fund raising.  ASCE-NH issued a record $20,000 in scholarships in 2020 and is hoping to at least match that effort in 2021.

The tournament was held at the Beaver Meadow Golf Club in Concord, NH. Due to Covid-19, special precautions were observed promoting social distancing and mask use which resulted in a safe and fun day for all those that participated.  The tournament included a continental breakfast, shotgun start, lunch, raffle, contests, and games. TFMoran Senior Project Manager and ASCE-NH Treasurer, Nick Golon played in the tournament this year and came home with a new golf club courtesy of the raffle.  The TFM Team didn’t finish first but scored a rare Eagle (two under par) on a par 4 courtesy of Kurt Nelson knocking in a 120-yard chip.  That shot along with the fantastic weather made for a great day for the Team.

TFMoran was a proud PLATINUM Sponsor of this ASCE-NH Scholarship fund raising event, along with Continental Paving and WSP.

Thank you to ASCE-NH for supporting young and aspiring engineers and putting on another great event!
