TFMoran Announces the Promotion of Four Senior Employees to Principals

A Message from TFMoran’s President, Robert Duval:

We are pleased to welcome these exceptional individuals into our ownership team. They embody the core values of TFMoran: engineering excellence and superior client service. Effective engineering companies require leaders who are innovators and problem-solvers. These new Principals have all demonstrated such leadership roles within our industry and within our community.

TFMoran is very proud to announce the promotion of several key employees to Principals of the firm – Nick Golon and Chris Rice in our civil engineering group, and Tom Lamb and Kyle Roy in our structural group. These individuals represent our commitment to the future. TFMoran is now in its 53rd year of operations. Although in itself a remarkable achievement, we know that our future success depends on identifying and training new generations of leadership today.

Business experts agree that succession planning is one of the hallmarks of a sound business strategy. We agree, and we believe that good succession planning means bringing new leaders into the leadership team early, to ensure a seamless transition as TFMoran continues to grow and prosper in the decades to come.

And as we prepare for the future, we want to thank each and every one of our clients for the continued faith you place in TFMoran, which has made us a mainstay of New Hampshire’s design and construction industry for over 50 years. I am very proud of TFM’s accomplishments. We take on challenging projects with aggressive schedules. We keep our focus on providing the most efficient service and the best possible value for our clients.

We take pride in what we do, and we are especially proud to be joined by this strong young leadership team of professionals who choose to live, raise their families, and put their talents to work inside the great state of New Hampshire.

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!
