Dylan Cruess, COO of TFMoran, honored as one of New Hampshire’s Most Influential Business Leaders

Congratulations to TFMoran’s Chief Operating Officer, Dylan Cruess, who was selected as one of New Hampshire’s 200 Most Influential Business Leaders “New Hampshire 200” by New Hampshire Business Review. TFMoran’s principals, along with members of Dylan’s family, attended the New Hampshire 200 Reception, proudly supporting him for this great honor. The celebration was held on October 30, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester for the 200 prominent individuals featured in the NHBR inaugural publication, “New Hampshire 200”.

New Hampshire Business Review conducted a year-long research initiative led by the editors, who dove into looking for the state’s most influential business leaders in the private sector, across major industries. In choosing the individuals for New Hampshire 200, the editors of the NHBR collected suggestions and nominations from industry contacts throughout the state to determine the individuals who have had the greatest impact on New Hampshire’s economy, business climate and quality of life. The business leaders selected have a real influence within their professions, industries and communities, along with making an important and lasting imprint where they live and work.

All the selected individuals for New Hampshire 200 were asked to complete a questionnaire that would allow readers of the publication to get an inside look at the lives of the state’s most influential business leaders. When asked what was the most important business lesson learned, Dylan stated, “There are about two degrees of separation in the business community. It’s vitally important, even in the most challenging circumstances, that you treat people with respect and fairness. Building and maintaining a great reputation and fostering good relationships are crucial.” His advice to those in the same industry is to make a difference in the communities where you live and work. And, to be involved in both industry-related associations, as well as non-profit organizations as an investment that not only benefits your business, but creates a socially conscious culture in your organization.

Dylan joined TFMoran in 2001 after graduating from Bates College earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics. He then became an owner and took on the role of Chief Operating Officer when TFMoran was transferred to four senior employees in 2013. Focusing on the future, Dylan ensures that TFMoran’s projects have a positive impact on the greater community and strive to make lives better, while balancing environmental impacts.  To read more from the publication, click on this pdf link NHBR NH 200 – Dylan Cruess ~ TFMoran

We thank New Hampshire Business Review and their staff for putting on this special inaugural event which TFMoran was proud to be a sponsor of.

Congratulations to Dylan and to all of the selected New Hampshire 200 for impacting our beautiful State of New Hampshire in so many positive ways!

TFMoran Celebrates 50 Years at the Annual Harvest Lunch

TFMoran celebrated the holiday season with our Annual Harvest Lunch on November 21, 2018. The Company also celebrated our 50th year in business. TFMoran staff from the Bedford and Portsmouth offices met at the Bedford Village Inn to give thanks for another great year and enjoy some good food and beverages with coworkers. Prior to the event, company photos to commemorate the 50th year, were taken by Studio One photographer, John Gauvin.

The venue was beautiful in the Great Hall, as the Bedford Village Inn recently decorated for the holiday season. Floral centerpieces created by TFMoran’s Maryanne Murray, with help from Susan Bartley, added to the harvest-theme décor. Upon arrival, TFM staff socialized while enjoying a variety of healthy appetizers and holiday beverages from the bar. Then, all were treated to the delicious main course of salad, a lovely squash soup, steak, chicken, and roasted vegetables. Following the meal, a white raspberry-filled 50th Anniversary cake made by Frederick’s Pastries, was served to the enjoyment of all.

TFMoran president Bob Duval addressed the staff by congratulating the company and its employees on the 50 years in business and for another great year. Bob took a moment to recognize those who had been with TFMoran for more than 10 years (some over 30 years) and thanked them for their service. TFMoran’s COO, Dylan Cruess, then spoke to the staff about upcoming benefit news, such as health insurance, the 401k program and other benefits. In appreciation of everyone’s dedication to the Company, holiday bonuses were handed out to all by the five TFMoran principals.

A special thanks to the Bedford Village Inn for hosting the event and creating such a lovely atmosphere for this special occasion. It was a great send off to Thanksgiving holiday weekend, as we gave thanks for our clients, our TFM team, friends and family.

NH Business Review focuses on Engineering Firms designing for NH’s Future

New Hampshire Business Review’s June 22- July 5, 2018 issue features a special section on Engineering. The article entitled “Engineering firms design for New Hampshire’s future” is a Q & A format with a panel of four NH firms participating, including TFMoran. To view the 3 page article, click on this pdf link TFMoran featured in NHBR Engineering Article

See below for TFMoran’s president Robert Duval, PE answers to NHBR’s questions:

In what ways have TFMoran projects helped
advance the ongoing expansion of New
Hampshire’s infrastructure?

Robert Duval: “One of the most important
skills that TFMoran has developed over the
years is the successful redevelopment of
under-utilized urban and industrial land. We
have played an integral role in many of the
region’s most significant redevelopment
projects, among them the SNHU Arena and
the Fisher Cats Stadium in Manchester’s
urban core; redevelopment of the Bedford
Mall, Wayfarer Hotel, and former Macy’s
properties in Bedford; a major expansion of
the GE Aviation Plant in Hooksett, conversion
of several mill buildings in Lowell and
Lawrence to residential/commercial use,
and designing a new 1,700 car parking garage
at the south end of Manchester’s historic
Millyard, currently under construction.
These few projects alone provide hundreds
of millions of dollars of new tax base revenues
to the local community. In addition,
they are bringing vibrancy and prosperity
to our historic urban centers, and helping
restore the charm and character that makes
New England such a great place to live and
work.”

What does TFMoran do differently
that makes it stand out as an
engineering firm?
Robert Duval: “What makes TFMoran
different is our corporate culture. In addition
to being leaders and innovators in
our industry, we are also active members
of our communities. We strongly encourage
all employees to become involved
outside the workplace in professional and
community organizations. We believe an
involved person is a caring person, and a
caring person will create better designs —
designs that have a more positive impact
on their surroundings, and designs that
save our clients time and money. This
is why TFMoran is known for providing
superior value to our clients at competitive
rates.”

What has been your firm’s biggest
challenge and how did you
overcome it?
Robert Duval: “One of the biggest challenges
we face in today’s development
world is intense schedule pressure. All
across the industry, we are seeing a
demand for delivery of a project in the
shortest possible timeframe. Owners and
developers are finding it difficult to wait
for projects to wind their way through the
approval process as their users are looking
for immediate results. Meanwhile, the
regulatory process is becoming ever more
complex and pervasive. Over the past few
years, understanding the unique needs
and opportunities of each project, we have
found many innovative and creative ways
to navigate the new regulatory environment
within our clients’ aggressive schedules.
We have worked hard to develop our
reputation for meeting these challenging
deadlines, and we are proud of our impressive
track record.”
