DGR Engineering Selected to 2020 PSMJ Circle of Excellence

DGR Engineering has once again been honored by PSMJ Resources as one of 65 exceptional architecture and engineering firms across the United States that have been named into the Circle of Excellence.  This is the seventh consecutive year that DGR Engineering has earned this award.

PSMJ’s Circle of Excellence is designed to highlight firms that are successfully managed and demonstrate outstanding achievements in areas such as productivity, business development, staff growth, staff turnover, and overhead management.

 PSMJ’s Circle of Excellence honorees are chosen based on 13 business metrics important to the successful operation of an engineering business. Firms considered for this designation are evaluated by comparing the firms’ metrics against industry benchmarks developed through evaluation of data provided by 323 participating firms.

“DGR Engineering is grateful to have been selected for this honor seven years in a row,” says Blair Metzger, DGR Engineering President. “While DGR Engineering is unique among recipients due to its location in a less-populated region of the country, the honor reflects the continued outstanding work being done every day by our staff.  We continue to grow our staff to reflect the needs of our clients, which develop into long-term relationships that are mutually fruitful.  We are constantly mindful that we owe our success to the many loyal clients who continuously partner with us as they develop their projects.

“Each year, the Circle of Excellence firms come from all corners of the A/E space. This diversity demonstrates that success isn’t defined by a specific firm size, location, or market niche,” says Frank A. Stasiowski, FAIA, Founder and CEO of PSMJ Resources. “The top-performing firms just think and act differently from the rest of the pack to achieve extraordinary business performance.”

“The firms recognized in the Circle of Excellence set the standard for outstanding and sustainable business results,” says Stasiowski. “Some firms have been in this prestigious group year after year!”

Since PSMJ created the award in 2006, Circle of Excellence members have consistently represented all industry facets. “The key differentiator between PSMJ’s Circle of Excellence and other industry awards is that all firms in the A/E industry are eligible. Members are not rewarded for a single outcome, but on thirteen factors that drive the overall performance of a firm,” says Dave Burstein, P.E., Senior Principal at PSMJ. “This award recognizes those firms that are not only good at their practices but also at running their practices as businesses.”
