We commemorated Bruce Jennings’ 40th anniversary with DGR Engineering today. Bruce began his career in 1979 in the water department, and moved up the ranks from project manager to department head, and then served as president from 2003-2010. He continues in a part-time capacity today. Thank you for your dedication, Bruce!
DGR Engineering has once again been honored by PSMJ Resources as one of seventy-two exceptional architecture and engineering firms named into the Circle of Excellence. This is the sixth 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 participating firms.
“DGR Engineering has been selected for this honor six years in a row, illustrating a consistent pattern of operation during that time” says Blair Metzger, DGR Engineering President. “Receiving this honor is a result of being entrusted by our many loyal clients to provide solutions to their needs, along with the efforts of dedicated staff members who have made DGR Engineering the employer of choice in this region. Ultimately, our success relies on our ability to recruit and retain the types of talented employees that we’ve been able to assemble, who then are able to apply those talents on behalf of our valued clients.”
“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.”
For more than 40 years, PSMJ Resources, Inc. has been recognized as the leading publishing, executive education, and advisory group devoted completely to improving the business performance of A/E/C organizations worldwide. PSMJ’s sought-after expertise covers a range of critical business areas such as project management, financial management, human resources, business development, transition planning, and mergers and acquisitions.
