RLG Consulting Engineers, a Dallas-based civil, structural, survey and forensics engineering firm, announced the promotion of Stuart A. Markussen to chief operating officer.

As COO, Markussen will be responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations in RLG’s four departments: civil, structural, survey, and forensics for the company’s three offices located in Dallas, Fort Worth, Texas, and Peoria, Ill. Additionally, he will lead internal operations to support RLG’s growth plans.

“Stuart has played a vital role in the growth of RLG Consulting Engineers,” says David Goodson, PE, RLG president and CEO. “As RLG looks ahead to the future and positions itself for extensive growth, Stuart’s leadership will be a key element to our continued success.”   

Markussen joined RLG in 1996 as the manager of the Civil Engineering and Surveying Departments, and after two years with RLG, he advanced to the firm’s ownership group as a principal shareholder. Over his 30-year career, he has gained valuable knowledge for working on “fast-track” design and build projects. Markussen has developed a reputation for collaborative leadership by fostering clear communication between the project owner and contractor in order to create constructible designs.

Markussen holds a Master of Science, Management, and Administration Science from the University of Texas at Dallas and a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Texas Tech University. He holds certifications as a Professional Engineer (PE) in Texas, Registered Professional Land Surveyor (RPLS) in Texas, and is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Accredited Professional (LEED AP).
