Greeley, Colorado (November 3, 2022) – Northern Engineering Services, Inc. (Northern Engineering), provider of civil engineering and land surveying services in Northern Colorado, has named Brad Curtis as Vice President.
Brad has over 27 years of engineering experience in both the public and private sector. He has led Northern Engineering’s Municipal Services department from his director position since joining the firm in 2019. Much of Brad’s time is spent serving as Town Engineer for half a dozen Weld County communities along the Highway 85 corridor.
“We are grateful to Northern Engineering and particularly to Brad Curtis for his service to the Eaton community,” said Interim Town Manager, Wesley LaVanchy. “Brad takes pride in the delivery of his work to the team here in Eaton and we are the beneficiary of that ownership!”
Brad is a former Public Works Director and also spent time in land development, general civil engineering, and facilities design. His experience provides an enhanced ability to understand complex issues from mulitple perspectives. This is particularly helpful for public sector clients seeking to address todays’ immediate challenges, while not losing sight of long-term implications, such as operations and maintenance. Even as a private consultant, Brad always has local taxpayers in mind.
“The work of our Municipal Services team, and particularly the on-call/as-needed role of Town Engineer has a tremendous impact on the communities we serve. It certainly is a team effort, but it would not be possible without Brad Curtis,” said firm President and CEO, Nick Haws. “These efforts sometimes fall under the radar, so recognizing Brad as our newest Vice President reinforces the importance of him and his team.”
Brad is a licensed Professional Engineer and a LEED Accredited Professional with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of New Mexico. He also is a Certified Public Manager through the University of Colorado-Denver. Brad is currently part of the 5th cohort of Water Literate Leaders of Northern Colorado. He resides in Greeley with his wife, Colette, and enjoys turning Poudre River water into beer as a long-time homebrewer.
