Crouch Engineering Names New Head of Operations.

In Management Restructuring, Harris Becomes Operations Manager, Founder Crouch Continues as President and CEO of Civil and Railway Engineering Company

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Prompted by the company's continued growth, Crouch Engineering has promoted Jay H. Harris, PE to Operations Manager. Harvey A. Crouch, PE remains as acting General Manager, President, and CEO of the company he founded in 1991 to service the railroad industry after beginning his career with Southern Railway and Norfolk Southern Railway.

"I am very pleased with the changes we have made," says Crouch. "All of our employees are exceptional. Having the right people in our management positions insures that our highest standards will be met as we continue to grow. "

Railroad Industry Welcomes New Operations Manager

Harris, who served as Manager of Engineering prior to his promotion, started his railway engineering career with Crouch in 1998 as a surveyor and designer and has served on the company's leadership team for several years. He specializes in civil and railway track engineering project design and management and is widely known and respected throughout the industry.

Familiar Faces Take Over Two Other Key Positions

Kevin N. Lindsey, PE who replaces Harris as Manager of Engineering, will take charge of the firm's engineering and project management staff. Lindsey, whose Crouch history dates back to 1997 when he began as a co-op engineer, moves up from his previous position of Manager of Structural and Bridge Engineering. As a specialist in railway bridge engineering, he has worked over the past fourteen years on hundreds of projects for more than one hundred Class I, short lines, and railroad customers across the country. He leads Crouch's SmartLine[TM] FRA Compliance Program for the new FRA bridge safety standards.

Derek B. Godwin, PE takes over as the new Manager of Structures. Godwin began his career as a steel detailer in his father's family business and worked as a co-op engineer early on with Crouch. Godwin has contributed his expertise in bridge and structural engineering to Crouch for the past seven years, specializing in the modelling and design of steel and concrete structures. Godwin was instrumental in the development of Crouch Engineering's SmartLine[TM] FRA Compliance Program.

The founder takes pride in his company's reputation for excellence. Crouch comments, "The restructuring has increased our overall efficiency, allowing us to focus on our top priority - providing safe and creative solutions to our railroad industry clients while improving their bottom line."
