Leadership roles in the civil engineering, surveying, community development, planning and landscape architecture and sales practices in Wisconsin and Indiana are set to provide SEH clients with a greater level of service and support.
By appointing leaders to these practice areas, not only will SEH be better positioned to serve clients SEH will also be better positioned to hire more talent in these specialties.
"I'm excited for these individuals to take on growing and leading our civil engineering, surveying, community development, planning and landscape architecture and sales practices in Wisconsin and Indiana. Each of them are well respected in their fields and offer a wealth of experience that will position our clients for success now and into the future." Mark Broses, PE, SEH Vice President and Regional Leader.
Meet the practice leaders.
Keith Kindred has been with SEH for 35 years, and serves clients from our Delafield, Wisconsin office.
Keith has worked with multiple cities, businesses, and residents over the course of his career. He has played a lead role among the surveying team in the area.
Keith started his surveying job with SEH as a “rodman,” making $5.50/hour on a field crew. The rodman’s job entails transporting and setting up the survey equipment used by the crew. Over the years, he’s seen some amazing changes in the industry – from brushing lines of sight and drafting tables to using GPS and drafting in Civil 3D.
“I am excited for the future of surveying as we’re now implementing drones and laser scanning to pick up field data,” Keith says. “These new technologies not only allow us to be more efficient in collecting data, these processes are much safer for the field crew.”
Keith grew up in Wisconsin where his family ran a sporting goods store in Rice Lake. The family moved to Waukesha County when he was in elementary school, and have lived there ever since. Keith and his wife of nearly 40 years live only a couple of miles from the Delafield office.
He enjoys spending weekends fishing and hunting with his family. He and his wife have four grandchildren – the oldest routinely joins him in the hunting blind.
Gary Randle leads the planning and landscape architecture practice.
He is in our Milwaukee, Wisconsin office and has been focusing on developing our Company’s expertise and a portfolio of work in urban areas. He will expand his focus to include the entire region. Gary has been with SEH for one year, and has 26 years of experience in planning and development.
“In all of the years being a part of this industry and leading teams, leading the planning and architecture practice in Wisconsin and Indiana might be the most exciting and challenging role I have taken on yet,” Gary says.
Gary hopes to transform traditional thinking–shifting away from what he calls cookie-cutter, solution-based engineering to out-of-the-box entrepreneurial solutions.
He says the leadership skills he acquired in the military coupled with his passion for helping teams succeed will become the building blocks for a dynamic team that will help clients focus on the root of their problems and provide them with impactful solutions.
Gary was born in Bloomington, Indiana, before moving to Bradenton, Florida where he grew up. He says Bradenton was a great place to grow up and see what an economically vibrant City looked like through his impressionable years. When he was older, Gary joined the Military where he traveled the world, getting exposed to different cultures, esthetics and a diversity of people. Gary says it was his Military service that ignited his passion for engineering, landscape architecture and vertical architecture. Once he transitioned back to civilian life, Gary began working for a civil engineering firm and has been doing it ever since.
On a personal note, Gary has been married to his wife for 26 years, has four children and four grandchildren with whom he cherishes spending time with. He says his personal passion is helping and witnessing his family grow and succeed in life.
“My work passion is for success of the Company I work for, the people on the teams I lead and the clients I am fortunate enough to work for daily,” he says.
