SEH Poised for Continued Growth in Southeastern Minnesota and Statewide

January 28, 2019

SEH continues to grow its Rochester-based operations with a focus on public and private sector design and construction services.

Specifically, SEH is pleased to announce the addition of Brian Carlson as senior client service manager and the appointment of Jenna Obernolte as its Rochester office civil engineering manager. These strategic decisions reaffirm the employee-owned company’s commitment to expanding its capabilities, direction and growth throughout Southeastern Minnesota in order to better serve its client partners.

Brian’s role will revolve around delivering exceptional service primarily to SEH’s private development clients. With nearly 40 years of experience, Brian is highly skilled in client-centric building and site development, as well as a renowned project manager and facilitator with the unique ability to connect client needs with technical professionals in order to transform these needs into a successful reality.

“I'm thrilled to have joined SEH, a company unparalleled in its multidisciplined expertise and resources,” says Brian. “Each day I am helping our clients discover the full range of services that we have to offer, and connecting them with the right SEH professional and technical support they need to achieve their project goals.”

Jenna has a demonstrated ability to build and strengthen the capabilities of SEH's Rochester-based civil engineering group, which serves private sector building development and public community infrastructure needs. As civil engineering manager, Jenna will further build on her 16 years of public infrastructure expertise – and 4+ years with SEH – to inspire an unprecedented confidence in the company’s Southeastern Minnesota client base.

“My passion rests in helping others find success, colleagues and clients alike,” says Jenna. “This new role, in addition to my role as senior professional engineer, gives me the opportunity to strategically expand our civil team and ensure the delivery of successful projects on behalf of our client partners.”
