Ross Grimes promoted to project manager

ROCKFORD, Ill. (Aug. 17, 2017) – Fehr Graham, a leading Midwest engineering and environmental firm, is pleased to announce the promotion of Ross Grimes to project manager.  

Grimes joined Fehr Graham in July 2015 as a project hydrogeologist. In his new role, Grimes will manage client relationships and a team of hydrogeologists and project hydrogeologists.

“Ross has demonstrated his ability to connect with clients and develop and cultivate those relationships,” said Joel Zirkle, partner and Rockford branch manager. “He also has a knack for developing people. He has the right balance of relationship skills and technical skills.”

Prior to joining Fehr Graham, Grimes worked as a broadcaster at radio stations in Rockford, Illinois, and Wisconsin before he decided to go back to school to earn a bachelor’s degree in environmental geoscience from Northern Illinois University. The Rockford native also is certified in Geographic Information Systems. 

“I have a huge respect for how Ross came into hydrogeology,” Zirkle said. “It isn’t easy to go back to school at that point in your life. His prior experience gives him a different perspective.”
