Beaudin Ganze Consulting Engineers (BGCE) has finalized its ownership transition, with Dan Koelliker, P.E., in place as president. He is joined by Debbie Eachus, finance manager; Eric Rubottom, P.E., hospitality and technology services leader; Morgan Royce, P.E., New Mexico business unit leader; and Wes Ploof, P.E., metro Denver business unit leader. Co-founder Denis Beaudin, former president and majority owner of the firm, completed the transition to members of the senior leadership team, all of whom are previous shareholders of the firm and together have an average tenure of more than 15 years with BGCE.
“With BGCE in excellent shape and new opportunities emerging for myself, now is the time to complete our long-awaited, much anticipated succession plan,” says Beaudin. “Each of the owners has held key leadership positions, and has the skills, energy and outlook necessary to steer the course of BGCE into its next chapter of continued success.”
Beaudin’s plans for the future include developing NRG Design Build, a separate entity from BGCE with several shareholders in common. Beaudin completed purchase of NRG on March 23 . “Denis is an entrepreneur,” says Koelliker. “After nearly a quarter of a century at the helm of BGCE, he has the opportunity once again to focus his energies on NRG and see it grow. We are all excited about the opportunities ahead.”
Koelliker noted that most clients of BGCE will likely not see much change in daily contacts and ongoing project work. “The senior leadership team and project staff have been in place for some time,” he remarks.
BGCE is involved in mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP), lighting and technology design as well as commissioning, energy modeling and management, and LEED consulting. The firm specializes in high-end homes, hospitality, healthcare, education, civic, cultural, commercial and mixed-use sectors and has offices in Vail, Denver, and Fort Collins, CO; Jackson, WY; and Albuquerque, NM.
