A special thank you to our intern, Bryce, for spending the summer with us and contributing fresh ideas to the R&R team!

Before heading back to Washington State University, Bryce shared with us how a collaborative office environment impacted his internship.

An open office layout and the ability to work with all levels of the team both in the office and out in the field provided valuable opportunities for Bryce to apply what he's been learning in his classes.

New Leadership, New Office, New Culture

Company changes embrace history, growth, & ramped-up focus on customer care and staff

We are proud to announce that Tony Smith, PLS, is R&R’s new President and Douglas Dunkin, PE, will continue to be the company’s CEO. These leadership changes are effective immediately.

As R&R's President, Smith will be guiding operations and day-to-day activities. Smith has been with R&R since 2012. By 2016, he was running the entire Survey Department and had grown the field crew presence to 10 trucks and more than 25 team members, doubling the size of both. Now elevated to President, Smith continues to focus on internal culture and organic career growth for the company.

“Our internal culture has been redeveloped to devote particular focus to our clients and to our employees," says Smith. "We are dedicated to the highest caliber customer service possible and to our staff and their career development. These changes reflect years of preparation and strategy.”

Dunkin began his R&R career in 1994. He became part owner in 1996 and sole owner in 2003. As CEO, he will continue to develop client relations and evaluate strategic opportunities for the firm's future. 

"We have carefully modulated our growth and our vision," says Dunkin. "Today our company expectations and goals are broader and more wide-ranging than ever before."

In addition to the new leadership shift, the company will move from its West Colfax facilities, where R&R has operated since 2007, into newly built headquarters located at 1635 W. 13th Avenue in Denver in early summer 2019. The move provides a 21st-century designed workspace that prioritizes employee needs and functional design for client support.

"R&R has devoted hundreds of hours into improving how we conduct our projects and I'm proud to serve in this new capacity," says Smith. "It is an exciting time to work within the company and the industry. I look forward to the organization's continued growth."

Check out the construction progress at our new office location. Stay tuned for more updates!
