Larry Fairchild, P.E. and William S. Lucarelli, P.L.S.
CHA has recently been reorganizing its senior level management and certain divisional operations since Mr. Kinley became the firm's CEO on January 1st of this year. “To coordinate our corporate and business level strategies, we recognized that organizational changes needed to take place at the senior management level in order to achieve our overall goals. One of these changes is a move to a more consolidated and traditional corporate structure,” said Kinley. As a result of this new management philosophy, Fairchild and Lucarelli have been promoted to top leadership roles at CHA.
“Our goal is to continue growing CHA by expanding geographically, pursuing niche engineering markets, and obtaining large, multi-disciplined industrial and public infrastructure projects,” Kinley continued. “The creation of these two positions will allow us to consolidate responsibility and accountability, thereby streamlining the decision-making processes involved in managing a growing firm.”
Mr. Fairchild, a member of CHA's Executive Committee, has over twenty-nine years of experience in the engineering industry, including sixteen with CHA. In his new role, he will be directing all of the firm's project management activities and will be responsible for all the technical standards and operational procedures to ensure the technical superiority and quality of services delivered to the firm's clients. Mr. Fairchild has directed numerous aviation and transportation projects throughout the northeast, including over fifty at the Albany International Airport. He played a key project management role in the Airport's recently completed runway and taxiway extension project. Mr. Fairchild is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York.
Mr. Lucarelli has been with CHA for twenty-nine years and is also a member of the firm's Executive Committee. For the past nine years, he has been serving as the Director of Office Development, primarily overseeing the development and geographic expansion of CHA. During his tenure as Director, the firm has grown from five offices to the current level of nineteen. He played a key role in CHA's successful expansion into the Southeastern United States. Prior to that position, Mr. Lucarelli was the Manager of the Survey Department. His new role will be expanded to include the overseeing of all of CHA's office operations, as well as all human resources and information technology operations. He is a graduate of Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, New York.
