O’Dell Named Best Places to Work Central Valley 2022 and Announces Executive Team Progression

By admin

For the fourth year, O’Dell Engineering has been named a “Best Places to Work: Central Valley”! The program, presented by Best Companies Group, recognizes organizations with strong, positive workplace environments. We are grateful to be counted as one of these workplaces in 2018, 2019, 2020, and now 2022! Unfortunately, the program did not take place in 2021 so we could not participate.

Being a great place to work means that O’Dell Engineering attracts dedicated civil engineering, land surveying, and landscape architecture professionals that are passionate about their work. Having top talent is essential to delivering quality work for all of our clients and the communities we serve. Our team loves what they do and it shows. They work together to improve communities through each and every project we support.

“I enjoy coming to work each day at O’Dell Engineering primarily due to the positive atmosphere and great people.  The company has created a culture which is based in the success of both our projects and clients, as well as the employees. You can tell that the people care about each other, and this seems to start at the top.  The company encourages the employees to grow and provides the means for them to do so.”

– Mike Persak, PE, Senior Civil Engineer

“I love working at O’Dell because I get to design projects that make a difference in my community. When I see a park I helped to design or a roadway landscape that conserves water while adding beauty, it brings me joy. My team is passionate about the designs we create and know our projects have the potential to make a positive difference, and that is worth coming to work for.”

– Katherine Lewis, CPSI, Assistant Project Manager, Landscape Architecture Department

A key element of being a best place to work is continued progression and growth throughout the firm, including the executive team. O’Dell is committed to supporting Northern California communities for many years to come and has elected Dylan Crawford, PLS, as the firm’s newest President. Mr. Crawford will continue the legacy that Randall O’Dell built of fostering professional growth in dedicated team members and supporting our clients with the design services that move communities forward.

The executive team also includes Chad Kennedy, PLA, Principal, John Zhang, PE, Principal, and Randy O’Dell, PE, Principal who will continue to support Dylan and the firm in its endeavor to help our clients realize their goals. We are excited for continued growth within the O’Dell Engineering team and we owe it all to the amazing people who chose to contribute to our team every day.
