Christopher Bostaph has joined Larson Design Group (LDG), an engineering, architecture, and surveying firm, as Vice President of Energy.
His responsibilities include strategy, business development, and high quality project delivery, overseeing all of LDG’s energy services. He will be focused on leading the growth and development of our Energy Division located in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Texas. He will also be given assignments in his role as an executive management team member on the LDG Guiding Coalition.
Chris has over 24 years of environmental consulting, engineering, and project management experience. His shale gas energy development experience was gained over the last 5 years during his project management and leadership roles at the Pittsburgh offices of AMEC Earth and Environmental, and then most recently at URS Corporation where he served as the leader of the Oil & Gas Project Management/Client Account Management Group for the Appalachian Basin. In that capacity, Chris was also tapped by URS as a subject matter expert for shale play development in both the United Kingdom and Poland.
“Chris brings with him many client relationships that complement and hold the potential of expanding the existing LDG Energy Division client base. His experience in broader energy markets, including coal-fired power, natural gas-fired power, alternative energy, and with many Texas-based energy companies will be applied to our vision for growth of the Energy Division and LDG as a whole,” said Keith Kuzio, President and CEO.
Chris has an Environmental Resource Management degree from the Pennsylvania State University. He has worked in the private consulting industry his entire career, most of that time with a Pittsburgh-based firm serving municipal, commercial, and industrial clients within the region. He then spent approximately 4 years with Deloitte Financial Advisory Services where he performed technical analyses for many projects in the energy sector, including conventional, wind, solar, biomass, and geothermal power plants.
