Nebraska-based engineering and design firm Olsson has promoted Brad Hammond to lead the company’s Fayetteville office. Hammond previously led the company’s water/wastewater team based in Fayetteville.

Hammond has more than 25 years of experience and joined Olsson when the firm acquired McGoodwin Williams & Yates in 2018.

“Brad has been a major factor in the operation, growth and development of a future vision for this office,” said Ron Mersch, vice president of Olsson. “He shows the qualities and leadership required to be successful in our industry. Brad is an ideal person to lead our office as we continue to grow our presence in Arkansas.”

Olsson’s Fayetteville office has 35 employees.

With Hammond moving to office leader, Chris Hall has been promoted to team leader for the Fayetteville/Springfield (Mo.) water/wastewater team, which includes 18 employees.
