After 22 years of service to SDE, Andrew Karydes PLS is retiring from his duty as Principal Surveyor. His dedication and leadership has led the Surveying Department to provide services to new clients such as Dudek, AECOM, HDR, Parsons, and Kleinfelder for public agencies while maintaining relationships with our long-standing clients in the private sector. His career is highlighted by his service to the State of California as a subject matter expert reviewing Professional Land Surveying exams for 11 years, officer of the San Diego Chapter of CLSA, and successfully transitioning the company to service public agencies. He will be sorely missed in the office but we wish him all the best during his retirement days and look forward to his continued engagement with SDE as a Consultant.
We are proud to announce Kevin McHugh Jr., PLS as our Principal Land Surveyor who joined the firm in November 2020. Kevin has served as Vice President, Survey Principal, and Principal Land Surveyor at previous companies in the San Diego, Orange and Riverside regions for the past 40 years on a wide range of projects in San Diego including public works and private development. SDE is happy and excited that Kevin has joined our firm and look forward to continued success in the Survey Department. We believe his demeanor, ethics, and values align with the Company Values and look forward to a long relationship of working together.
