New Leadership

​All of us at Engineering Surveys & Services (ES&S), congratulate Dave Bennett on his well earned retirement!

​Dave joined Columbia-based ES&S after earning his bachelor of science in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri in 1980.  He, along with Larry Hendren, PE, RG and Tim Reed, PLS, have formed the leadership core at ES&S since the mid 1980's, after being mentored in a multi-year transition by ES&S founder, Jim Reed, PE, RLS.  Larry retired in 2015, while Tim continues in his role managing the firm’s land surveying practice and mentoring the next generation of ES&S leadership.  Click here to learn more about Dave's Career at ES&S.

Succeeding Dave Bennett as President of ES&S will be Ross Kasmann.  Ross joined ES&S in 2005 after receiving a bachelor of science in Civil Engineering from the Missouri University of Science & Technology. After serving in the Columbia Office for several years, Kasmann was tasked with management of the firm’s Jefferson City Office in 2011, over which time it experienced continued growth in service offerings and profitability.  Originally from Jefferson City, Ross and his wife (Michelle) now live in Columbia with their two children.  He is a licensed professional engineer in Missouri and a Certified Floodplain Manager.  After many years involvement at the state level, Ross was recently named as National Vice-Chair of NSPE’s Professional Engineers in Private Practice industry interest group.  He moved back to the Columbia Office in early 2017 in preparation for his new role.

"We thank Dave for his years of service and leadership and wish him the best in retirement and adventures yet to come. I and the rest of the leadership team and staff at ES&S remain committed to delivering the same quality and responsive service that our clients have grown to trust."
