F&R is pleased to announce that Hunter English has been promoted to CMT Department Manager for the Roanoke Branch!
Hunter English first came to F&R through a temp agency in 2013 and decided to call F&R “home” six months later. He was promoted to CMT Project Manager in 2018 and has tackled numerous high profile projects, including the I-581 Valley View Interchange, the VMI Corps Physical Training Facility, and several projects for Virginia Tech, such as the Upper Quad – Brodie Hall and the Virginia Tech-Carilion Biomedical Research Facility.
He continues to serve Virginia Tech on their Data and Decision Science Building and Corps Leadership Military Science Building. He is also currently working on the massive Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital project, which includes a 14-story expansion, Behavioral Health Center, and Pedestrian Bridge.
“Hunter is a hardworking, dedicated person with a great knowledge base and attention to detail that makes him someone who clients know will get the job done right. Hunter is someone you can count on to handle multiple high profile projects, and still jump into field work whenever needed. The Roanoke Branch is fortunate to have him on our team.”
~Jessyca Woodruff, P.E., Roanoke Branch Manager
Hunter is local to Roanoke, born and raised in the beautiful county. However, he has travelled to many interesting places around the globe including Shanghai and Reykjavik. He hopes to one day continue his explorations with a trip to Europe.
Hunter was rather destined for a career in engineering. As early as he can recall, he enjoyed building with Lego’s and was fascinated by “how things work.” He excelled in physics in high school and wanted a career that would allow him to apply all he was learning in the real world. He went on to earn a B.S. in Physics from Longwood University and B.S. in Civil Engineering from Old Dominion University.
When asked about his favorite memory at F&R, Hunter laughed, saying there were too many to name, but “maybe today, being promoted to CMT Department Manager, is my favorite memory so far.”
Indeed, Hunter. Ours too!
