HUNT continues to implement its leadership transition plan this week, electing Greg Barr and Darin Rathbun as Vice Presidents and Tim Steed as Corporate Secretary. On February 1, HUNT had announced that Chris Bond had become president and Dan Bower Chief Executive Officer.
In addition to this transition plan, HUNT leaders have expanded our ownership team, naming as new Principals, Ryan Garrison, Director of Information Technology, and Gary Henry, AIA, a Senior Architect and Project Manager.
Greg Barr is an Elmira resident and widely known for leading HUNT’s Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing group – one of the full-service firm’s mainstay disciplines. He joined HUNT in 1996, and advanced quickly in both technical and corporate leadership roles. He became an owner in 2006, was added to the Board of Directors in 2010, and has marketed and served as principle in charge for many of HUNT’s K-12 projects.
For his part, Darin Rathbun manages HUNT’s Towanda Office. He joined HUNT in 2000, and advanced as a lead structural designer, before adding the development of our Pennsylvania presence. Darin became a principal in 2007, was voted to the Board of Directors in 2014, and has served as Corporate Secretary since 2015. He is a Gillett, PA resident.
Tim Steed of Pine City, NY leads our municipal group, covering a variety of water and waste water markets, as well as the site development. Steed joined HUNT in 1999, and advanced both in leading the municipal work and corporate leadership, became an owner in 2008, and was added to the Board of Directors in 2014. He will be HUNT’s new Corporate Secretary.
Long-time Corning, NY resident, Ryan Garrison joined HUNT in 2010, building the firm's client-services Information Technology Department. Advancing quickly, he became Director of Technology in 2012, Associate in 2015 and Principal in 2019.
Gary Henry joined HUNT in 2011 as an architectural project manager. He earned his professional engineering license in Ohio in 1998, New York in 2001 and Pennsylvania in 2012. Considered HUNT's top building code experts, he manages several sizable projects in our K-12 and University markets. In 2015 he was named an Associate at HUNT and a Principal in 2019.
HUNT's most valuable assets are our people and we're proud to continue to promote our skilled staff into leadership positions.
