Name Change Reflects Firm’s Growth, Six Vice Presidents Made Shareholders

D&B Engineers and Architects has changed its corporate structure and also announced the appointment of six new shareholders.

D&B President Steven A. Fangmann, speaking on behalf of the D&B Board of Directors, stated “We elected to change the firm’s corporate structure from a P.C. (Professional Corporation) to a D.P.C. (Design Professional Corporation) in response to our continuing strong growth and business evolution. The change represents a vision of the future and creates both a direction and a pathway to achieve the vision. While there is a commonality of sustainable engineering and environmental solutions in all our project areas, this move creates a solid foundation for success by advancing new market sectors and practice areas.

I also firmly believe that the promotion of six talented individuals to shareholder and leadership positions will propel our firm for years to come. This is fully consistent with our corporate commitment to growth from within which has guided the D&B organization over the last half century.”

The new shareholders of D&B Engineers and Architects, D.P.C. are:

  • Matthew R. DeVinney, P.E. Vice President, Environmental Investigation & Remediation (Huntington, NY)
  • Frank DeVita Vice President, Environmental Investigation & Remediation  (Floral Park, NY)
  • Christopher Koegel, P.E. Vice President, Construction Management (Wantagh, NY)
  • Carolyn A. Lowe, P.E. Vice President, Wastewater/Water Supply (Brewster, NY)
  • Olga J. Mubarak Vice President, Wastewater (Northport, NY)
  • Philip R. Sachs, P.E. Vice President, Water Supply  (Bethpage, NY)

President Fangmann added, “D&B’s practice concentrations are rooted in dynamic life cycle business segments that range from water and wastewater to civil engineering to environmental investigation and remediation. We honor our firm’s legacy by deploying a process of continual improvement as a defining part of our culture, as well as by enabling upward movement for talented employees within our corporate structure.”
