Dunaway has announced the hiring of Chris Vadala as its Corporate Development Executive, reaffirming its commitment to growing regionally in Texas, the company said in a news release.
Vadala, previously a senior vice president at Bury Inc., brings more than 20 years of experience to the leadership team at Dunaway. He will participate in corporate strategy while leading all of its business development initiatives statewide.
“What attracted me about Dunaway, first, were their core values – specifically the integrity of the company’s leadership, and the respect they show to their employees and clients,” said Vadala, a Texas native, who graduated from Texas Tech University.
“I also saw a company that relishes its history but is forward thinking. We have tremendous potential through our market sector diversification and acquisition opportunities, such as UDG, which we acquired in Austin last year,” Vadala said.
Ross Eubanks, vice president of Dunaway, has known Vadala for years.
“Chris and I have been friends for over a decade and have discussed ways in which we could bring his proven leadership to Dunaway. Now it’s a reality,” said Eubanks.
Dunaway is a professional services company in business for more than 60 years with offices in Fort Worth, Austin, Midland and San Antonio. Dunaway provides a range of services, including civil engineering, structural engineering, planning and landscape architecture, environmental engineering, surveying, and GIS services.
