“John Horton, LS and Greg Dodd, PE are well-respected professionals in the Hampton Roads community, and have built a recognizable brand through their commitment to excellence,” said Gregory Koontz, President & CEO, Koontz Bryant Johnson Williams.  “Koontz Bryant Johnson Williams is excited about our growth in the Hampton Roads area and proud to add them to our team. This merger will enhance our ability to deliver exceptional professional services in the Hampton Roads area.”

Principals and original founders of Horton & Dodd, John Horton and Greg Dodd will continue to have a visible presence throughout the transition, allowing them to offer enhanced services to their existing clients.

“We are excited to become part of the KBJW family,” said Greg Dodd, Principal, Horton & Dodd.  “Combining our resources and growing the team in our Chesapeake office allows us to offer new and expanded services in the Hampton Roads and surrounding area.”

The merger increases KBJW’s ever-growing team of professional engineers, geologists, scientists, surveyors, and project managers, allowing the firm to offer an even more diverse cross-section of engineering experience to any project, large or small in the Hampton Roads and surrounding areas.
