Greg Swafford Joins Firm as Principal in Dallas
Smith Seckman Reid, Inc. (SSR), a leader among engineering firms in designing, consulting, and commissioning projects, is pleased to announce that Greg Swafford has joined the firm as a Principal in the Dallas office. He will provide client and project leadership for a variety of sports & entertainment projects.
“We are excited to add Greg to our growing Dallas – Fort Worth presence,” said Scott Terry, Principal. “Greg gives us the opportunity to strengthen our growing sports & entertainment market presence with his leadership and technical experience, while also continuing to diversify the markets we serve as part of DFW. He will be a great addition to our clients, colleagues, and projects across the country.”
Throughout Greg’s 20-year plus career, his focus has been on the sports & entertainment market, serving in different business development, project, and client management roles. He was involved in The Ford Center at The Star, located in Frisco, TX, a 560,000 SF training facility and headquarters for the Dallas Cowboys; SoFi Stadium, the three million square foot home to the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers in Inglewood, CA; and Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ, the Chicago Cubs spring training facility.
“The majority of my career has been working at different consulting firms, but after spending a few years in manufacturing, returning to MEP engineering was never really a consideration,” states Swafford. “However, SSR’s history of success, their impassioned leaders, and vision for the future was a strong attraction. I am excited to partner with the sports industry experts to deliver world-class venues for our clients and communities. I fully expect SSR’s sports & entertainment group to continue its winning ways, and I can’t wait to contribute to that next level of success.”
Greg was the Regional 5 Affiliate Liaison and previous Dallas/Fort Worth board member of the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE); committee member of the ASHRAE SPC 514 (Risk Management for Building Water Systems: Physical, Chemical and Microbial Hazards); and vice chairman of the ASPE Working Group 99 Thermal Disinfection Standard.
