Before his role at HDR, Carlos held several leadership positions at John Chance Land Surveys, Inc. (FUGRO), including VP, COO, and President.

Carlos has over 20 years of experience managing teams that performed surveys for tens of thousands of miles of transmission lines, pipelines and railways and more recently dams, spillways and bridges.
