Texas Scenic Company Announces Organizational and Management Changes

Steve Surratt, COO/GM at Texas Scenic Company in San Antonio, Texas, announces the following organizational and management changes at Texas Scenic:

Hien Luong, industry veteran and vice president of engineering, has retired to spend more time with family and friends. "In Hien's departure," says Surratt, "it's a perfect time to reevaluate our engineering needs and to restructure the engineering and project management teams at Texas Scenic. We want to be in the best position to serve our customer's needs."

Joel Guerra, currently the automation and service director, will take on the lead role left open by Luong, but as director of engineering and service. He will lead the new organized engineering service group (ESG), consisting of the engineering, automation, and service teams. Richard L. Rosas (PE) will continue in his position as structural engineer for the ESG. Grace Gavin, currently the project management supervisor, will assume new supervisor duties within the ESG as the project manager and engineering supervisor. David Zamarripa will take a new role as the lead application/CAD engineer on the engineering team. Other engineering team members include John Elias, Gary Freeman, Jesus Mejia, and David Saenz. Project managers Larry Alonzo, Adam Ballard, Michael Freeman, Guillermo Guerra, Ethan Lobo, and Patrick Surratt will now also be an integral part in the engineering process as part of the ESG. The goal of the restructure is to streamline the company's processes, help improve cross-team communications, and to eliminate mistakes which the company says will give customers even higher quality products and projects.

Richard Mecke, president at Texas Scenic, also announces that Roy Harline and Guerra have both been asked to join the executive management group (EMG). Harline, sales and design, has been with TSC for 18 years and holds a masters of fine arts degree in theatre design and technology from Brigham Young University. Guerra has been with TSC for 15 years and holds a masters of science degree in electrical engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Both bring years of industry experience and knowledge to the EMG.
