Originally operating out of a Victorian house in Marlboro, NJ, Maser Consulting was founded in 1984 when Chairman Richard M. Maser, PE, PP, CME made a commitment to introduce and develop the next generation of engineering services. Bringing his vast knowledge of engineering to the firm, Maser Consulting initially focused on Civil/Site Development, Municipal, Traffic and Land Surveying services.
The next two decades brought many changes to Maser Consulting. Investments made in the hiring of key professionals and implementation of advanced technology built a solid foundation for the future. Maser Consulting was taking shape as the multi-discipline firm it is today through reinforcing its commercial capabilities and adding Water/Wastewater and Geotechnical Engineering, Ecological, Environmental, Bridges and Structures, Telecommunications and Infrastructure Services. The company also opened new offices in Maryland, Virginia, Florida and New Mexico, launching the firm from serving clients along the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic coast to a more national reach.
In 2013, Maser Consulting implemented a new strategic management structure consisting of two new positions to better manage the firm’s growth: Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) and Chief Operating Officer (COO). The positions were filled respectively by Leonardo E. Ponzio, PLS and Kevin L. Haney, PE.
Additionally, the firm expanded its service lines by adding advanced geospatial surveying technologies including High-Definition Laser Scanning and Mobile LiDAR Mapping and the Amberg Technologies system used for railway and tunnel surveying, which became a milestone for the firm.
In 2016, Mr. Haney was advanced to the position of President and Mr. Ponzio to Executive Vice President. Both continued their previous responsibilities as COO/CAO respectively.
While maintaining his role as Executive Chairman of the firm, Mr. Maser passed the CEO responsibilities to Mr. Haney at the beginning of 2020. As CEO/President, Mr. Haney will continue to execute the company’s strategic plan, increasing growth by strengthening existing locations by building-out more diversified service lines.
Division Director of Civil and Site Development Joseph A. Dopico, PE was elevated to COO. A seasoned member of the firm’s Executive Committee, Mr. Dopico has been with Maser Consulting for over 26 years, opened the firm’s first office in New York and continues to oversee services from our Newburgh, NY office.
As Executive Chairman of the firm, Mr. Maser will continue seeking opportunities that will strengthen and provide long term stability for the company while steering its direction for success.
Today, Maser Consulting is an award-winning company headquartered in Red Bank, NJ and employs over 1,000 professionals in 34 offices nationwide. Over 35 years of service diversification has kept the company strong, enabling strategic expansion and regional growth in a continued effort to meet the challenge of its clients’ ever-changing needs.
