MHP Announces First Associate Principal, James Kramer
MHP, Inc. Structural Engineers is proud to name James Kramer, S.E. as the firm’s first Associate Principal. James embodies MHP’s core values of responsiveness, service, integrity, and education. He consistently demonstrates outstanding service to our clients and exemplary leadership to MHP’s engineering staff. After graduating with a degree in Architectural Engineering from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1999, James began his structural engineering career with MHP. During his twenty years with the firm, he has developed from Project Engineer to his new role as Associate Principal.
In this role, James is responsible for leading our project teams while expanding his relationships with the firm’s existing and new clients. James manages a wide range of design and retrofit projects for healthcare, multi-family, education, industrial and retail clients. From schematic design to construction administration, James is a deadline-focused and responsive project manager that serves as a mentor to MHP’s up-and-coming engineers.
“I am honored for the opportunity to continue my growth with MHP and look forward to being instrumental in the success of the company while working with the leadership team to strategize future growth,” says James.
Outside of MHP he enjoys the outdoors and spending time with his family.
“As the current Scoutmaster for my kids BSA Scout Troop and past High Adventure coordinator, I love enjoying all mother nature has to offer for adventure and self-reliance. Helping teach young men and women how to enjoy the great outdoors safely and responsibly is one of my passions. At MHP I have the opportunity to bring the same passion to mentoring young engineers while solving unique problems, nurturing professional growth, and helping clients realize their goals.”
Focused on providing a long-term home to its employees, MHP is inspired by James’s leadership as he empowers our employees in career advancement and professional development.
