WALNUT CREEK, Calif. October 29, 2020 – LEE + RO, Inc., today announced that Kenneth Creager, P.E., has joined the firm as a supervising electrical engineer working out of its Walnut Creek office. Creager has more than three decades of electrical and I&C experience in the water, wastewater, utilities, and petrochemical fields. His expertise includes power generation, substation design, power distribution, heavy industrial/facilities design, as well as automation and control systems design, power system analysis, master planning, and construction.
Said Tony Park, vice president and head of LEE + RO’s Northern California operations, “Ken’s diverse industry experience and proven leadership ability gives us additional senior-level resources to continue our accelerated growth while also providing our younger engineers with a hands-on mentor to help with their ongoing growth and development.”
"LEE + ROs solid reputation in electrical and I&C along with its in-house team were major differentiators and considerations," said Creager. "But it was their business model of bringing in new grads and young engineers to work side-by-side with senior experienced engineers that was the deciding factor. I’m where I am today because I had a couple of mentors during my early years to help me make the transition from textbooks to project engineering."
As vice president of electrical and I&C at Montgomery Watson Harza, Creager was responsible for technical guidance for electrical system design, developing SOWs, and providing technical direction to the engineering staff. In the petrochemical industry, Creager has executed projects for Valero Refining, Marathon Oil, Chevron Refining, and other organizations where he had a significant role in all aspects of electrical equipment and systems design, including electrical switchgear and motor control centers, transformers, as well as, construction and commissioning.
Creager received his B.S. degree in electrical engineering from University of the Pacific. He is a California-registered professional engineer (electrical) and is member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.
