Austin Mr. Gabriel Ornelas, Jr. PE, Vice President of Raba Kistner Consultants (RKCI) and Principle-in-Charge of the Austin office, is pleased to announce the promotion of M. Devin Williamson to the position of Associate. Devin has earned this promotion in recognition of his significant contributions to the firm in the past, as well as his expected role to develop the Austin and New Braunfels regions going forward.

Devin Williamson has been with RKCI for more than 7 years and has been a strong supporter of the overall growth vision of the firm. Devin began his career as part of the Corporate Development team in San Antonio, in 2007, supporting geotechnical and construction materials testing and engineering growth objectives. In a short period of time, he demonstrated excellent skills in client management, client retention, and expanding the firm’s client network. When a business development position became available for the Austin regional office, Devin was selected to bring his skills to Austin. He has made Austin his home and covers much of the I-35 corridor area, including the Austin-San Antonio corridor, including north to Waco, east to Bastrop, south to Seguin and west into the Hill Country. He’s also helping to develop the company’s New Braunfels office, opened in spring, 2012.

“Devin is a close advisor to his clients, helping them to accomplish their project objectives, often with a shortened learning curve because of his experience and relationships,” said Joe Irizarry, Vice President of Corporate Development. “He makes sure that his clients have full access to all of our services, as well as access to all of our economic development and financial partners in the industry. We consider Devin to be a true Thought Leader and an unmatched asset in our industry.”

“Devin has been an excellent addition to Austin’s growth team,” said Mr. Ornelas. “He has proven himself to be very responsible and trustworthy, both qualities which earn him the trust and confidence of many of our clients and employees. His tenacious drive to collect intelligence and implement strategic plans to position RKCI for new projects is unparalleled. I am very pleased with his promotion and feel strongly that he will continue to implement the growth strategies of the firm,” Ornelas finished.

Mr. Williamson graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Advertising.
