October 26th, 2018 by

The RCC team is thrilled to announce the promotions of Robert Braun from Project Engineer to Assistant Project Manager and Liza Camacho from Intern to Project Engineer. Robert has been a dedicated member of the team for nearly three years, starting with us right out of college and never looking back.

She joined the team full time in August as a Project Engineer and is currently working with our Project Director, Brad Malouf, on several high-profile tech projects. Liza’s architectural background and ability to rapidly take on new responsibility have made her a critical member of the team.
