We are pleased to announce that Darral Moore, PE is the new Land Development Group leader for the Kennewick area. Vince Loftus, PE, who has led the Kennewick group for over 30 years, will now focus more on his role as the J-U-B Corporate Land Development Lead and working with our Area Managers and Group Leaders to grow our private practice in some of our bigger markets.

Darral has over 26 years of engineering experience, specializing in land development for industrial, commercial, residential, and institutional developments. His variety of clients and project types have resulted in a vast knowledge base including land use planning, site feasibility, site grading, stormwater, utilities, and

Darral’s promotion will allow him to focus more on business development, management, and leadership of Kennewick’s local Land Development Group. He is supported by a team of 7 professionals who provide engineering and planning services to a continually growing commercial, residential, and industrial development market in the Tri-Cities and surrounding areas.

Vince started with J-U-B as an intern in the summer of 1985. His engineering experience includes observation, storm drainage, water, sewer, traffic modeling, road design, airport, and municipal engineering. Eventually, Vince specialized in land development and the private sector. Vince has been licensed in seven states and has served clients’ needs on projects in Washington, Oregon,
Idaho, Utah, Nevada, California, Hawaii, Montana, Colorado, Arizona, and Kansas.

In the land development market, Vince led J-U-B teams on many different projects, including retail rollouts, master-planned communities, hospitals, schools, life sciences, and industrial facilities, to name a few.

Vince was elected to J-U-B’s Board in 2012. His focus at J-U-B has been building relationships and project teams through the long hallway, sharing J-U-B’s history and culture, and increasing awareness of the engineering opportunities in the private sector to “help each other create better communities.”

“This transition is a progression of leadership opportunity for both Darral and Vince, and one that will only strengthen our overall land development practice throughout the company. Darral’s relationships in the Kennewick market and his extensive experience and timeproven expertise with land development projects in the Tri-Cities area make him a natural choice to continue our growth and success in that region.

Vince has a lengthy and very successful track record of tremendous business acumen with a focus on growing and strengthening relationships. His new role will allow him to better focus on working with our area managers throughout the company to promote more coordinated business development, recruiting, and growth and opportunities for our land development practice company-wide. We are truly excited for both Vince and Darral with their new roles!”
