MNS Welcomes Two New Key Hires to Boost Southern California Growth

MNS is pleased to announce the addition of Jarrad Truman, PLS, Principal Surveyor, to the Survey team and Patrick De Guzman, PE, Traffic Lead, to the Transportation team!

“We are thrilled to welcome these skilled professionals to the MNS team,” said Darren Riegler, President and CEO. “Their extensive experience will greatly benefit our growing Surveying and Transportation practices and offerings as we execute our aggressive growth strategy in Southern California.”

Jarrad Truman has over 30 years of experience in land surveying and is a proven leader, innovator, and project manager. With his extensive background in managing large complex surveying projects, Jarrad has built teams of uniquely trained experts to support our clients’ needs. Some notable projects he’s been involved with include the I-10 Corridor Express Lanes Contract 1. This design-build project widened 11 miles of freeway between Los Angeles County and the I-15. Other projects include the Crenshaw Metro K Line in Los Angeles, an 8.5-mile light rail route which included 4 tunnels, 15 bridge widenings, and 8 light rail stations; the I-10/Jefferson Street Interchange Improvements project; and the Colorado River Aqueduct As-Needed Survey Services contract.

“Jarrad is a welcome addition to the Survey team! His decades of experience and technical expertise in the areas of land and construction surveying are essential components of our strategic plan to extend our geographical footprint in the Inland Empire and Los Angeles County,” said Jeff Edwards, Vice President of Government Services and Surveying.

Patrick De Guzman joined MNS in late November after an exemplary public sector career. He has been recognized for his outstanding contributions in traffic and transportation engineering in the areas of active transportation, traffic safety, and roadway enhancements. His successful project management skills have led to the completion of numerous infrastructure improvement projects across multiple jurisdictions throughout Southern California. In this new role at MNS, Patrick will lead our Traffic Engineering practice, offering greater depth and expertise to our highly qualified team of transportation professionals.

When asked about implementing this new service line, Brandon Reyes, Vice President of Transportation commented, “The addition of Patrick to the Transportation team enhances our transportation portfolio by providing comprehensive traffic engineering services. I believe this new offering will greatly benefit our clients and colleagues as the industry braces for record investments in transportation infrastructure development.”

Both Jarrad and Partick are based out of the Rancho Cucamonga office, enabling MNS to expand and deliver top-notch services to our Southern California clients. With expansion in sight, MNS will be opening a new office in the City of Riverside in early 2024.
