Applied Engineering Services Promotes Two to Principal

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Applied Engineering Services (Applied) is pleased to announce the promotion of Loren Horan, PE, RCDD, LEED AP, and Dan Miles, PE, LEED AP, to Principal.

Horan joined Applied in 2006, became a shareholder in 2013, and has steadily worked his way into this leadership position. He remarked, “I am truly humbled by this recognition. I would like to thank Ralph Power, John Yoder, Terry DeBoo and Frank St. John for providing an environment where I could hone my engineering skills, develop as a leader and grow as a person. In my new role, I look forward to building productive relationships with our clients and design partners and cultivating a company culture where all employees feel valued and respected. I am blessed to be a part of the Applied family.”

Miles joined the firm in 2015, bringing three decades of experience. He became a shareholder and stepped into a leadership position in 2018. “I find it a great honor to be named a Principal at Applied,” Miles said. “Thirty-three years as a mechanical engineer providing solutions to clients in the advanced manufacturing, healthcare and higher education markets has aligned my experience with a company that has become well-recognized in those markets. Applied has built a great client base because of 22 years of engineering solutions to our client’s scope and budget and provides a culture for its employees that is unparalleled to any other firm I have worked with. We have worked hard to plan for a solid future for the company and I look forward to helping implement that plan. I am delighted to finish my career at such a fine company.”

“Loren and Dan were natural choices to become our next Principals as part of our continuing business and leadership transition plan,” noted Power, President of Applied. “The future of Applied is secure under their guidance.”
