Neel-Schaffer Leadership Transition in Golden Triangle Area Signals Continued Growth Following Merger

JACKSON, MS — Neel-Schaffer, Inc., announces new leadership roles in the West Point and Starkville, Mississippi, offices, reinforcing the company's connection with the Golden Triangle area following its merger with Calvert-Spradling Engineers in February 2023.

John Cunningham, PE, will take over as Office Manager in West Point, and William Sanford, PE, will lead the Starkville office.

Cunningham has more than 29 years of experience, having honed his skills as a Project Engineer and Project Manager across a diverse array of projects and disciplines. Since 2019, he has served as a Vice President with the firm and has led the Starkville office since April 2020. Cunningham's return to West Point carries with it an understanding of the local engineering needs. His experience with Neel-Schaffer and Calvert-Spradling positions him to integrate the strengths of both organizations.

“It’s heartening to see John return to his hometown and the office where his career began," said Stanley Spradling, PE, PLS, Senior Client Manager for the West Point Office. "His unwavering commitment to our clients and superior work are key to maintaining the success of our West Point office and the solutions they offer.”

In addition to Cunningham's appointment, Neel-Schaffer announces an expanded role for Sanford in the Starkville office. With over eight years of experience collaborating closely with the Columbus/Starkville office leadership, he is well-acquainted with the operations of the office and needs of the company's clients, and he has experience working with community partners. His new role enhances Neel-Schaffer's capacity to drive growth and innovation while maintaining the service clients expect.

“Both of these leaders embody our core values of Care, Service, and Excellence,” said Joey Hudnall, PE, Neel-Schaffer’s President and CEO. “Through those values they will provide excellent service while continuing to give back to the communities that not only gave me my start, but are near and dear to my heart. I could not be prouder of and for both John and William.”
