Herbert, Rowland & Grubic, Inc. (HRG) has designated Christopher Dellinger, Justin Mendinsky, and Dan Santoro as direct shareholders of the firm. Each has been invited to purchase a special class of shares in the employee-owned firm.

Dellinger, Mendinsky, and Santoro were chosen for this honor because of their commitment to the company and the strong leadership they have exhibited during their many years of service.

Dellinger is the practice area leader for HRG’s land development service group and a registered professional engineer in both Pennsylvania and Maryland. He began his career at HRG as an entry-level project designer and has worked his way up to leading the entire division. Andrew Kenworthy, HRG’s eastern region vice president, says, “Chris has almost 20 years of experience serving real estate development clients. He knows their business needs very well and inspires all of our land development professionals to provide the highest level of service.”

Mendinsky is a project manager and team leader in HRG’s water and wastewater service group. Like Dellinger, Mendinsky joined the firm as an entry-level project designer and has progressed through several leadership roles over the years. Mendinsky is a registered professional engineer and was recently named one of engineering’s top young professionals by Engineering News-Record’s Mid-Atlantic Division. Ed Ellinger, the practice area leader for HRG’s water and wastewater group, says, “Justin’s philosophy is that potential is limitless, and he continually inspires his fellow employees with a positive attitude and boundless enthusiasm.”

Santoro is the regional manager of HRG’s Pittsburgh office. He has more than 25 years of experience in regional planning and public management and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners. Prior to joining HRG as director of our land development service group in 2014, he was an assistant township manager and director of planning and engineering for Cranberry Township, Butler County. Jason Fralick, HRG’s western region vice president, says, “Dan understands the challenges of municipal government from all sides, and he has a passion for finding creative solutions to those challenges for our clients. He has done a great job leading our Pittsburgh office to new levels of growth.”
