Growth and Leadership
During our annual spring stockholder’s meeting, we had the pleasure of introducing advancements in ownership with six new stockholders, five new partners, and one senior partner. These individuals possess the expertise and the dedication to clients that enable our continued success, and we’re proud to call them RDG family!.
The new stockholders have each shown the capability to positively affect the overall success of RDG and the ability to work effectively in the RDG team environment with staff and clients. They are:
Mike Houston – Intern Architect ; Hilary Navratil – Interior Designer; Matt Niebuhr – Artist/Designe; Lorin Ditzler, AICP – Urban Planner; Dave Heuring, AIA – Architect; Bruce Niedermyer – Intern Landscape Architect
Each new partner has demonstrated leadership, management, and organizational skills along with a reinforcement of vision and creativity critical to the continued success of RDG.

Her work focuses on supporting all projects with the means to achieve social, environmental, and economic results.

He has successfully engineered power, lighting, security, and life-safety systems for a wide variety of project types in each of RDG’s major market sectors.

It’s no small accomplishment to be invited to become a senior partner. The capability to lead a focus market; to envision, discuss, and influence the strategic direction of RDG; and demonstration of an acute business sense are skills developed in reaching this level. Congratulations to Randy Milbrath on achieving this significant milestone.
We recognize that innovation, leadership, dedication, and commitment are imperative to the growth and diversity of our firm, and we offer our sincere thanks and congratulations to each of these RDG team members.
