“I am honored, and it is a great privilege for the opportunity to lead Aguirre & Fields into our next chapter, building on our values of serving and bettering our communities and of taking care of our people. Oscar has been a trusted mentor and partner and my intention is to lead this company with the care, drive, and passion that Oscar has modeled for years,” said Lubitz.

Lubitz joined the firm in 2009 as a project manager and structural engineer with leadership responsibility for communities in Central Texas. He is currently the incoming Chair of the Central Texas Board for the American Council of Engineering Companies of Texas, advancing and protecting the interests of the consulting engineering community.

As the Chief Marketing Officer, Mark Gribble will use his extraordinary reputation as a leader, communicator, and engineer to expand the company’s efforts in relationship development with our valued communities.
