Founded in 1956, Dunaway first established our North Texas presence in our Fort Worth office. Through our continued growth over our 64-year history, we have expanded to offices in Austin, Midland, and San Antonio while continuing to have an impact on the DFW area. As that growth continues, Dunaway is thrilled to announce the hiring of Simon Harris IV as the newest addition to our North Texas team.
Over the past twenty years, Dunaway team members have been a part of an extensive list of projects for the City of Dallas. Key projects include Flag Pole Hill Trail and Park Master Plan, Lake Highlands Trail, and the addition of six new spraygrounds to existing parks.
Simon, previously with KATERRA, will serve as Dunaway’s North Texas Regional Development Director, bringing with him over 18 years of experience in the planning, design, and construction industry. A graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Simon received his bachelor’s degree in architecture; practicing design prior to shifting talents to building business. “I’m excited to help Dunaway grow across Texas,” explains Simon. As he notes, “Dunaway has cultivated a team based on expertise and responsiveness which has proven beneficial to our clients and strategic partners. It’s clear to me that the passion of our people is our greatest asset, and integrity remains the lifeblood of our success.”
Simon will serve to enhance our presence in Dallas, focusing on the Commercial and Healthcare market sectors. His experience with operational requirements within the built environment and ability to enhance the client’s expectations from conception to project closeout, solidifies his passion for growth. “Simon’s addition to our team is a game-changer for Dunaway in the Dallas market,” explains Dunaway’s Corporate Development Executive, Chris Vadala. “His vast experience combined with his personal values and character is a winning formula.”
We are excited to continue to make an impact in the North Texas region, and we believe that Simon’s hands-on experience in planning, programming, and implementation, in addition to his proven track record for building and maintaining strong client relationships will make him an asset to our North Texas Team.
