Rick Klatt

rick-klatt Born and raised: I was born in Detroit, MI at the same time the Detroit Riots were ongoing; however, we moved away when I was one. Therefore, I was too young to know what was going on and only remember this from the slide, yes slides, that my dad took. After Detroit, we moved to Ames, Iowa where I lived up until the time that I was 5 at which point we moved to Omaha NE, which is where I essentially grew up attending school from 1st grade through high school graduation except for one semester where I attended Westwood High School in Austin TX. My parents moved to Austin after my junior year of high school so I attended Westwood but could return to Omaha and stay with a friend and his parents the second semester which allowed me to graduate with my class.
Department at M&S: Transportation Division Manager
What I do here: I am leveraging the tremendous talents here at M&S Engineering to enter into the TxDOT market.
School Attended/ Discipline: I attended the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Campus (Main Campus) where I received my B.S. in Civil Engineering.

I’ve worked for over 30-years working for Engineering Companies having worked all through college on a part time during school year/ full time during the summers. My focus has been PS&E and Program Management of large transportation projects primarily with the Central Texas. Within Texas I’ve also worked for Parsons Brinckerhoff and for Travis County. Prior to moving to Austin in the mid 90’s I worked for VHB in Boston MA, where I worked on what has come to be known as the Big Dig. Prior to Moving to Boston, I worked for a small company called Speece-Lewis Engineers where I worked during school as well as several years following graduation.
Hobbies: In my spare time, I enjoy trying to get in a little exercise time either lifting weights or running. I enjoy following everything Nebraska Cornhuskers. I enjoy a good game of golf although I would consider my golf game average. A past hobby that I used to have which I haven’t done for a long time is windsurfing. I used to windsurf when I was 18 out at Windy Point located on Lake Travis.
