Engineer of the Moment: Rick Naumann


This month's "Engineer of the Moment" is Rick Naumann! A native of Rochester, NY, Rick joined LERA as a Design Engineer in 2011 and was promoted to Associate in 2016. Based in LERA's New York office, Rick is one of our most traveled engineers. In 2016, he relocated to LERA's office in Shanghai, China for six months, contributing to several projects in Asia and helping to open LERA's new Hong Kong office. He returned in 2018 for a four-month spell to help with a new office development project.


What was it like living and working in China? "Very different," he says. "In general, they have a more fast-paced, dynamic approach to design than what I had experience up to that point." An avid traveler, Rick also visited Japan and Indonesia duri
