Coffman Engineers, Inc. (Coffman) is pleased to announce the promotion of Christopher Haight, PE, SE, to General Manager of the Orange County office in Newport Beach.

Christopher joined Coffman in 2017 when Hope-Amundson, Inc. joined the company. Since that time, as the Operations Manager of the Orange County office, Christopher has grown the office from a staff of four structural engineers to 17 multidiscipline engineering professionals and support staff. A structural engineer by trade, Christopher has over 27 years of experience designing and managing various projects throughout California. As the Managing Principal, he will continue to grow the office, adding staff to the existing structural, mechanical, and fire protection engineering groups while expanding into additional disciplines.

The leadership transition coincides with Coffman’s recent growth in Southern California and Coffman’s strategy to develop leaders to support the expansion of office locations. Christopher will continue to manage daily operations, maintain responsive services, and implement a broader business strategy for the Orange County area.

“Christopher has exemplified what it takes to lead an office within Coffman, and we’re excited to recognize his contributions and support the continued growth of the Orange County office,” said Scott Twele, PE, Southwest Regional Manager. 

“I’m proud of the team we have in Orange County and the client relationships we’ve developed,” said Haight. “Growing together has been part of our focus here and the effort is evident. I’m excited to see what the future will bring.”

Coffman’s Orange County office offers multidiscipline engineering services, including structural, mechanical, commissioning, and fire protection. Notable projects include the UC Riverside Plant Growth Environments Facility, Cuesta College Campus Center, Timmons Subaru Car Dealership, Norris Elementary School, and Silvergate Rancho Bernardo Senior Living Facility.
