“IF I HAVE SEEN FURTHER, IT IS BY STANDING ON THE SHOULDERS OF THE GIANTS”
Sir Isaac Newton
The engineers at Deborah D. Keller and Partners formed the firm after decades of government service in senior engineering management positions. They have both lived and worked in the Greater New Orleans area for over 60 years. They saw a real need for experienced engineer-leaders who are have multiple skills and capabilities beyond engineering design. Most of this need is due to the ever increasing turnover in human resources, both in government and private businesses, as they are merge, dissolve, or turn to outsourcing. The firm provides proven problem-solving and institutional knowledge that only comes from planning, designing, budgeting, constructing, administrating, operating and maintaining infrastructure.
