NTH was incorporated in Michigan in 1968, founded by Jerry Neyer, Benedict Tiseo, and Kal Hindo, primarily as a geotechnical firm. Throughout the years, the firm has grown into a full-service professional consulting firm providing a wide range of services in civil, geotechnical, environmental engineering to a variety of public and private clients. More than a decade ago, the founders turned over the reins to a new generation of leaders, including Keith M. Swaffar, P.E. and Kevin Hoppe, P.E., outgoing CEO and now Executive Chairperson. In the 1980's the founders decided to begin the transition the firm into an employee-owned company through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), so that the employees would ultimately benefit directly from the company's success. Kevin and the executive team effectively led the company through the past two decades and worked hard to convert NTH into a 100% ESOP-owned company. With that goal reached, he now passes the torch to the NTH 3.0 leaders.
