Applied Names Ralph Power as New President

Board of Directors

Terry DeBoo, Frank St. John, Ralph Power, and John Yoder

Applied Engineering Services, an Indianapolis-based consulting engineering firm, is pleased to announce the appointment of Ralph Power, P.E., as President.

Power began his engineering career in 1981 and joined Applied Engineering in 1999. He became a Principal in 2005, a shareholder in 2006 and a member of the Board of Directors in 2013.

Power’s promotion comes as part of Applied Engineering’s business transition plan, which was initiated in 2012. Frank St. John, P.E., LEED AP, who has served as President since the firm began, will remain an officer and Chairman of the Board as Power assumes the lead role of the firm, ensuring a smooth transition.

“I am thrilled to pass the torch to Ralph, who is a creative, talented and thoughtful leader,” said St. John. “He was the obvious choice by me and the other two founding Principals, Terry DeBoo and John Yoder, to guide the firm to continued success. While I will remain active with the firm, I am confident in Ralph’s abilities and look forward to assisting him in this transition.”

Power added, “I would like to thank Frank for all of his hard work to grow this company and his leadership over the past 18 years. I am really looking forward to working with him, Terry, and John to ensure these changes are seamless for our clients and employees.”

Applied Engineering is also pleased to announce two additional promotions.

Brad Wertz, LEED AP, has been promoted to Senior Project Manager. Wertz is an electrical engineer with more than two decades of experience, including 10 years with Applied Engineering. Loren Horan, P.E., RCDD, LEED AP, has been promoted to Project Manager. He is an electrical/telecommunications engineer who has been with the firm since 2006. Both Wertz and Horan are shareholders in Applied Engineering.
