Austin Black has accepted the position of Builder Service Supervisor for Kirby. Austin received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering in December 2004 from Tennessee Technological University. Immediately upon graduation, he began his career with Kirby as a Design Engineer. In January 2007, Austin transfered to Regional Group Services as a Senior IT Design Engineer and in July of 2009 he passed the Principles and Practices (PE) Exam. He was promoted to Technical Systems Supervisor in July 2010. After a thorough interview process, the Kirby Leadership Team believes that Austin's combination of education and experience makes him the right person to lead the newly formed Builder Service Department. Austin will transition to this position over the next week as his NBG Group Services duties are assumed by others.
