Congratulations to Brian Van Auker and Darrel Speed, recently certified as Project Management Profes

Brian Van Auker (left), Program Manager and Darrel Speed (right), Project Manager, recently passed the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam. Following the Project Management Institute’s standards on Project Management, they attended a week-long preparation course and have been studying diligently to prepare for the exam over the past several months. The PMP certification is an industry-recognized certification for Project Managers. This is a huge personal and professional accomplishment for Brian and Darrel and the Program Management Services Division.

Brian joined the Program Management Services Division in early 2015, providing oversight and coordination for a local utility’s infrastructure program. He has worked alongside other members of the Program team in developing unique tools and processes to improve the management efficiency and delivery of programs for the utility.

Since joining LaBella in early 2015, Darrel works as a Project Manager in Maine on electric utility infrastructure projects. He has also helped the Program Management Services Division complete Risk Analyses used in the planning and budgeting of large capital improvement projects in the alternative energy field.
