Chief Agri has made two staff announcements.
Luke Oswald was named mechanical engineering manager.
Oswald grew up on a family farm near Aurora, NE, before attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and receiving his bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering.
During college, Oswald interned three years in the molding design department at Schneider Electric in Lincoln. Upon graduation, he began his career at Orthman Conveying Systems designing heavy industrial material handling equipment.
Scott Berkey is promoted to structural engineering manager.
Berkey received his bachelor of science degree in architectural engineering from Vermont Technical College and his master of engineering degree in civil engineering from Norwich University, VT.
After college, Berkey spent eight years as a consulting engineer in New England on civil and structural engineering projects.
Berkey’s structural design experience during this time allowed him to work a variety of materials like steel, concrete and wood. Some of Berkey’s larger projects while working as a consulting engineer included buildings, bridges and towers.
Following his consulting days, Berkey spent eight years with TC Energy as senior engineer providing oversight on civil and structural projects. During his time as senior engineer, he worked on projects at oil, gas, wind and hydro facilities across North America.
Berkey joined the Chief Agri team in January 2021 as senior structural engineer.
