N&SA Names Stumbo And Hagemann Vice Presidents
Donald M. Surgenor, executive vice president/general manager of Nickum & Spaulding Associates, Inc., Seattle-based naval architecture/ marine engineering firm, announced the appointment of two vice presidents: Stan C. Stumbo as vice president, operations and E.C. Hagemann as vice president, engineering.
Mr. Stumbo, also named assistant general manager, will be responsible for office and project operations as well as other related activities. Mr. Hagemann, who was with W.C. Nickum & Sons, Inc., when the firm merged in 1971 with Philip F. Spaulding and Associates, Inc., will oversee and coordinate the company's engineering, computer applications, and research and development. The appointments come at a time when N&SA's workload level is increasing. The firm was recently awarded contracts to design a 370-foot bulk-cement barge, Seattle's new multipurpose harbor service crafts, and the first commercial berthing tug in the United States using the Voith-Schneider propeller system, i n t e r n a t i o n a l l y known for its great maneuvering abilities.
Mr. Surgenor noted that along with the appointments of Messrs. Stumbo and Hagemann, other supervisory appointments were also made to f u r t h e r consolidate N&SA's internal organization. Gordon C. Snyder will head N&SA's consulting services while Paul A. Gow will direct N&SA's preliminary design unit. J. Steve Cleary, Frank C. Vibrans Jr., and Gary B. Parker will head hull engineering, marine engineering and electrical engineering respectively. L.P. Menne will direct project management.
