GRL Engineers, Inc. Announces Scott Webster, P.E., President

Scott Webster, P.E. Incoming GRL President

GRL Engineers, Inc., announces today that Scott Webster, P.E., has been appointed the position of company president as of July 8, 2022. A 30-year GRL veteran executive and principal engineer, Mr. Webster will succeed Patrick Hannigan, P.E.

Mr. Webster, previously the GRL vice president managing the firm’s global offshore and North Carolina-based regional operations, will oversee GRL’s 14 offices, leading the GRL’s management team, engineers, and staff in providing its wide array of deep foundation testing services both in the US and globally. He has a vast experience in providing testing and engineering analyses of deep foundations for structures worldwide. Mr. Webster has written and presented dozens of technical papers on deep foundations at various industry events throughout his tenure.

In 2019, Mr. Webster was elected Treasurer of the Pile Drivers Contractor’s Association (PDCA), the same year he received the Professional Engineer’s Service Award.  He is also a member of the ADSC, ASCE, DFI, and National Society of Engineers and will continue to provide GRL leadership within the industry. “It is an honor to be selected as the next President of GRL Engineers,” states Webster. “I’m lucky to have had the opportunity to work closely with both former GRL Presidents, Frank Rausche and Pat Hannigan throughout my career, and look forward to the future of the organization.”

Pat Hannigan, P.E. Outgoing GRL President

Mr. Hannigan is stepping down after having been GRL president for the past 11 years. During his tenure, he was able to guide GRL into new areas of deep foundations testing and analysis while maintaining GRL’s position as the world leader of dynamic testing and analysis of driven piles. His expertise and leadership have resulted in significant growth of GRL’s technical capabilities, areas of practice, industry influence, and branch locations. Mr. Hannigan was instrumental in GRL’s Bi-Directional Static Load Testing (BDSLT) and Top-Load Bi-Directional Testing (TLBT) initiatives and development. During his 45-year long career he has authored numerous technical papers covering all aspects of deep foundations testing and analyses.  He is the lead author of the 1997, 2006, and 2016 editions of the FHWA manual for “Design and Construction of Driven Pile Foundations.” Mr. Hannigan will continue with GRL as a senior consultant providing his expertise on BDSLT / TLBT projects, workshop/training seminars, and numerous other activities.
