A Message from All of Us at ACI
We have enjoyed working for you for over 40 years and are excited to continue in 2022. In an effort to continue to meet and exceed expectations we have brought on new staff and expanded in several areas to be sure we can provide fast and reliable results on your projects. While Marion Almy continues to oversee projects and bring her expertise to bear, Maranda Kles is involved in running the day to day operations and working with Marion on project oversight.
Lee Hutchinson and Kim Irby are still overseeing our FDOT projects, while Beth Horvath and Chris Newman continue to lead reports for other clients. Jennifer Marshall is hard at work pulling together Teaming info and producing reports. Della Fahnestock has been expanding our graphics abilities and is working closely with our field crews to enhance our field to office data transmission. Savannah Young has been working with Kim on FDOT projects and they have been bringing our newest Architectural Historian, Madeline Westrom, up to speed. In addition to the day to day, Maranda has been heading up our bioarchaeology projects and overseeing some of the recent GPR surveys.
Jean Lammie has joined ACI as a senior archaeologist and will conduct research, oversee field work and write reports. Nelson Rodriguez will continue as a senior field archaeologist, but he is also joining our GIS team to assist in graphics research and preparation. We have added several crew chiefs, field crew, and GPS antennae so we are ready to tackle projects of all sizes. We have brought on an additional copy editor/ reviewer, Lance Schneider. Courtney Ferguson is now heading up the front office and lastly, Tom Crawford is still overseeing our financial department and we have brought on a new financial admin assistant, James Freeman, to help with contract management and invoicing.
All of us look forward to working with existing and new clients this year and beyond. Thank you for your support.
In 2021, ACI celebrated our 45th year as one of Florida's top cultural resource management firms. In December, we hosted a diverse, fun-loving, but fastidious Field Crew.
