His Lasting Legacy
After a courageous and hard-fought battle with complications related to the coronavirus, Calvin T. Ladner, PE, President of LJA Engineering, Inc., passed away on August 18, 2020. As a constant presence in the life of LJA for over 33 years (23 as President), the loss of our founder and leader will be profoundly felt by all who knew him.
Calvin fostered a deeply rooted sense of family; he mentored a culture where we can all thrive and be the best of ourselves; and most importantly, he leaves a legacy of immeasurable strength and success that we can proudly carry on.
A True LJA Leader
It is absolutely impossible to separate our President from our firm’s legacy, stability, and integrity. Native Texan Calvin T. Ladner, PE, was President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board of Directors of LJA Engineering, Inc.–one of the largest and most successful employee-owned, multi-discipline, civil engineering firms in the US. He loved our company and its people – employees and clients – with everything he had; and was a driving force of employee-ownership.
Fast Forward to 2019.
