Brian J. David

Principal, Director of Operations

Brian David believes that engineering goes beyond a well-designed building. It’s a way to serve people at every stage of their lives.

Brian heads up Karpinski’s education and corporate sectors, building relationships and advising project teams. His most important role on projects? Bringing them in! Then setting the team up for success and letting them get to work.

For Brian, being a leader means helping develop future leaders, and he’s involved with staff mentoring and career planning. He is also deeply involved in firm operations, from human resources to business development to administration.
