JUL 31, 2013: Crawford, Murphy & Tilly, Inc.

The mid-sized firm has earned their place on the list by forming long-term relationships with a deep and diverse roster of airport clients.

“Although we do work at major airports like Chicago O’Hare and Midway, Lambert -St. Louis and Washington Reagan and Dulles, we’ve built our business by offering that same type of world-class service to all sizes of commercial service and general aviation airports throughout the Midwest,” said Dan Meckes, CMT president and CEO. CMT has 70 aviation professionals on staff who provide airports with a wide range of services including project management, planning, and design and construction engineering.

“Our aviation unit is rare in the industry in that we bring the capabilities of a large firm, but the personal touch of a smaller firm. Our employees tend to stick around so our airport clients really get to know and trust the people who are working for them,” Meckes said. In addition to the top 25 ranking, the firm was the 2013 recipient of the Corporate Cup of Excellence Award from the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE). The award recognizes the contributions and improvements that CMT has made to the airport industry over the years.
