George Wray Thomas

George Wray "Terry" Thomas, P.E., P.P., R.A.

Founder and Principal

Born George Wray Thomas III, Terry Thomas is the founder and principal of our firm. His nickname was inspired by his mother’s fondness for Latin. The word tertius—meaning "three" gave him the nickname "Terry". Perhaps that unique moniker motivated him to achieve licenses in all three essential professions: engineering, planning and architecture—an unusual accomplishment among his peers. As the creative leader of our company Terry brings remarkable insight, inspiration and experience to everything we do.
