As President of RMF and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Ken Pitz is responsible for the general oversight of the firm and executive management of its branch offices. Ken has served as COO and CFO and has been integral in helping formalize an understanding of how revenue flows into RMF, what business practices were most profitable, and how to optimize the firm’s future based on this data. Ken’s foresight to structure RMF’s specialty groups as separate business units positioned the firm to be successful in profitability, staff education and development, and financial efficiency.
Ken is a seasoned engineer who continues to take a hands-on role with major RMF projects. With expertise in comparative analysis and evaluation of large-scale system concepts, he continues to provide direction to the company’s infrastructure group.
Ken also enjoys the challenge of developing new business opportunities for the firm. Through new business, Ken applies his high level of market understanding, knowledge of client needs, the continuing development of new services, and great enthusiasm for opportunities. He is committed to RMF’s continued success by building on what the firm can become, rather than what the firm is today.
Ken joined RMF as a project engineer in 1989 and brought with him a business savvy and a set of ideas earned from spending seven years in a well-run heating and air conditioning distributorship. RMF was able to successfully apply some of this experience to improve its business practices. Ken’s early success on some of RMF’s large projects, earned him a promotion to the upper management team in 1998.
Ken holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Drexel University.
