RQAW | DCCM Announces Lisa Casler as Company President


RQAW I DCCM, an architecture and engineering firm located in Fishers, Indiana has announced Lisa Casler, PE as the new RQAW | DCCM President, effective February 2024. This marks a pivotal moment in the firm’s trajectory following its acquisition by DCCM, an infrastructure design firm headquartered in Houston, Texas.

Founded in 1954, RQAW I DCCM has established itself as a leader in the industry over the last 70 years, providing exceptional service and helping their clients build thriving communities. Acquired by DCCM in 2022, this partnership has allowed RQAW to expand its reach and enhance its capabilities through DCCM’s diverse divisions throughout the United States.

As a graduate of Purdue University and resident of Hamilton County, Casler has over 27 years of experience in the transportation engineering industry. She began her career in 1997 at the Indiana Department of Transportation, going on to work for an Indianapolis-based engineering firm for 12 years. Since joining RQAW in 2016, Casler has made significant contributions to the company’s success. She has excelled in her roles of Director of Roadway Services and, most recently, Division Director of Transportation, where she was responsible for overseeing the delivery of all transportation projects and services across seven departments. Her commitment to excellence and ability to lead has been instrumental in advancing the goals of the company.

Troy Woodruff, former President and continuing Chief Executive Officer of RQAW I DCCM expressed unwavering confidence in the direction of the company, stating, “Lisa is a recognized industry leader in the A&E world and the ideal person to lead RQAW’s next chapter of growth and success. Her strong leadership prepares RQAW well into the future to better serve both our clients and employees. She not only earned this promotion, she is ready for this promotion.”

James F. (Jim) Thompson, DCCM Chairman and CEO, also expressed his enthusiasm for Lisa’s appointment, stating, “Lisa’s leadership exemplifies the principles we value at DCCM. Her tenacity and drive are the same qualities that define DCCM’s success, and her strategic vision will undoubtedly propel our company to new heights.”

As the first female President of RQAW, Casler will offer a fresh and unique perspective as a woman in a traditionally male-dominated industry. “I look forward to the challenge of shifting my focus from strictly transportation to the company’s overall bigger picture. Being a part of DCCM has given RQAW the tremendous opportunity to become a national presence while still nurturing our local client relationships, and I am committed to preserving the reputation we have built over the last seven decades. The future of RQAW I DCCM is very bright, and I appreciate the opportunity to lead this incredible team.”
