Read Steven's bio as a rising professional below and the full article here.
After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 1999, Steve Krauskopf spent several years with a municipal civil engineering firm, and later, a large land development company.
Then, in 2006 at age 29, Krauskopf co-founded KFW Engineers with the goal of creating a workplace where employees never felt they had to leave for better opportunities—a company where every employee could have a long career and retire.
In 2008, he co-founded KFW Engineers’ sister company, KFW Surveying. Under Krauskopf’s leadership, KFW Engineers has seen revenue growth of 794% over the past five fiscal years.
Krauskopf’s company is contributing to the civil land development industry in San Antonio as well as leading the charge on new engineering techniques and technology. KFW was the first firm in the area to implement new water-quality engineering techniques at Edward’s Aquifer and one of the first to use new permeable pavement-detention and batch-detention technology.
Krauskopf is currently serving his second and final year as chairman of the San Antonio March of Dimes, where has been a board member for the past six years.
In 2015, he was also instrumental in one of KFW’s largest-ever donations, a $10,000 title sponsorship to the Texas A&M University Aggie BUILD Project, where A&M students constructed 12 medical clinics inside shipping containers that will be transported to Third World countries. - Louise Poirier
