Hatley named NSPE
Tricia Hatley, vice president and principal at Freese and Nichols, will be installed as president of the National Society of Professional Engineers on Saturday, Aug. 1.
Hatley has been a member of NSPE, engineering’s largest professional group, since graduating from Oklahoma State University with a
bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 1993.
“Working together is something engineers understand, as our project work is accomplished through teams,” Hatley said. “I’m excited about the year ahead, as we work together with our state societies to create a world where the public can be confident that the engineering decisions impacting their lives are made by qualified and ethically accountable professionals.”
Hatley is a native of Edmond. She has been Freese and Nichols’ Oklahoma division manager since 2015, overseeing offices in Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
“Freese and Nichols gave me the opportunity to lead their growing investment in our state, where we now have more than 30 employees,” Hatley said. “Leadership in our careers also enriches community life in the places we’re proud to call home. NSPE is committed to helping future engineers in schools and universities, through charitable organizations and through lifelong learning.”
