Two Southeast Texas businesses have combined forces to provide clients with comprehensive services and decades of experience. Mark Whiteley & Associates LLC (“MWA”) has partnered with S. Oliver & Associates LLC (“SOA”) to form Whiteley Oliver LLC (“Whiteley Oliver”), a premier engineering, surveying and mapping business.
Whiteley Oliver, which will be the sole owner of each of MWA and SOA, will command a deep array of personnel and equipment to include over 50 survey personnel, 30 Damage Prevention Specialists, six Registered Professional Land Surveyors and two Professional Engineers. Whiteley Oliver will continue to build on MWA’s and SOA’s long-established reputations for integrity, safety, accountability and reliability, according to the new partners.
Whiteley Oliver will be led by a seasoned management team with over 65 years of combined experience. Jason Whiteley, the son of the late Mark Whiteley, who founded MWA in 1980, will serve as its CEO. Stan Oliver, the founder of SOA, will continue as the President of SOA and will serve as a Board Member for the new company. Tom Rowe, the longtime VP of MWA and its current President, will continue serve as the President of MWA and also serve as a Board Member of Whiteley Oliver.
“Stan Oliver is a giant in the surveying community of Southeast Texas. His focus on customer-service, attention to detail and an inclusive family culture is unparalleled. We have worked alongside and around Stan for decades and are thrilled to be partnering with him and his team. The new partnership will combine the historical strengths of SOA with the historical strengths of MWA to provide our clients with a robust platform that is ready, willing and able to offer state of the art solutions to their most demanding problems,” said Tom Rowe, President of Mark Whiteley & Associates LLC.
“We are excited to partner with Jason, Tom and the entire MWA team.
