Schoel, a civil engineering firm that has been in operation since 1888, has promoted Walter Schoel III to chief executive officer, Taylor Schoel to president and Brooks Schoel to chief financial officer. 

In addition, the company has appointed James Parsons to chief operating officer and Jake Bonds to senior vice president and director of land surveying. Joey Breighner and Jerry Cargile will serve on the board of directors.

“Schoel has thrived for nearly 135 years because of the talent and passion of our people. Our leadership evolution will further that tradition of excellence and lead the company toward continued success,” said Walter Schoel III, who formerly served as president.

A member of the Alabama Engineering Hall of Fame, Schoel specializes in civil engineering site design, landscape architecture, land surveying, environmental, water resources, utility infrastructure, 3D modeling and high-definition surveying services.
