Oklahoma City, Okla./Fort Worth, Texas — Freese and Nichols, Inc. is expanding its presence in Oklahoma by occupying a new office at 6303 North Portland Avenue in Oklahoma City.  The move enables the firm to foster growth opportunities and increase its services and overall investment in the state of Oklahoma.

Since opening its Oklahoma City office one year ago, Freese and Nichols has invested heavily in communities throughout the state by hosting brown bag discussions and conducting seminars that highlight strategies for combining innovative approaches, practical results and outstanding service with technical expertise. The company is further elevating its presence throughout the state by sponsoring trade conferences and delivering technical presentations.

In addition to its new office, Freese and Nichols is also expanding its Oklahoma-based team. Tricia (Trish) Hatley, P.E., a vice president and firm principal, serves as the Oklahoma Regional Manager. Jennifer Wasinger recently joined the firm’s Oklahoma City team as an account director, bringing over 20 years of experience working with state and municipal clients.

“The new office is strategically located to increase accessibility to our existing clients in Oklahoma, build upon our successes, and better position ourselves for future opportunities throughout the state and surrounding region,” said Robert F. Pence, president and CEO of Freese and Nichols. “Trish has provided invaluable leadership for the last 22 years in the Dallas-Fort Worth market. As an Oklahoma native and graduate of Oklahoma State University, she can now leverage her extensive contacts and relationships to grow the firm’s Oklahoma portfolio in water/wastewater, stormwater, transportation, and urban planning services.”

Freese and Nichols continues upon its strong presence in Oklahoma. In addition, the company currently has a number of ongoing projects across the state.
