Meet Dave Rommelmann

Written by Stephen Knapp on .

If David Rommelmann has accomplished some very big things, he credits at least part of his success to starting small.

“I grew up in Ferrin, a little farming community in Illinois,” says Rommelmann, his Southview Drive office decorated with the achievements of a lifetime. “It had about 30 people then, and I think it has about 30 people now. When you come from such a small place, you learn to do things for yourself, not ask someone else to do things for you.”

Rommelmann graduated from a one-room schoolhouse to the University of Missouri at Rolla, and in 1970 graduated with a civil engineering degree. Instead of immediately setting out to find a civilian job, he deferred on the grounds that a government gig was about to find him.

“I had lottery No. 36, and that told me what I was going to do after college,” he says. “Vietnam was such a mess I decided to go in, get it over with, and get on with my career.”
