Gary James joined FSB’s professional team in 1992 and has performed virtually every task at the firm during his tenure, becoming CEO in 2010. Licensed in 17 states, he has designed complex engineering systems for iconic buildings in Oklahoma and across the United States. A 1985 graduate of the University of Oklahoma, with a degree in mechanical engineering, the wide variety of project types that Gary has been involved with have provided him with an unmatched understanding of FSB and the A/E business as a whole -- experience which greatly benefits FSB’s clients.

Gary also sets a company tone that encourages giving back to the community. He leads by example, lending his talents to a number of philanthropic projects.
