Lu Engineers President, Robert Hutteman, to receive the ACEC National Community Service award for his contributions to his community.

Rochester, NY – October 6, 2011 – Robert Hutteman, president of Lu Engineers, in Pittsford, N.Y., will receive the 2011 National Community Service Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) at the upcoming ACEC Fall Conference in Las Vegas on October 21.

The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) is the business association of America’s engineering industry, representing more than 5,000 independent engineering companies throughout the United States engaged in the development of America’s transportation, environmental, industrial, and other infrastructure. The award recognizes a principal or manager of an ACEC member firm who has made a significant contribution to the quality of life in his or her community. A single candidate is chosen by local ACEC chapters to represent their state and up to five candidates are nationally selected to receive this prestigious award each year. This year only three members will receive the award one which is Robert Hutteman for his community service work in Wayne and Monroe Counties.

When asked about the award, Mr. Hutteman (third from left in the photo) humbly stated “I appreciate the recognition however I hope that the attention this award receives inspires other professionals to be more involved in their community.” He goes on to talk about how a large portion of leadership involves influencing the next generation. “Leadership is much more than guidance. Although setting a clear direction is critical for leadership, leading by example and inspiring the next generation of leaders will do more for our communities in the long run.”

Robert serves as chairman of the Town of Arcadia Planning Board; a board member of the Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority; vice chairman of the Western Finger Lakes Solid Waste Authority; a trustee for the Newark Wayne Community Hospital; a member of the facilities committee for the Newark Wayne Community Hospital; chairman of the Saint Michael School Advisory Committee; and is active in both the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.

As a husband, father of four, and president of Lu Engineers, Mr. Hutteman manages to find time to serve his community. When asked about finding time for community service Bob said “Community service is about making sacrifices in which time is our most valuable commodity. I attribute this award to the support I receive from my wife and children. They know the sacrifices they make allow me to do what will benefit not only our family’s future, but the future of the families that make up our community.”
