Stroud Pence Rebrands As Lynch Mykins
April 7, 2017

Stroud Pence, one of the leading mid-Atlantic structural engineering firms, has recently rebranded as Lynch Mykins. The firm’s new name follows the retirement of its founders, Roger Stroud and Ed Pence, and a recent ownership transition to company executives Anna Lynch, P.E. and David Mykins, P.E. Anna Lynch, located in Raleigh, will serve as CEO, and David Mykins, located in the firm’s Virginia Beach, Virginia office, will be president.

Lynch joined Stroud Pence in 2003 and was named Raleigh managing director in 2011. As managing director, she introduced a renewed vision and strategic plan, which has resulted in the firms’ significant growth. Mykins joined the firm in 1986 and was named president in 2013. In his role, he has been responsible for leading the firm, including through its first-generation ownership transition.

Both Lynch and Mykins have led prominent projects across both North Carolina and Virginia. Lynch was the structural engineer of record for the polar bear exhibit expansion at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, North Carolina, the East Carolina University Health Sciences Student Center in Greenville, North Carolina and a new 70,000-square-foot dormitory at Duke University. Mykins has led many projects across Virginia as the structural engineer of record, including the restoration of the 117,500-square-foot historic Cavalier Hotel and the 89,500-square-foot Tidewater Community College Student Center, both in Virginia Beach.

“With a clear vision, commitment to hard work and a strong dedication to client service excellence, Anna has led our Raleigh operation to become a beacon of growth for our entire firm,” said Mykins. “The success that our Raleigh office has realized during the last five years sets a benchmark of what we can achieve as a firm moving forward.”

“The growth opportunities for the mid-Atlantic region are robust and full of promise for Lynch Mykins,” said Lynch. “Building upon Stroud Pence’s 43-year reputation for structural engineering excellence, we will aspire to achieve new milestones as a firm that is known for its creative thinking and collaborative approach. I am very excited to embark on this new journey with the Lynch Mykins team.”

Lynch Mykins will continue to unveil its new brand throughout 2017.
