Carlos Femmer has been promoted to president of Lafayette-based John Chance Land Surveys. Femmer succeeds Jimmie Stoute, who is retiring after a 34-year career with the company.
“Carlos has built a remarkable track record of commercial and strategic accomplishments,” Stoute said of his replacement. “He has proven to be a trusted leader and has a knack for inspiring teams. His promotion to president is characteristic of the leadership bench we have developed at Fugro [John Chance’s parent company], and I could not be more pleased with his promotion to this critical position.”
Femmer has been with Fugro Chance for 13 years. He began as a senior systems engineer in 2002, then joined subsidiary John Chance Land Surveys in 2006. As an IDS manager, vice president and COO, he oversaw various aspects of development, innovation, operations and strategic endeavors across the land survey and airborne divisions. He also currently serves as the global geospatial pipeline vertical leader supporting Fugro clients and colleagues in Europe and Australia.
Femmer, who is bilingual English and Spanish, received a bachelor’s degree in management information systems from the University of Massachusetts and has an MBA from LSU. He is also a graduate of the Fugro Academy Executive/Leadership Development Program in the Netherlands. As a lifelong resident of Lafayette, he remains active in the community and currently is a board member with the INAA Foundation.
