The combined Rotary Clubs of Lincoln honored Olsson Associates at the 2018 “Salute to Business” luncheon April 17.
Olsson Associates was recognized for its innovation and contributions to the Lincoln community. More than 500 people, including Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts and Lincoln Mayor Chris Beutler, gathered at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel for the 26th annual event.
Established in Lincoln in 1956, Olsson has 1,100 employees in nearly 30 offices across the Midwest and Southwest U.S. The firm offers comprehensive design and consulting services in infrastructure, environmental, field services and facilities to clients across the United States.
