HRG Announces New Strategic Management & Capital Solutions Group

Herbert, Rowland & Grubic, Inc. (HRG) announced a new Strategic Management & Capital Solutions division today. The group will offer a broad range of financial, management, and strategic planning services to municipalities and municipal authorities.

HRG has been helping clients fund their projects and develop long-range capital plans for many years. They are a recognized expert in structuring municipal authorities, calculating the cost of service, and determining their value. Now the firm will expand its service offerings related to revenue generation, operational streamlining, technology solutions, and organization management planning.

Adrienne Vicari, the Strategic Management & Capital Solutions practice area leader, says, “The role of municipal and authority managers is becoming more complex every day, and they need a broad range of expertise to help them make decisions. As a trusted partner to more than 100 municipalities, we have been assisting with many of these decisions already, but now we’re formalizing our commitment and bringing on the brightest minds to guide them.”

Indeed, HRG has hired two accomplished former municipal managers to play a leading role in this group: Bob Grimm and Adam Hartwig. Grimm has more than 40 years of experience in municipal public service, primarily in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. He began his career assisting the city engineer in Oil City, Pennsylvania, then served as city planner for two years in Fairmont, West Virginia. Over the next 10 years, he acquired increasing responsibility before returning to the Pittsburgh area and joining Beaver Falls as a city manager in 1996. Since then, Grimm has held a similar position in North Fayette Township and the Town of McCandless.

Hartwig is a former manager of Middlesex Township with more than 10 years of experience in local government. He began his career in the management of sewer authorities, where he handled administrative duties, oversaw daily operations of the wastewater treatment plant, and performed rate and budget analyses. He then transitioned to the role of municipal manager, overseeing the day-to-day operations of a growing township where his duties included overseeing their police and public works department.

They’ll be working with a team of planners, program managers, engineers, and financial strategists to develop solutions that consider the community and its long-term needs as a whole.

The firm was founded in Harrisburg in 1962 and has grown to employ more than 250 people in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. They have an office at 207 Grant Street Street in Chambersburg.
