LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Luckett & Farley has named Ben Stollerman to lead its Government Studio, serving the federal government and Department of Defense across the country.

Stollerman is a Navy reserve officer with deep experience in military design, construction and project planning. As market director, he will guide a multi-discipline team of architects, engineers and interior designers that provides design, planning, and construction administration services to the Department of Defense and other federal agencies, as well as private industry partners.

Luckett & Farley’s Government Studio has more than 40 years of experience serving the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, the Air Force Civil Engineer Center, and other DoD and federal government agencies.

“Our government clients — especially the military branches — expect their design and engineering partners to understand the specific challenges and needs of their facilities, services and personnel. Ben’s proven experience in solving real-life challenges for the Navy, and at Luckett & Farley where he has overseen a range of significant projects as a senior project manager, brings immediate credibility and trust to our government clients,” said Aric Andrew, president and CEO of Luckett & Farley. “His dedication to understanding and serving his clients is evident to everyone who works with him. Ben is the perfect person to lead our Government Studio.”

While on active duty as an Officer in the Navy’s Civil Engineer Corps, Stollerman served in various leadership roles with Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) and the Seabees, the Navy’s Construction Force. His many accomplishments in the service include designing engineering improvements and leading construction efforts for a 50,000 displaced-persons camp in Port-au-Prince, Haiti following the devastating 2010 earthquake, and leading NAVFAC’s Contingency Engineering and Construction efforts across Europe and Africa.

Stollerman has a B.S. in civil and environmental engineering from the University of Utah and an MBA from Oklahoma State University. He is a licensed professional engineer and project management professional.

Stollerman joined Luckett & Farley in 2017 and previously served as senior project manager before transitioning into this new role in September 2019. He succeeds Don Vanbogaert who retired from Luckett & Farley in April after 40 years of outstanding service to our federal government partners.
