Atlanta, GA (February 2016): Integral Engineering Group Managing Principal, Stanton Stafford has been recognized as 2015’s Top 40 Under 40 by the Atlanta Business Chronicle for both his professional achievements as well as his ongoing contributions to the community. With over 600+ nominees, the Chronicle had the challenging task of narrowing the list down to the top 40 business leaders who are stewards in their respective industries and have made significant strides positively impacting society.
“Integral is extremely proud of Stanton,” notes CEO and Founder, Kevin Hydes, PE, P.Eng, C.Eng, RAIC (hon), FCIBSE, LEED Fellow. “This honor is well deserved and a clear reflection how respected Stanton is within the community for his dedication and commitment to improving the built environment,” continued Kevin.

After hours, Stanton continues to cultivate his passion for the community development and environmental responsibility through his role as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Lifecycle Building Centre of Greater Atlanta.
