Farshad Kassiri is known for his forward thinking, and his willingness to embrace new technologies to the benefit of Kibart’s clients. With each project, he digs deep into the details and sets in motion Kibart’s proven processes with his dynamic and innovative approach. Farshad embodies Kibart’s philosophy of remaining visionary, yet practical.
As the Chief Mechanical Engineer of Kibart, Farshad directs the day-to-day operations of the Mechanical Department, as well as long-term strategic planning and the implementation of those plans. Farshad takes an active role in the training and retention of bright, new talent. He also coordinates structured knowledge-sharing seminars for engineers at every level, which can be led by Kibart’s in-house engineers, its vendors or its manufacturing partners.
These are exciting times for our industry. Project owners are ready to embrace technologies they weren’t ready to accept previously: geothermal, solar, variable refrigerant systems, condensing boilers and frictionless chillers. Now, project owners understand the long-term benefits of these innovations, and Kibart is ready, able and excited to deliver.
In 1989, Farshad joined Kibart as a Mechanical Design Engineer, and two years later he was promoted to Project Engineer and then Project Manager. In 2001, Farshad was named Vice President when he, Ed Abbott, David Fuller and Mike Ford purchased the firm from its original owners.
Farshad graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. He is licensed to practice engineering in the states of Maryland and Virginia.
