We are pleased to announce that RVi is expanding outside of Texas for the first time, with fully staffed offices in Oakland and Phoenix.  The expansion advances our plan for sustainable growth and is made possible through an equity investment by national consulting firm Atwell, LLC.

“We are incredibly excited to join forces with Atwell, a company that shares our vision for smart, sustainable growth.  This partnership will expand our capabilities, provide new professional growth opportunities for our employees and allow us to better serve our clients,” said RVi President Chris Crawford.

RVi currently operates offices in Austin, Houston and Dallas; this investment expands its offices from three to five and allows the firm to better serve clients in the western United States.  It also allows Atwell to offer clients world-class planning and landscape architectural design services.

“With Atwell as a business partner, RVi is now poised to accelerate our growth on a national scale.  We are continuing to look for opportunities to enter new markets across the United States,” said RVi CEO Bob Richardson.

RVi’s name and existing leadership team will remain in place, maintaining day-to-day operations.  The Phoenix and Oakland offices, formerly Atwell-owned Golden Associates offices, will become part of and managed by RVi.

“We chose to invest in RVi because we respect what the company’s leadership has built over the past three-and-a-half decades,” said Atwell President and CEO Brian R. Wenzel.  “RVi is a very well-managed company, and together, we are poised to achieve even greater success on a national scale.”
