Anser Advisory Announces RLH Engineering Acquisition, Expanding Market Expertise & Geographic Coverage in Colorado

Anser Advisory, ranked 14 in ENR’s 2022 Top 50 Program Management Firms, 2nd on the Zweig AE Fastest Growing Hot List for 2022, and a certified Great Places to Work organization, has announced the acquisition of RLH Engineering, Inc. (RLH).

RLH is an owner’s representative, project management, and environmental consulting firm serving Colorado, with an office located one hour north of Denver in Windsor, CO. Both firms have shared values and beliefs, and both are committed to developing and maintaining long-standing client relationships. By leveraging the combined expertise of the Anser Advisory and RLH teams, the combined firm will provide additional value to clients in the region, as well as across the country.

RLH expands Anser Advisory’s ability to serve clients in the Northern Colorado area and positions the firm for additional growth across Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region in the areas of K-12, healthcare, and municipal markets, including police and fire protection facilities. RLH also brings subject matter expertise in environmental consulting that Anser Advisory will leverage to enhance client support nationwide. Clients of both firms will experience no change in personnel as a result of this merger.

Bryan Carruthers, CEO of Anser Advisory, noted, “we have a successful track record partnering with RLH to deliver valued solutions and positive outcomes to our shared clients, and we have always held mutual respect. With the talented RLH professionals now part of the Anser Advisory team, we will be able to collectively expand our collaboration, provide additional expertise and support to Anser Advisory and RLH clients nationwide, and continue growing our firm’s footprint and service to communities throughout Colorado and the greater Rocky Mountain region.”

“We are excited to join the Anser Advisory team. We have partnered with Anser Advisory to successfully deliver projects for past and current clients in Colorado and this merger is an expansion of that successful collaboration. Together we offer our collective clients a broader set of service capabilities and access to better resources than ever before, while also creating new and fulfilling growth opportunities for our team members,” said Jeff Chamberlin, RLH President.
