Brian Anders, MS, PE

Founder/Professional Engineer

Before pursuing his engineering degree, Brian Anders worked as a full-time dockworker and switch operator for a local trucking company. The combination of this industry experience and the influence of a local private investigator piqued Brian's interest in accident reconstruction investigation.

His career as a professional engineer began over fifteen years ago. Since then, Brian has investigated hundreds of motor vehicle incidents nationwide. Brian applies his industry experience and advanced engineering education to understand complex motor vehicle collisions. His ability to convey highly technical material to non-technical audiences makes him an effective expert witness. The industry's mixture of investigation and client management is an excellent fit to Brian's interests and talents.

Brian's time away from DELTA [v] is spent with his family. Recently, Brian & his wife have enjoyed coaching their daughters' softball teams.
