John Littlefield


Owner & President

John began his career at Southwest Engineers when he was barely 16. As he matured in the field of engineering and attended The University of Texas at Austin, John began to apply his education and experience to lead, grow and manage the Southwest Engineers team of experts in sustainable engineering practices. Now a veteran at the firm, John’s main priority is to keep the same high standard of client service he witnessed from his father and continue to grow the company with future-focused design.

John specializes in strategically structuring the firm to serve new and existing clients and offer expert advice on Texas land and sustainable development.
