Management Team





Mr. Clark has been a Registered Professional Land Surveyor (RPLS) since 1986. He began his surveying career in 1980, where his early experience was primarily in surveying related to the oil and gas industry and later became involved in surveying services associated with civil engineers and architects. 

Mr. Clark’s workload is associated with commercial development projects, particularly where surveying services involving topography surveys, earthwork quantities, land title surveys, land descriptions and record or final plats are needed. As with all employees of Summit Surveying, Inc., his primary goal is customer satisfaction in regard to product quality and delivery schedule.




Mr. Nixon is a Registered Professional Land Surveyor (RPLS) in the State of Texas. Over the years, he has developed superior supervisory skills in regard to the field crew personnel, technical expertise in field operations and office production, and an effective working relationship with clients associated with large commercial and retail development.

A significant aspect of Mr. Nixon’s experience is his involvement with transportation projects for TxDOT. Mr. Nixon is the designated Project Manager on TxDOT projects. He has developed a good working relationship with TxDOT employees and with contracted design engineers associated with the surveying services provided by Summit Surveying, Inc., on transportation projects. He is very knowledgeable about client requirements and expectations. This has been a key factor in a relationship with TxDOT, which started in 1986.
