In April, HP Engineering, Inc. announced that its Vice President and Regional Engineering Director Dr. Andrew Mock, PhD, PE, SE, was selected as a 2023 Oklahoma Magazine 40 Under 40 honoree for his contributions as a leader in the architecture, engineering and construction industry. Each year, Oklahoma Magazine showcases the best movers and shakers the state has to offer in all fields of business that have the shared goal of improving Oklahoma.
“I am humbled to be recognized alongside so many other talented individuals,” Mock said. “HP Engineering has allowed me to flourish and grow as a leader. I am so proud of the work we accomplish for our clients and the positive force we create in the world around us.”
Mock graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering and the University of Illinois with a PhD and Master of Science in Civil Engineering. He was a National Science Foundation Graduate Worldwide Fellow and received OSU’s Dean’s Award for Outstanding Graduate from the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology.
Mock has been instrumental in creating HP Engineering’s new structural division. Based on his projects’ success, he has doubled his team size and taken on many high-profile structural projects across the United States. His professional experience includes commercial, education, entertainment, healthcare, hospitality, industrial, infrastructure, mixed-use and multi-family sectors. Through these experiences, Mock provides technical leadership in analyzing, designing and constructing commercial structures in steel, reinforced masonry, structural concrete, cold-formed metal framing and wood.
Mock leads operations for the Oklahoma City office outside of his structural engineering duties. He has been responsible for business development, employee morale and company culture.
Mock has earned a reputation as a calm and confident leader. He brings a unique perspective to the AEC industry and is frequently sought out for his knowledge due to his involvement with the American Society of Civil Engineers. Andrew is an active member of the ASCE’s Committee for Preparing the Future Civil Engineer.
Mock is a proud member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation and has great respect and pride for his heritage. Growing up, he participated in the Johnson O’Malley Indian Education Program where he learned to do various forms of artwork, including basket weaving, beadwork, painting, leatherwork and music. During college, he participated in the Oklahoma Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation. This program prepared him for presenting at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research and supported him while applying to graduate schools. Mock continues to volunteer for the organization and now serves as a judge for the undergraduate research conference. In 2023, he was accepted into the Leadership Native Oklahoma program through the American Indian Chamber of Commerce.
“As soon as we hired Andrew, we knew he would accomplish great things,” said David Adams, President of HP Engineering. “Being named among the 40 Under 40 is a testament to his exceptionalism and reflects his tireless dedication, unwavering determination and remarkable achievements. Andrew is a shining example of what can be accomplished with passion, hard work and a relentless pursuit of excellence. He is truly a force to be reckoned with, and his impact on the world will continue to inspire for generations to come. We are excited that he has been honored with this recognition.”
