Core Values


Our tight-knit team has been working together since 2013, fostering loyalty and accountability. At ProE, everyone is equal, with no job hierarchy. This empowers each team member to approach the day with dedication and confidence, supported from top to bottom.


Many people in our business are told, “You can have it fast, you can have it good, you can have it cheap: pick two.” Our response…why not all three? Our secret to success is lightning-fast response time. Thanks to our strong relationships with local government bodies, we provide unbeatable turnaround times. We keep a close eye on all projects and provide daily status updates to clients. Whether it's good or bad news, our team prides itself on immediate response and complete transparency. We understand that project expectations may need last-minute adjustments, but rest assured, we always fight for your best interests.


Our objective is simple: Listen. Analyze. Create. We thrive on clients who bring us projects with unique visions. Our task is to objectively transform these ideas into a cohesive, profitable reality. We strongly encourage our clients to involve us from the very beginning, like adding us to the recipe before you even turn on the oven! This way, we can identify and address any potential obstacles in advance.


When it comes to engineering, we've got it down. Seriously, we know our stuff! Don't fall into the trap of thinking, “bigger company, better engineering”. Our prior experience working under the larger corporate veil has provided us with a unique vantage point of seeing client expectations and common criticisms. In our industry, value engineering is key, and we offer it proactively, even before you ask for it! We understand that cash is king, so why spend a fortune before a shovel even hits the ground?

The team

IN NO SPECIFIC ORDER...HERE ARE Your future partners...

ProE Consulting Team - Steve Hobbs


Managing Director/Owner

Meet Steve, a Texan through and through! Hailing from Dallas, Steve now enjoys the thrill of life in Katy. After 19 years of wedded bliss with his lovely wife Kara, they have a trio of awesome kids who keep them on their toes.


Steve received his Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from the prestigious University of Texas at Austin. But wait, there's more! Back in the day, he rocked the football field as a walk-on place kicker and punter for the Longhorns, (Laces out!!). Beyond his professional accomplishments, Steve has been a Licensed Professional Engineer in Civil Engineering since 2010.

When he's not engineering or channeling his inner athlete, Steve finds joy in spending quality time with his family, volunteering, indulging in all things sports, camping adventures, and even whipping up some mouthwatering dishes in the kitchen. He's the life of the party, always ready to crack some jokes and bring a smile to any occasion.

Justin Schrader

Managing Director/Owner

Get ready to meet the one and only Justin, a native of Nederland, Texas, who now resides in the bustling city of Houston. With a mind-blowing partnership of 27 years and 16 years of marital bliss with his incredible wife, Kelly, Justin has truly found his lifelong teammate.


Armed with a Civil Engineering degree from the esteemed Texas A&M University, he's been a Licensed Professional Engineer since 2009. But here's the twist - amidst his love for family, traveling, game nights with friends, and yes, even work (who would've thought?), Justin harbors an undying passion for the '80s classic, Teen Witch. Not just any version, mind you, but the 1989 Robin Lively rendition that takes him on a nostalgic ride every time.


As one of the proud owners of PROE, Justin's wit, charm, and quirky movie preferences adds that extra sprinkle of magic to every project!

Aimee, a proud graduate of the University of Houston with a degree in Construction Management, has a few surprises up her sleeve. While she revels in spending time with her loved ones, hitting the gym, and perfecting her quilting skills, she also has an undeniable passion for all things feline. Yes, cats hold a special place in her heart, just like her knack for dominating board games and exploring breweries.


Aimee is not just a master of construction, she's a licensed cosmetologist and a certified SCUBA diver..."I shall call him Squishy, and he shall be mine!" Aimee's vivacious spirit, combined with her diverse talents, makes her a true force to be reckoned with.

Equipped with a BBA in Business Administration from Texas Southern University, she's got the skills to make deals, but that's not all! When she's not hustling, Kendra unleashes her inner artist through painting and indulges in beauty treatments that keep her looking fly.


But here's the kicker - in a previous life, she was a rapper! That's right, Kendra was part of the legendary Grahamie Award-winning group "Triple Play." Nobody can chase "Waterfalls" quite like Triple Play! So, drop that beat and watch Kendra bring the K-Pop magic. With her infectious energy and lyrical prowess, Kendra is here to make you move, groove, and keep the party rocking like it's 1999.
