Keith Cullum, LEED, P.E. Keith is a Structural Engineer at Simpson Strong-Tie’s McKinney, TX branch covering the Southeast region of the US where his primary responsibilities include product testing, technical support, education and training, and post-disaster assessment. After graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in Architectural Engineering, he worked for a consulting firm in Southern California designing multi- and single-family residential structures out of cold-formed steel and wood. Prior to joining Simpson Strong-Tie in 2012, he worked for a steel deck manufacturer performing R&D and providing product technical support and promotion. He is a LEED Accredited Professional (AP) and a registered Professional Engineer in eight states (AL, AR, CA, KS, MO, MS, TX, and OK).
Dr. Roger A. LaBoube Roger is Curator’s Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering and Director of the Wei-Wen Yu Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures at the Missouri University of Science & Technology (formerly University of Missouri-Rolla). Dr. LaBoube holds B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla. Dr. LaBoube has an extensive background in the design and behavior of cold-formed steel structures. His research and design activities have touched on many facets of cold-formed steel construction to include: cold-formed steel beams, panels, trusses, headers, wall studs as well as bolt, weld, and screw connections. Dr. LaBoube is active in several professional organizations and societies, including a member of the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI), American Iron and Steel Institute’s Committee on Specifications for the North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members and chairperson of the AISI Committee on Framing Standards.
