Evan Souliere, PE
Partner / Treasurer
Evan has been interested in engineering since an early age, and, more specifically, fascinated by the engineering of amusement attractions since before his teenage years. He spent his summers during high school working at Six Flags New England, working his way into a seasonal management position, in which he became responsible for the overall operation of seven major amusement rides and roller coasters.
In 2004, Evan started in a five-year cooperative education program in the Civil Engineering
department at Northeastern University. His first co-op was spent in 2006 at Simpson, Gumpertz, and Heger, Inc, an internationally-renowned consulting engineering firm. In 2007, Evan began a co-op with Great Coasters International, Inc., one of just a handful of designers and manufacturers of wooden roller coasters in the world. For the next two years, Evan alternated between working for Great Coasters and taking classes at Northeastern.
His role at Great Coasters consisted of aiding the two full-time engineers with any and every task needed to design and create drawings for new roller coaster installations and improvements to existing wooden roller coasters. This included work on foundations, structures, buildings, ride dynamics, and mechanical systems.
Upon graduation from Northeastern in 2009, Evan was hired full-time by Great Coasters, where his role was similar to that during his co-op, although his responsibilities and ability to make decisions increased. Over the next several years, the workforce in the engineering office increased, and Evan began to take on a supervisory role. He moved into a senior engineer position in 2013, which is the same year he applied for, qualified, and passed an exam to be certified as a Professional Engineer.
In 2014, Evan transitioned out of his role at Great Coasters and joined three colleagues to form Skyline Attractions, LLC. He brings with him his engineering skills, organization, familiarity with networks and computer systems, and competence in decision making.
