Staff


Solka Nava Torno, LLC is large enough to accomplish the design of a complex development, yet small enough to allow each partner to take an active role in the many details of managing a successful project.  We take pride in the diverse capabilities and talents of our staff.  While management of the firm's commissions is always maintained by the Firm's principals, our staff members are encouraged to assume new and greater responsibilities.  We continually strive to maintain a working environment which rewards and encourages innovation, creative enthusiasm, and professional development.  Our staff is also encouraged to be involved in the Corpus Christi community; through professional societies, church and civic volunteer opportunities.
