Our company is a place where ideas people thrive. Here are some of the stories of some of the smart people who joined our team and defined their own paths to success. Meet some of them.
Associate Principal | Denver
From CAD to Running an Office
STARTING AT ENTRY LEVEL AND WORKING UP…
I started in WB’s CAD department – and I volunteered to take on design work, in every department – every chance that I got. As WB grew, I was able to move up from CAD, to engineer, to project manager and to now leading WB’s Denver office.
TEN YEARS IS A LONG TIME AT ONE FIRM, WHAT HAS KEPT YOU HERE?
The company’s culture is such that I could build my career in my own way and take on as much responsibility as I could manage. That’s rare for an employer, and awesome for an employee…it’s the WB way.
THOUGHTS ON HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL AT WB?
Something that I learned early on at WB was that even if you’re an engineer, you have to be as comfortable talking to clients about the system that you designed as you are designing it. Be knowledgeable and be responsive.
Associate | Corporate
I work on the financial side of projects, or as I like to put it, on ‘the stuff that makes projects come alive.’ I spend my time helping our project managers and our clients, which means a lot of time on the phone. A client once said thanked me for keeping the lines of communication open with him – that was a great compliment. It’s what I try to do all the time.
I spent 23 years at a firm before moving to WB. What struck me immediately about the culture here – and what is really special about this place – is what I call ‘radical hospitality.’ It isn’t about who can shine the brightest, it is really about how can we work together to get stuff done.
SUCCESS IS ABOUT FUN
I always try to sprinkle a little humor into my work, because time flies if you are having fun or not, so why not have fun!
