Civil Engineering and Construction Services

Prior to entering the career of executive search I spent 30 years in financial services managing investment portfolios for a variety of individual and institutional accounts. I am a graduate of Vanderbilt University. I specialize in recruiting exclusively within the Engineering and Architecture disciplines
. As a result, I am constantly aware of potential job opportunities. By combining my experience and expertise with the numerous resources available as part of the Management Recruiters International, Inc. network, I am confident that I will be able to deliver to you that employment opportunity that meets your specific career goals.

The greatest satisfaction I have in my career at MRI is the ability to help someone make a positive change in their professional career. Developing a mutual relationship to further your career path is very important to me, and I will certainly keep in touch with you to address your needs as they arise.

Life is full of opportunities. The challenge is to identify that “best” opportunity among the myriad opportunities. It’s like finding the one choice pearl in a thousand oyster shells. Once the opportunity has been qualified and selected as "the best", then it is my goal to give you my best to help you achieve it. Never discount your capabilities, because in doing so, your efforts will create lower-level results, rather than top-level results and accomplishments.

I recruit for permanent, contract, and major project opportunities by uncovering top talent for specialized searches within the Civil Engineering Services industry.

Positions I recruit for Professional Engineers in Land Development, Water and Waste Water services, Transportation Engineers and Geotechnical Professionals.

My philosophy is that it does not matter what the product is the process of recruiting is still the same. What do you sell, who do you sell it to, how good are you at it and can you back it up.

Prior to beginning a career in executive search, I spent eighteen years in the electronics and computer industry as a Sales and Operations Manager for a major manufacturer. With my education, BBA from the University of Houston and advanced MBA coursework at the Louisiana State University, I felt well positioned to accomplish my goals in a fast paced business environment.

Matching the right talent for the right oppotunity is imperative in our profession. My role is to help make the right choices in order to have the individual and the client company to grow exponentially.
