15 - Introducing WGI Unleashed - Will Schnier, P.E. and Matthew Stewart, P.E

Episode 015 - Introducing WGI Unleashed - Will Schnier, P.E. and Matthew Stewart, P.E We're Back! In this episode, we speak with Will Schnier and Matthew Stewart about the recent news - BIG RED DOG and WGI have joined forces to create an engineering and professional services firm of the future! The discussion covers the similarities between the two companies' cultures and services, and the opportunities that the additional resources will immediately provide for our team members and clients. We also discuss how WGI will help shape the future of our smart and connected cities. Will says, "The combination is like throwing gasoline on a fire. The net effect for our clients is that they will have a wider range of services that we can offer, and we're able to provide more resources to our clients in a resource-starved market. Ultimately it creates a more stable footprint, a more stable firm, which everyone can benefit from." Matt adds, "The opportunity for our team members is what really gets me jazzed up. This opportunity with WGI, for our team members is huge, and I can't emphasize that enough."  ---  You can learn more about Will and Matthew and connect with them through their social media: LinkedIn –  Listen to WGI Unleashed on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you download podcasts!
