What path brought you to Wedgewood Building Company?
In 1998, I was a partner in a large architectural engineering practice (I am a registered architect). But, I became disenchanted with the lack of “real” client engagement in a large practice and decided to make a move. I’ve been part of the senior team at Wedgewood ever since.
