Quotes from the Episode:

“I’ll look back on as, you know, those are tough years, the first five years. But they’re, they’re great memories and launched the firm and created the foundation for what we are today.”

“I think our success got off to a good start because we brought big project experience and the understanding of how to deliver those along with the grit and the determination of a, a small practice that had to scrap to survive.”

“I’m also very proud of our client relationships–repeat clients, just the friendships. I’m proud to be their trusted advisor. I think it’s the work that we’ve done, whether it’s the Darwin Cove Convention Center in the Western territories of Australia, Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand, or our work for the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field.”
