Our Client’s Challenge

Our client is a civil engineering firm that provides engineering solutions and services focused on building and enhancing our nation’s transportation infrastructure. A few years ago, they acquired another firm and are now aiming for aggressive growth. Our client has an excellent reputation and has also attracted strong talent, but they needed more leadership structure to pave the way for future growth.

The company had been working with another staffing firm but was frustrated. They needed to fill many engineering, management, and operational positions to position themselves for future expansion.
