I’m pleased to announce Curtis Grannan as our July employee of the month!
We asked Curtis a few questions about himself so you could get to know him better.
What are your roles and responsibilities at Wessler Engineering?
I am a designer in the drinking water group. I take information from our clients, manufacturers and engineers here at Wessler and try to put all the information into a clear and concise set of plans.
Name three things you can guarantee each client of ours no matter how big or small the project is?
1. We will ask questions and listen to what the clients have to tell us
2. We will be attentive to your needs
3. We will research the best solution to your problem.
What’s the most important lesson you have learned over the last year?
I have had many people here at Wessler and in my personal life tell me not to take things so hard and to not be so hard on myself. I think it is starting to sink in just a little.
What's your favorite "Wessler Day of Giving" event and why?
I enjoy doing our Gleaners Day of Giving every year. We get to interact with other firms and get to see some of the “regular” volunteers and hear their stories.
Tell us about the "Yellow Survey Van" from the early years at Wessler and share your best memory.
The best part of the old survey van was being in the welded third seat in the cargo area. We would always try to dump whoever was in the “suicide seat”. As an extra tidbit, the AM radio in the survey van was the best!
You've been at Wessler Engineering for over 30 years. What technological advancement has had the biggest impact within your profession?
The biggest changes I have seen are the Cadd drawing software we use now and the surveying equipment. Both of these are much better than drawing on the board and using 2 tapes to survey with.
What does the Wessler Way mean to you?
I have a motto “do it once and do it right”. I have learned that here at Wessler. We did it when I started and there were seven of us, and we do it now.
Rick Springfield and Jeff Gordon are drowning and you can save only one, who lives and why?
I saved this question for last. I would have to say after much thought that it would be Jeff Gordon. I have put lots of money into my Jeff Gordon room at home.
