Why did you choose Walter P Moore?
I’d worked with architects, public works agencies, and developers. WPM’s focusing on the client manifests in an interesting way. I’m not expected to pursue only certain industries or segments of the market. I’m free to serve any client that values our services.
Who or what inspires you?
My grandfather, Clyde Fields, died age 100. …a Kansas farmer and cattleman, his life was full of hard times and hard work. …he showed that while you can’t always control the things that happen to you, you can control how you react to them.
What gives you the most satisfaction in your work?
…my relationship with clients. …the feeling I get when I am working on a project with a client that values what we bring and wants to have our involvement on every project, makes this job truly satisfying.
In a word, what should your co-workers expect of you?
Our brand is providing high quality service and all that entails: Creative solutions, timely delivery, responsiveness, and placing the client’s needs ahead of our own.
