[MUSIC PLAYING] BOB SCAER: One of the best decisions I ever made was answering one of those little bitty ads in the back of Civil Engineering News Magazine. I graduated from Purdue University in 1983 as a structural engineer. But with the diversity at Gannett Fleming, I found myself designing buildings. And eventually, I was designing caenary structures for transit.
PAUL NOWICKI: My story with Gannett Fleming isn’t really unique to Gannett Fleming, but it’s special. I started with Gannett Fleming in 1982 as an intern from the University of Detroit. And now, here in 2017, I will be the president of Gannett Fleming.
BOB SCAER: I’m very proud of our employees and the things that we do to serve our communities. We focus on sustainability, and we all support each other like family.
PAUL NOWICKI: Our most important asset is our employee.
BOB SCAER: We want our employees to think out of the box. It’s that kind of spirit is why our clients hire us to do very complex assignments.
PAUL NOWICKI: Our employees are what we provide to our clients. It’s about our intellectual capital.
BOB SCAER: We strive for thought leadership in everything we do.
PAUL NOWICKI: It’s not necessarily about being an engineer. It’s about how we work together.
BOB SCAER: What I’m passionate about while serving as CEO is that when I leave, Gannett Fleming will be in position for the next 100 years. I see our future as being more international and tapping those engineering minds and engineering issues that exist around the world. All of this will make us a stronger company.
