Why I Work at Wilson Ihrig

“I have worked for many firms in the A/E/C industry, and Wilson Ihrig is a breed unto itself, which I believe accounts for why people stay with the firm so long (their last Marketing Manager retired after 32 years!). The combination of integrity, fairness, likeability and enthusiasm for the work they do sets them apart from so many of the other firms in the industry. They appreciate and rely on the professional expertise I bring to their marketing and business development efforts, and support my outside industry organization participation as well.”
