Our Inaugural Blog Post from Our President Kip Hanzlicek

Welcome to our blog launch. In my 30 years in the MEP engineering business, I’ve learned to surround myself with people that know what I don’t. So I’d like to personally thank Camille Barton, Ruth Hunter-Hill and Brandon Jarrett for spearheading this launch. They told me, “Glad you finally joined us in the 21st Century!”

Purdy-McGuire’s multigenerational employee mix is indicative of what’s happening in the AEC industry. Baby boomers are working next to generation xers and gen yers/millennials. This is important for us to perpetuate our business, but conflicts can arise. Understand that “out with the old, in with the new” doesn’t apply in our world today. “Old” and “new” must collaborate to take our business forward. As a baby boomer, I realize that everyone has something to offer, and that we’re never too old – or too young or smart – to learn something new. So this new website is a visual depiction of how a healthy generational mix can create great things. Enjoy! – Kip Hanzlicek
