Although he’s a Jimmy Buffet fan, that doesn’t mean ISG Project Manager Kent Hays spends his working hours in Mankatoville looking for his lost shaker and salt—however, you might find him at the courthouse looking through 100-year-old historical records, or looking to pass the puck up the ice while playing with his hockey team. Outside of work and his hockey league, you can find Kent coaching at Mankato West, golfing, or reading. To learn more about Kent’s 14+ year career at ISG, his even longer career in hockey, or the challenges that come with working with surveying information from the mid-1800s, read on!
Women's History Month is here, and in honor of the number of women in the engineering field rising we have compiled some inspirational words from ISG’s women engineers across multiple offices and disciplines. Here’s what they had to say:
Whitney Stramer likes to create, and her creations know no bounds. In her role as a Graduate Engineer at ISG, she creates both designs and positive relationships with co-employee owners and clients. Whitney builds these relationships outside the office with her volunteering, whether working for non-profits or mentoring high school students. As if that wasn’t enough, the self-admitted “avid plant lady” is also a huge fan of DIYs and crafting. Read on to learn more about Whitney!
A veteran of the United States Navy, Civil Engineer Evan Del Val now charts his own course as an ISG Employee Owner, and boards a smaller ship (his kayak) to navigate the rivers of Greater Des Moines when the temperature allows. In sub-zero temperatures, you can find him spending time with his family, or braving the outdoors on cross-country skis or a snowboard.
While on the job site, ISG Project Manager and Construction Administrator Kirk Moe uses his extensive field experience and entrepreneurial background to help each client’s vision become a reality— but when not leading a team at ISG, you can find Kirk guiding anglers on fishing trips year-round for his guide service ProMoe Outdoors, or throwing a line in the water pro bono with his two kids, friends, the Boys & Girls Club, or veterans. Read on to learn more about Kirk’s work at ISG and his involvement with the Annual Hooked on Hardwater event happening next Saturday, February 23!
Although you may not find it on her LinkedIn, Danyelle Pierquet has “professional” experience in landscape architecture dating back to age 12. Read on to find out about Danyelle’s childhood networking practices, and the expertise she brings to ISG now!
A former volunteer Fire Chief, Project Manager and Construction Administrator Joe Wagner was once an ISG client. Read on to learn about his transition to employee owner, how gardening is like project managing, and who’s going to win the Super Bowl.
