What makes Weitz such a great place to work?
I enjoy the opportunity we have to help our customers’ visions come true. We get the job to help their space needs align with their business needs; from huge corporations to small not-for-profits. It is truly rewarding.

What is one thing everyone should know about The Weitz Company?
That we listen. We want to know their goals first, then tailor a solution to their physical needs.

Something unique or interesting about me is …
I’m a former Division I college football player and spent 10 years coaching at one of the top high schools in the state of Iowa. Being part of a team is in my DNA and I love the life lessons of sport.
