Message from the President
As a child visiting my father’s engineering firm in Youngstown, Ohio, I remember meeting the technical staff and listening with fascination to their challenges and solutions. When I began working at the company as a young surveyor and eventual engineering student, I joined as an eager apprentice to their knowledge and experience. Many of those individuals who took the time to patiently explain a calculation or consider my own suggestions are still active participants of the company four decades later. They are the heart of professional excellence and mentoring that transfigured ms consultants from a civil engineering and planning firm to a multi-discipline engineering and architecture organization with multiple offices and a diverse range of services.
ms’ emergence and growth follows a blueprint that was drawn by the talents and strengths of our technical managers. Our project team approach allows us to combine the technical expertise from our various service sectors choreographed through a project manager to deliver added value to our clients. We are, in essence, a brain trust working with daily collaboration – sharing resources and creativity. This evolution does not just happen – it is developed through years of working together and communicating. We are a community of professionals, all working toward a mutual goal – serving the client.
Service is our primary focus, but we know that this process is an ongoing continuum of change and therefore we grow and direct our efforts toward our client mix and advancing technology. Foreseeing some of the challenges we will face allows us to develop programs and systems that prepare and enable us to address these changes. Proper mentoring, training, and implementation of the latest technology allows us to stay in step with the progress in our field. The global marketplace is already a daily consideration in our development of resources.
To the best of our abilities, we continue to prepare for the future with the same basic principles that have delivered us to where we are.
Working with you today, we can develop solutions for tomorrow.
- Thomas E. Mosure, President
