GEC Expands Staff with Three New Hires
PORTAGE, WI – General Engineering Company is pleased to announce the addition of three new staff members to our Portage office. Jaime Miller is our new Accounting/Benefits Coordinator. Shane Evans is an Architectural Technician joining the building design department. Finally, Brian Youngwirth is an addition to the environmental department as a hydrogeologist.
Mr. Youngwirth has over 15 years of experience in the environmental field, specifically in site assessments, investigations and remediation through closure for contaminated sites. Youngwirth comes to GEC with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Hydrogeology from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh.
Mr. Youngwirth had originally planned to work for the DNR in wildlife, but an enthusiastic geology student in college encouraged him to try that field. This eventually led Youngwirth to hydrogeology and the field that would become his life’s passion. Brian will be working directly with Environmental Project Manager, Lynn Bradley, to assist GEC’s clients with all of our environmental services. These services include underground storage tank assessments, Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments, contaminated soil and groundwater investigation through DNR closure and petroleum cleanup projects.
Brian and his family make their home in Oshkosh, WI. In his free time, Brian enjoys hunting, fishing and variety of sports. He looks forward to being a valuable member of the GEC family and helping the Environmental Department grow and succeed.
Ms. Miller has an Associate Degree in Accounting from Madison College and has over 12 years of experience in the accounting field. She took her first accounting class in high school, showed a talent for the subject and enjoyed it very much ever since.
Ms. Miller comes to GEC from the tourism industry, specifically working in the Wisconsin Dells area. She was drawn to GEC as a change from tourism, but still tied to an industry in which she had worked for many years. In addition to overseeing all GEC accounting, Miller will also take on the role of Benefits Coordinator for all GEC staff. In this role, she will ensure that all employees receive required and optional benefits as well as oversee the implementation of all benefits packages. Jaime is looking forward to making her career at General Engineering Company.
Jaime and her daughter live in Wisconsin Dells. She enjoys being outside, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
Mr. Evans recently graduated from Madison College with an Associate Degree in Architectural Technologies. His father introduced him, at a young age, to construction and fabrication, which developed his fascination with building design and construction. Mr. Evans will be working in GEC’s building design department to develop construction drawings using REVIT software.
Shane is an admirer of Frank Lloyd Wright and looks forward to some day visiting Falling Waters. In his free time, Shane enjoys video games, movies, spending time with his fiancé, remote control helicopters and planes and looks forward to taking up golf with his co-workers.We would like to welcome these outstanding new additions to the General Engineering Company family. We look forward to all that they will bring not only to our GEC team and, more importantly, to our clients.
