Paul began his career with a 4-year stint with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, then joined Sebesta for seven years. Target then invited him on board, where he rose from a group manager position to the firm’s Director of Engineering. He returns to Sebesta to continue his passion for client management.
“Paul will be a key member of our executive team and will contribute to the strategic decision-making and operational execution of company initiatives across all areas of the business,” says Robert L.
