DAVID S. WILKISON, PE

What inspired you to choose your career path?
I was born into this business.  My father was a land surveyor and I began working with him when I was in elementary school and continued through college.  I experienced at an early age the personal satisfaction you feel when you exceed a client’s expectations and the pride of seeing your project become a constructed reality.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
Building trusting relationships with clients, colleagues, elected officials, and regulators. 

What are you most passionate about?
Communication skills. They are essential to function as a human being.  Good communication skills are crucial for consultants.  Effective, meaningful, and timely communication with clients, co-workers, elected officials, and regulators is the hallmark of a great consultant. Rarely have I been criticized for over communicating.                                                                        

What is your greatest challenge?
Accepting rejection and moving on. My primary responsibility is to develop business for DRMP.

Name an important “lessons learned” moment you have experienced.
When I was a young PE, I had the good fortune to work with a great Project Manager (PM) who taught me to never “burn a bridge” with anybody you work with because you never know when you will cross paths with this person.  I was going to confront a reviewer at a water management district over a permitting issue and this PM said “No you are not”. He said you never know where this reviewer may end up. He was right. A few years later this reviewer was promoted to Review Section Supervisor and could have made life difficult for me and my clients. This is a good “lessons learned” for both personal and professional life.
