MAJOR BRANNEN, III, PE

What inspired you to choose your career path?
From a young age, I have always enjoyed creating things and being outside.  I have a few engineers and designers in my family that helped facilitate creativity and inspired me to be an engineer.  For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be an engineer.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy the design process, solving the puzzles of site design, and managing multifaceted scopes.  I think the most satisfying part of being an engineer is watching a project from conceptual design through the completion of construction.

What are you most passionate about?
I am passionate about my family and the outdoors, especially when I can get both at the same time.  I enjoy fishing, hunting, hiking and boating the most but I consider woodworking and music strong hobbies too. My Dad and I make cutting boards, trays, iPad holders and furniture out of various woods like walnut, oak, juniper and reclaimed heart pine from south Georgia.  This Christmas I made bookmarks out of walnut and oak.  Currently I am making a queen bed out of cherry and my dad is finishing up a desk for his office.
I can’t sing very well at all, but I have been playing the guitar for 10 years. I am self-taught and by no means an expert on the guitar but I enjoy playing and learning new songs I like.

What is your greatest challenge?
I set a goal after graduating from the University of Georgia to become a Professional Engineer.  I think my greatest challenge was, in the face of a recession and other job opportunities, staying true to my goal by gaining requisite engineering experience needed to take the PE exam. .

Name an important “lessons learned” moment you have experienced.
Lesson Learned: Effective Communication.  While working onsite for a civil contractor in Louisiana, I was responsible for procuring certain materials for our civil construction team.  Our construction manager and material vendor used different nomenclature for the same geotech fabric product.  Though I was aware of the inconsistent nomenclature, I sent a quick email ordering $75,000 of a material that we did not need for another month or two.  After the shipment arrived, I realized my mistake and learned an important lesson in communication - always re-read important emails/correspondence before sending.
