The Team at Nexus Engineering Group


Wanted: Team Players

Complex engineering projects succeed based on an essential element that isn’t easily quantified — the value of a highly effective team.

Solving even the simplest project challenge requires multiple skills, from critical thinking and technical knowhow to creative problem-solving and inspired innovation. No single engineer, designer or project manager can do it alone. It takes a team of positive, proactive players to set a clear direction for the project, motivate teammates to go above and beyond, and form powerful partnerships.

At Nexus, we’re always recruiting natural leaders who leverage their experience and the tools and training we provide to reach their full potential. They inspire their teams and clients to accomplish more together – smarter, faster and safer.

Why I chose Nexus

  • Nexus Senior Project Manager Tim Hoekenga
    “When considering a career change, I looked at what my priorities were for the next phase of my career. Those priorities included growth potential, an energetic and exciting company culture, and the opportunity to grow and learn across a variety of industries. Nexus’s vision and culture fit all of those priorities very well.”

Designed to be Different

In 2005, Nexus Founding Partners Jeff Herzog and Marianne Corrao set out to change the way engineering firms serve their clients. While other firms focused on solving design problems and maximizing billable hours, Nexus built a talented team of consultants whose mission is to link today’s strategies to tomorrow’s competitive advantage by delivering extraordinary service and value through:

Owner-side Experience

Understanding how clients use our designs in the field helps us confidently identify and recommend the right solutions. As a team, we draw from our combined years of industry experience – and we’re always looking for talented engineers to join the team and add their experience to the mix.

The Art of Busineering

Every engineering relationship begins with the client’s business, not a design need. Busineering is the intersection of business and engineering. It represents how we approach each new partnership – by understanding our clients’ business, from its core values to its revenue goals. This business-first thinking inspires more creative design and more effective communication.
