Meet Tyler Maxson
Graduate Engineer, Private Development

Whether doing design work, communicating with clients, representing the team at meetings, or going to city council, Tyler appreciates the opportunities he is given to represent Westwood as a graduate engineer. It’s a responsibility he doesn’t feel many other firms offer staff with his level of experience. As a young professional, he feels trusted by his team, who recognize that the knowledge Tyler quickly gains is a huge benefit to both Westwood and its clients.

Opportunities for young professionals exist outside the office, too. "Westwood's happy hour is a great time for co-workers to get to know each other in a non-professional context. There's always a great turnout." He says, "It makes Westwood feel like more of a community."

I’m given the opportunity to represent Westwood on a daily basis, which feels like a rare opportunity for people my age in this industry.
