Get to know our newest shareholders and associates! We're excited to have them on our team and helping to lead Westwood forward. The Associate designation at Westwood represents a team member who provides considerable value to the firm through their leadership traits and technical expertise.


Hello everyone. My name is Chris Huss and I am a civil project manager here at Westwood in the wind energy group. I've been at Westwood for seven years now. When I first joined Westwood, I was in the land group. I spent about two and a half years in land before I moved over to renewable energy. In the last year, I was named as an associate here at Westwood, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to share a few random thoughts with you. So here goes.

One of the things that I enjoy most about working at Westwood is the vast resources that we have here. I've worked at smaller firms in the past and it's really difficult when you're the only person there is to turn to for answers. So it's great having the awesome knowledge base and people that we have here, right at your fingertips to ask pretty much any question you can come up with.

One of my favorite memories working here at Westwood is when I first started in renewable energy - of course, the group was much smaller - but we had hoops set up in the office and pretty much every day, everybody would line up to play a game of lightning. So that was pretty much a highlight of the day. That was a lot of fun.

One of the things that I am probably personally known for at least here in the Minneapolis office is playing cribbage. I've got a couple other gentlemen that work here in the office as well and we have been playing cribbage together for... we've kind of lost count, but we believe it's 10 to 15 years. So I'm sure most people in Minneapolis office have seen us during the lunch hour, playing a little cribbage.

Something that people may or may not know about me is that when I was in college, one of the things that helped pay for it was I was a lifeguard. So there you go, there's my minute of fame and thanks for listening!
