Meet Westwood Associate Mike Kern
Get to know our newest shareholders and associates over the coming weeks. We're excited to have them on our team and helping to lead Westwood forward.
“I find that my best learning moments come in situations where I fail,” shares new associate Mike Kern. “Those moments when you think you finally have a good grasp on something and someone comes along and proves you wrong and you realize you still have a lot to learn. It helps to humble you and teach you lessons that stick with you for the rest of your career.”
Mike joined Westwood in 2014 after college friend and fellow surveyor Seth Weckman informed him of a job opening. Throughout his work, Mike values integrity. “I believe our actions and standards that we hold ourselves to reflect who we are as individuals and our company as a whole,” he says. “Our clients recognize that we have a lot of integrity which is why they trust us with their projects and keep coming back to us. It’s a main driver to why we are a nationally renowned leader in our industry.”
Mike enjoys working at a place where everyone brings a different perspective to the job. “It makes it fun to collaborate and come up with unique solutions to everyday problems.” We’re glad to have Mike’s perspective on our team!
