Get to know our newest shareholders and associates! We're excited to have them on our team and helping to lead Westwood forward.

“Relationships are the most important part of our daily routine, and they can’t be over-valued,” says Christian Sorensen. “Your day is made up of the people you work with, getting along with them and sharing success together.” Christian takes pride in working with people who share a common interest of creating engineering solutions. “When we have people like this on our team, we can listen to each other and brainstorm solutions that one person on their own might not come up with.”

For Christian, the thing he enjoys most about working at Westwood is being able to access an array of complimentary services that benefit from each other being part of the same company. “It’s great to be able to directly support clients with so many services, instead of needing to pull in sub-consultants,” he explains. “When we’re all on the same team, we can rely on our people and trust them, knowing they have the same vision and goals for projects.”

Christian shares a recent “a-ha” moment when he connected physics concepts to his engineering work. “A lightbulb went off in my head and I realized that the physics I had learned in high school actually has a strong correlation with what I do today. In physics, everything has a resonance: when you blow in a whistle, the air resonates; when you stimulate a laser, it vibrates; a bridge will oscillate from resonance. It’s a neat feeling when concepts click together in your head, and now I have a deeper understanding of how the work that I do functions!
