For our next Inspiring Engineers event, Ben Burgess, construction engineering and management ‘06, will talk about his experiences starting and leading his own civil contracting firm. In seven years, his company has grown to over $40 million in annual revenue. Burgess was fired from his first job, an obstacle he was able to overcome and use as motivation to start his own business.

Burgess will chat with Helene Lollis, chair of the NC State Engineering Foundation College Alumni and Engagement Committee and president and CEO of Pathbuilders. We hope you’ll join us virtually for this exciting conversation.

The Inspiring Engineers series shares diverse stories, career paths and experiences that were all in some way shaped by NC State Engineering. All of us have a story to tell, and we’re looking forward to introducing you to a few of NC State Engineering’s inspiring stories throughout the year.
