St. Charles, IL – WBK Engineering (WBK), the St. Charles-based civil engineering design and consulting firm, is bringing Andy Sikich on board to serve as Civil Engineering Manager.
Andy Sikich, PE, CFM brings more than 30 years of professional engineering experience in both public and private sectors, the most recent of which was spent serving as Director of Public Works for the Village of Downers Grove.
Sikich will serve as Civil Engineering Manager, overseeing the Municipal and Water Resources practice groups at WBK Engineering. Said WBK President, Greg Chismark, “Andy’s experience in public works design and construction, both within the public and private sectors will add to our depth and experience in providing civil engineering services to local markets in Chicagoland as well as across the country. We are very honored to welcome his leadership and commitment to excellence at WBK.”
Sikich feels that his new role at WBK offers the ability to exercise all the engineering expertise gained throughout his decades-long career. “The first half of my career was spent in the private sector, specializing in providing site/civil engineering and land development services. During the latter half, I was in leadership roles primarily within municipal public works departments, so I feel that this role and opportunity to join WBK is the perfect marriage of my previous experiences and expertise.”
“I look forward to jumping right into the local municipal infrastructure engineering and stormwater management projects that I’m familiar with but am also excited to be able to engage with the project teams across the Bodwé Professional Services Group, working with Federal clients and on projects across the country.”
The addition of the Civil Engineering Manager role demonstrates the investment and focus that the firm is putting on maximizing value for the clients of WBK and the Bodwe Professional Services Group. When considering the impact of providing mentorship in his new role, Sikich states “That’s one of the things I’ve enjoyed most throughout my engineering career – the opportunity to help springboard the next generation of leadership and I am very pleased to now be able to do that at WBK.”
Sikich is the latest hire for WBK Engineering and the tribally owned Bodwé Professional Services Group. WBK is committed to their clients and to the betterment of communities by mediating the built and natural environments.
