THE PROP: Daniel E. Szymanski expects to be providing civil engineering services for many years to come.
President, co-owner – Northeast Engineers and Consultants Inc.
Why did you select your profession?
My father’s experiences as an engineer first sparked my interest in architecture and engineering. After completing some site construction work as a summer job, I narrowed my focus to civil engineering.
Where do you see yourself professionally in 10 years?
Northeast Engineers has been in business for 26 years; we survived the latest recession and have recently had the opportunity to grow. I look forward to continuing to provide our services to the area for far more than a decade.
What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?
Consider a master’s degree program before you become too involved in your career.
What is your favorite Rhode Island escape or hobby?
Boating and fishing are my favorite escapes. From weekend trips in the sun to tuna fishing adventures offshore, Rhode Island has a lot to offer.
