As the new Project Delivery Manager, Caitlyn Abbott will be responsible for the overall workload assignment and coordination and team accountability, culture, and business development. A talented engineer and project manager as well, Caitlyn knows our work from field to finish and everything in between. Her positive attitude, creative problem-solving, ability to offer a clear, kind, and fair assessment of time commitments, and ability to generate resolutions were the perfect fit for this new role. A natural relationship builder, Caitlyn knows everyone in the State. And if she doesn’t, she will be fast friends upon their first meeting.
