Meet Our Geotechnical Leadership Team
May 04, 2020
In 1973, S&ME was founded as a local geotechnical engineering firm specializing in soil and materials testing. Fast forward to 2020, we have grown into a company with expertise in engineering, design, environmental sciences, construction services, and more. As we adapt our organization to meet our newly defined strategic objectives and goals outlined in our “Thrive Together” Strategic Plan, we pride ourselves in continuing our legacy as geotechnical experts while continuing to expand our service offerings, fostering long-term relationships with our clients, while actively making our communities better.
S&ME names a new Director of Geotechnical Services.
S&ME recently named Angela Musselwhite, PE, F.NSPE as Director of Geotechnical Services. Angela is currently based out of the Greenville, South Carolina office and provides leadership and strategic direction to the Geotechnical Services Business Unit. She is a Vice President and a newly elected member of the S&ME Board of Directors. Over her 35-year career with S&ME, she has served the geotechnical and construction testing/inspection needs of many clients across the Southeast. Her many years of experience have also provided the opportunity for her to mentor countless young engineers.
Angela tells us,
“I’m excited about this leadership team and our Geotechnical team as a whole. One of our Core Values at S&ME is to “Work and Grow Together,” meaning we thrive and are better through collaboration as one team. As a group, we embody this Core Value. I look forward to the team’s continued success in providing the level of service and expertise our clients need to help them build successful and meaningful projects that better our communities.”
