Growing up with an architect for a father, Jamie Heupel’s drawings of buildings were probably a little more structurally sophisticated than the other kids’. At ISG Jamie spends his days solving a variety of problems, from answering simple emails, to engineering column-free open floor plans. While not problem-solving or looking forward to his 25th wedding anniversary vacation in Hawaii, Jamie can be found rooting for the Minnesota Vikings- from Green Bay.
I try to think of my job as more of a problem solver. Whether it’s simply answering an email or phone call to more complex problems like building structures. The complex problems are usually something like supporting long spans so that the structure can have wide open floor space and free of columns. That is not always easy to do.
I can only recommend one book and that is because Strengths Finder 2.0 had been given to me when I first started at ISG. In all my previous years of employment with other companies, they never encouraged individual professional development. The most valuable takeaway would be that it focuses on your strengths rather than emphasizing and critiquing your weaknesses.
I live in Green Bay but am a Minnesota Viking’s fan. Loved it even more when Brett Favre signed with them!
My Dad. He is an architect and so I learned to visualize and draw buildings at a young age. And yes, we do still battle over who’s more important; the architect or the engineer. My wife has also become one of my role models as she is now running two successful businesses along with still managing our family and home.
Humorous, Thoughtful, Sacrificial
