Construction Manager | El Pico Water Treatment Plant, Laredo, Texas
In just over a decade with Western Summit, Bren Cline has progressed rapidly to become a Construction Manager, an achievement he attributes largely to a company culture that not only allows, but encourages people to excel. “Anyone can do what I did; you just have to work hard. At Western Summit, the opportunities are there.”
A Colorado native and graduate of Colorado State University (B.S. in Civil Engineering), Cline found out about WSCI through a friend who worked there. “I was at a really small company and wanted something bigger, with more opportunities.”
Western Summit delivered. Three years into his career at WSCI, Cline was made a Project Manager. “It was a very advanced position for someone my age (27), but they believed I had the talent and I was given the opportunity to perform.” His excellent performance “rolled into another job and another, and “the rest,” he says, “is history.”
Cline has nothing but praise for his experience at Western Summit. “For whatever effort I put in, Western Summit reciprocates. With more effort, I get more rewards, more benefits.”
Outside of work, Cline stays plenty busy. He says his favorite leisure-time activity is golf, but he also enjoys snowboarding, attending concerts and sporting events, and he loves spending time with his family, including his young nephew. An avid traveler, he has been to such far-flung places as Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, and France, and he’s already planning his next trip abroad: to England and Ireland.
For the moment, though, he says, “I’m content to travel in the U.S., to tell you the truth.”
These days, thanks to his role on the El Pico Water Treatment Plant, Cline is also traveling quite a bit for work: to, from, and around Texas. While he’s enjoyed seeing Texas cities such as Austin and Houston, he is a little bit homesick. “I have [Denver] Broncos season tickets. . . and that hasn’t worked out so well being in Texas.”
