Burns & McDonnell is the only place Joel has worked, for almost a quarter of a century. He’s a big proponent of thinking big and saying yes, as those actions have made all the difference for him. Joel thinks the key to success is hiring the best people — with a certain personality and set of skills — and just getting out of their way and letting them go achieve. To the right person, it’s exhilarating.
I’ve seen the world. I’ve worked on incredible projects. I’ve met such interesting people along the way, highly talented and motivated people. It’s just fun. I’m having way too much fun to ever be bored.
When Joel tells you Burns & Mac cares about health and wellness, you should take him seriously. An executive screening identified a major health concern, likely saving his life.
