Employee Testimonials

Brian CossmanBrian Cossman , P.E., Project Manager

Moving to Lynchburg from Chicago, IL was quite a change, but a good one. While I think there is no greater large city in the world than Chicago, Lynchburg has plenty to offer and has kept me here for over 10 years. From just a quality of life view, I don’t know many places that would be better than right here. None of the real problems of a large city, but still big enough to find what you are looking for. And if you want to get away, Charlotte, Washington DC, and Williamsburg/VA Beach are all just about 3 hours away. Plus if you like outdoor activities, there are tons of options all around. Boating, hiking in the mountains, fishing, and golfing (over 10 courses) are all within an hour of town.

Professionally, H&P has assisted me in obtaining my masters degree in Engineering. They have also provided any other professional development needed, be it technical or managerial. I’ve also been given the opportunity to work on numerous types of projects with different clients, including James Madison University and almost every nearby locality. Having worked at a few local firms before coming to H&P, I can say they have clearly been the best organization I’ve worked for when it comes to professional development.
