Meet our Awesome Associate Josh Mattox, an Project Manager with our Transportation division in the Jacksonville, FL office. Josh joined our team in 2014. At WGI, we know our success starts with our associates and that’s why we want to share their awesome stories with you.

Hello Josh, tell us a little bit about where you’re from and where you went to school:

I’m from a small dot in southern Oregon, and  I attended Oregon Institute of Technology where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering.

What drew you to this profession?

I was tired of working the swing shift and driving a forklift in a plywood mill. The only accredited programs offered in my hometown were civil engineering, surveying, or nursing. I did not want to be a nurse so I flipped a coin. Civil won!

What types of projects have you worked on?

I have worked on everything from sidewalk projects to multi-level complex limited access interchanges.

What’s your get-pumped song?

Anything AC/DC, but specifically Thunderstruck and arguably the best rock song ever, Back in Black.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time, I like to play good golf (because I don’t like to play bad golf), and smoke meat.

What was your first job?

My first job was setting targets at a gun club when I was 13 years old.

When I’m creatively stuck, I…

Pour some good bourbon over ice.

I was a marksmanship coach in the USMC.

Who or what inspires you?

Failure, mine, and others.

Everyone at WGI has a story about why they joined the team. What’s yours?

My previous employer had a small design group that did mostly sidewalks and resurfacing projects. I got tired of the same old thing, and WGI seemed to be able to offer more opportunity. Since then, I have been involved in a lot of really cool projects with awesome team members. The Team is what makes the difference. Because of them, the first two Design-Build projects that I managed at WGI won awards. One was a National Merit Award for Excellence and the other was a DBIA Florida Honor award.

Wow, that’s awesome! Congrats on your continued success at WGI and thanks for sharing your story with us.
