Community Engagement Expands To OKC Market
Professional Engineering Consultants took a significant step in its commitment to communities by naming KC Morrissey as VP of Community Engagement serving PEC’s Oklahoma City office. With 17 years of Business Development experience, Morrissey brings a wealth of knowledge to his new role and is looking forward to continuing to learn more about the market that he has lived in for so long.
“I have lived in OKC since 1968 and look forward to discovering all sorts of new things that I never knew existed right here under my nose,” Morrissey said.
SVP of Community Engagement Mike Lally expressed nothing but confidence in KC’s abilities. “His history and knowledge of the OKC market is significant. He spent a lot of his young adult life and career there. He’s someone that has connectivity, knowledge, and existing relationships in the market.”
“In this Community Engagement endeavor, the people and the technical leadership of the office have great admiration and respect for him. He’s been a really good partner and a great servant leader for the folks there,” Lally continued.
With the addition of the Community Engagement division, PEC is aligning itself with its 2032 Strategic Plan. Like Business Development, this new division focuses on active participation within communities, growing new relationships, and attentively listening to determine how PEC can contribute to a brighter future. Lally gave his perspective on Community Engagement.
“It’s less about just coming in and billing hours. It’s about doing things for a higher purpose in many ways. I think we all feel better about it when we think, ‘Wow, I worked on a project that delivered clean water to a city of 5,000 people.’ Or ‘I was involved in a project that took kids out of going to school in trailers and put them into a nice brand new 21st century elementary school.’”
To kick off these efforts in Oklahoma City, Morrissey is hitting the ground running by volunteering at leadership organizations to find out how PEC can be more involved. “This is a great opportunity to work within the OKC community in a different capacity that will contribute to PEC’s future growth. I look forward to the challenge.”
