Member Highlight: Jamie Weaver, AGC Business Development Committee

Meet Jamie!

Jamie has been working in client development roles in blue collar industries for over 24 years. Her degree is in Welding Technologies. She started her career as a pipe fitter, welding large OD, flat to be rolled pipe. She then moved to a marketing and sales role. Jamie is energized by the pride that crafts people feel when a job is done well. The reality is that many tradespeople that do fantastic work do not take the time to let others know about what they do. That is where Jamie has found a career in helping clients connect with firms that provide quality work. Jamie is currently working at Terracon. Terracon is a national consulting engineering firm that specializes in geotechnical, geophysics, environmental and materials testing / special inspections. A good foundation is essential to any project.

Jamie is also a contributing author to 2 women's leadership books, Upward and Growth in the GRIT series. When Jamie is not working or participating in local AGC events, she is enjoying her 2 beautiful daughters, husband and the many pets and plants on their hobby farm.

Why did you choose to get involved with AGC's Business Development Committee?

A desire to learn from other AEC professionals around the country and to share what I have learned over the years with them. Through working with the AGC of America you get to meet people from all over the industry and get a look at the bigger picture. You also have the opportunity to work through the challenges with this broad group of people instead of taking it all upon yourself and your firm to produce all of the answers.

What has been your favorite in-person AGC event and why?

The Conventions. There is a different type of atmosphere when you are traveling with a group of professionals and you are all there for the same reason, to learn, to grow, and to create friendships.

Any advice for your fellow Business Development professionals?

As a Client Development Specialist in the AEC Industry, I have to give advice about engagement. You are going to get out of the organization as much as you put into it. I also highly suggest joining a committee that you are interested in. You will get the opportunity to know that group of people very well.
