Welcome to the Broadbent & Associates, Inc. (Broadbent) website. Thank you for your interest in our company.
As I sat down to write this President’s Message, I wondered what it was that I wanted to say. What message did I want people to hear, regarding Broadbent? What kept coming to mind is that this is such a great place to work and that I could not imagine being anywhere else. I have been with the company for almost 25 years and I still love coming in every day. More and more frequently, people are asking me about when I plan to retire (as the years are piling up on me now), and my answer is, when I am no longer having fun. Well that hasn’t happened yet. We have such a wonderful, talented, and diverse set of people working for us across our five offices. Each office has its own unique culture and feel, and yet we are still able to successfully operate as one unified, family oriented corporation.
What makes me most proud of Broadbent is that our culture is, and always has been, about providing high quality products (solutions to our clients concerns) at a fair price and to create a work environment that is welcoming, fun, and challenging for our employees. This model has been extremely successful, as we are very good at retaining key employees and maintaining relationships with long term clients. Our biggest clients are also our longest standing clients. We have been successfully engaged with some of them for over 20 years.
Currently, we are experiencing some exciting new developments including expansion of our Cultural Resources group, and solid growth in our Stack Testing, Mining, Water Resources, Wastewater Facilities Operations, and Emergency Response sectors. None of it without challenges of course, but what would life be without challenges. Rolling up your sleeves and solving problems is where most of the fun and rewards are anyway.
So, it is with great anticipation and optimism that I look forward to the coming years for Broadbent, as we continue to provide a great service and a great place to work.
Thanks again for your interest in our company.
Douglas G. Guerrant, P.G., C.HG., C.E.M.
