February 1987 - Bill Zink, PE, President, Joins christopher as Entry-Level Engineer
Bill Zink started work the day after President’s Day, 1987, after interviewing with Bill Goldsmith. At that time, the starting salary for an entry level engineer was nine dollars an hour, five dollars an hour less than his after-college job of processing soybeans in Decatur, Illinois. According to Bill, he took the job despite the difference in pay because he wanted to ride in a real elevator to get to work instead of a grain elevator.
Since then, Bill has been involved in the design and construction of civil engineering infrastructure and land planning in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland and his scope of work includes educational, public and private, commercial mixed-use, religious, recreational and hospitality.
His communication skills and ability to understand the goals and needs of each project are outstanding, and Bill is known for his excellent and long-lasting work relationships with clients, State and Local officials, and various regulatory associations.
Bill continues to lead christopher’s project teams to success today.
