Meet Nick Wise - Project Manager and this month's Hard Hat Hang-Up feature.
Nick was introduced to construction through his family ties to the plumbing industry, which eventually lead him to building a career on the construction management side. Nick started at CCG as a Project Engineer in 2017, and his hard-work and dedication to growth lead to his promotion to Project Manager late last year. Nick's most memorable and rewarding moment in his career so far was managing the 107 Forbes project, a ground-up, 4,000 SF office project located in Annapolis, Maryland.
When asked what his favorite thing about working at CCG is, Nick's answer is the people. "Everyone at CCG is so personable and are very helpful when you run into roadblocks in your personal life or career. The executives make it very easy to approach them to help work through whatever issues you are dealing with," he adds. Nick's passions outside of the office include motocross (he's been racing since he was 4 years old!), exercising and traveling to his next adventure.
