Michelle Wiesner, CPSM, MBA
I have been a professional services business developer and marketer for over 15 years. I started AEC bridge because I have always enjoyed the research and relationship building responsibilities I have had throughout my career. As a result, I wanted to build a business around putting firms and opportunities together. My goal is to work with firms to be their “boots on the ground” with regard to lead research and subsequent business development efforts.
My experience includes working with architectural firms, mechanical/electrical, structural and geotechnical engineering firms, real estate development/commercial property management, as well as food service consulting firms – within joint ventures, as a prime firm and as a subconsultant in numerous markets nationwide. I have been involved in all aspects of lead and industry research, business development, marketing and proposal functions, trade show planning and implementation as well as marketing and business planning. In addition, I have served on the board of SMPS Colorado and volunteered on the chapter's education committee, which I chaired and co-chaired for several years.
I understand the unique process and relationships associated with building business in the architectural, engineering and construction industry in addition to training staff in these roles.
I would be delighted to assist your firm either as an independent resource to research potential projects and opportunities or as an extension of your business development staff to assist in building teams and relationships that will win work. I am happy to provide references upon request.
