ECON, local engineering, surveying and planning firm with offices in Lakeland and Winter Haven, has named Mike Wadley as its new Director of Planning.
Mr. Wadley has over 30 years of experience in land planning, is well versed in collaborating with a team of professionals to take a project from the client’s vision through occupancy.
“My philosophy over my career is that “the local government is your partner” through all phases of a project from its inception, master planning, engineering, permitting, construction and finally occupancy,” said Mr. Wadley. He has been successful in working with local governments to solve problems and achieve a client’s goals within budget and schedule using this approach. According to Mr. Wadley, “this would not have been possible in many cases without close coordination and cooperation with local government staff and officials.”
Mr. Wadley remains active in many professional and civic associations through volunteering. Currently he also serves as Chairman of the Northridge CRA Advisory Board for Polk County. He received his Bachelors in Economics from the University of Central Florida.
