Dr. Thomas Seeger
Don’t just marvel at the planet, try to understand it – and, with this in mind, Dr. Thomas Seeger decided to study Geology at the Eberhard Karls University in Tübingen, where he received his doctorate in 1989. His responsibilities include heading contamination, landfill and brownfield redevelopment projects at CDM Smith. Thomas Seeger prepared a 40 ha site ensuring compliance with statutory waste and soil protection regulations at the federal garden show Heilbronn in 2019. This is a mammoth task that he is especially proud of, as he was doing what he enjoys most–bringing complex specialist issues together to deliver the desired overall result–alongside his project management responsibilities.
Why CDM Smith? The varied, challenging projects and great working atmosphere. I enjoy working with pleasant colleagues and keeping in regular contact with customers.
What do our clients value most about working with us? Customers appreciate CDM Smith's large service portfolio, which offers comprehensive support in their projects and holistic solutions by CDM Smith in interdisciplinary projects. Customers also appreciate the local presence and thus short-term, continuous availability that we can guarantee in Germany thanks to the large number of offices we have in most German states. Customers appreciate CDM Smith's many years of experience in dealing with complex issues and the fact that we are always up to date (techniques, guidelines, communication media).
How have you evolved at CDM Smith? Thanks to CDM Smith's interdisciplinary approach with engineers, scientists and technicians from a wide range of disciplines, I was able to expand my horizons beyond my own area of expertise. The collaboration and management of large, multidisciplinary projects has fostered my development.
What's something you enjoy doing on your off day? That depends on the destination – I like to see the sights, but also enjoy going out into the great outdoors – such as walking, cycling and skiing. I also like to relax with a book.
