“My motivation as a project manager is to harmonize all the stakeholders’ interests,” says civil engineer and senior project manager Ole Henseler. Ole originally wanted to be an architect, but his math skills were better than his drawing, so instead he opted for a degree in civil engineering at the Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany.
Since then, he has focused on soil-related projects even though he loves bridges, towers, and mountains. Ole enjoys the uniqueness of every project and he likes to create organizational structures, coordinate procedures, and examine and optimize processes. As a project manager at CDM Smith, Ole has specialized in environmental site assessment, contaminated site investigation, due diligence, management consulting and remediation design.
“My clients especially appreciate my availability and reliability. I always try to gain a detailed and accurate understanding of the client´s desired outcome and to provide reasonable and sustainable solutions on short notice,” Ole says. “I am convinced that an honest dialogue and fairness in business relationships are of particular importance.”
“CDM Smith has given me the opportunity to work internationally as a project manager in various disciplines of civil and environmental engineering and with changing expert teams. That’s always challenging and exciting,” he says.
