OUR STORY

Dennis started Vista in 2014, with the thought that he would be a solo practicing engineer for the foreseeable future.  However, Dennis really enjoyed the relationships with clients that he was allowed to build as the business owner.  As clients grew to appreciate the service that Dennis provided, a decision had to be made: Turn work away?  Or grow?  They say business is easy until people get involved.  Dennis decided he would improve upon his experiences from previous jobs and implement ideas that would promote a fun, family-oriented work place, where people took pride in their work, serving clients, and in helping each other. Jake Wright was Vista’s first full-time teammate, starting on January 1, 2018.  Dennis and Jake steadily grew the business together in 2018 and into the first part of 2019.  Then things really took off around May of 2019.  Between May of 2019 and August of 2020, Vista was joined by Marshall Stokes, Karla Kreilkamp, Eric Struben, Avery Morris, Jon Shannon, Dana Benton, Blake Morley, and Kate Carrigg.  As of August 2020, we’re slowing down to catch our breath, enjoy each other, and have a blast serving our clients.
