CEC will nurture your entrepreneurial spirit, supporting you in building a utility design team that will serve existing clients/projects as well as new clients and industries you choose to pursue.   We’ll encourage you to establish and maintain strong client relationships, as relationships are a primary reason for CEC’s success over the past 30+ years.
