“I was attracted to Dunaway by its culture, and the way it values its employees,” Albers said in a news release from the company. “When I visited the company for my first interview, I could feel it. It was a very genuine feeling from those I met with. I wanted to be a part of that.”

The feeling was mutual, the company said.

“Nova is a great fit for our company,” said Tom Galbreath, CEO of Dunaway. “Not only does she embody the culture we are striving to maintain at Dunaway, but she has the requisite experience that it will take to grow the company, while preserving that culture.”

Albers joins Dunaway after spending the better part of five years at Exeter Finance, where most recently she was a senior vice president. She also has work experience at GM Financial and Blue Cross Blue Shield Minnesota.

“We want team members who are not only happy in the workplace, but also in the field when they are interacting with a client, or a potential client in a business development role,” Albers said. “If an employee leaves us, our goal is to have them speak highly about their experience at Dunaway. These kinds of goals are readily achievable, especially with the culture that is already in place.”

Dunaway provides a range of services, including civil engineering, structural engineering, planning and landscape architecture, environmental engineering, surveying and GIS services.
