What an incredible honor for Willmeng’s CEO and leader, James Murphy, to be inducted into the Academy of Distinguished Alumni for the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE). Last week, we were able to celebrate both James, and all of the other inductees, including the two new members of the Hall of Fame, Professors Edd Gibson and Sandy Houston. Alongside the other Academy of Distinguished Alumni inductees Dr. Edward Bouwer, Chidambaram Gnanasambanthan, Mark Kramer, and Paul Von Berg. This award has a legacy preceding him of some of the most impactful leaders in the industry, several of who James credits for their influence on his career and guidance through the years. This award reflects the power of relationships, and the strength of the education that the Del E Webb School of Construction has fostered.
