A quiet man, it can be hard to get Dennis Amos to talk about himself. But behind his quiet demeanor lies a heart for helping, thus, a trait that enables him to achieve great things. Dennis has been a member of the A&A family for over ten years. His aspirations of becoming an engineer began upon a suggestion from a district engineer with WVDOT during a summer job. He followed that suggestion and decided to pursue engineering as a career. He worked for a while at a firm in West Virginia and when it merged with another company and planned to move the office further away, he began to search for other opportunities and found Anderson & Associates. He mentions that “company culture and location were both motivators” for his move from the previous firm. He started as a Project Engineer in July of 2005. “The culture at A&A is growth oriented,” says Amos, “Opportunities for growth and advancement are readily available.” This rang true for Dennis as over the next three years, he would be promoted to assistant project manager and then to project manager in 2008.
Now, a few more short years have passed, and when there was a vacancy in the Vice President of Municipal position due to the promotion of Jessica Nichols to President, it was Dennis’ name that came up and he was suggested for the role. Dennis accepted the offer, and while still “new” to the VP role, he is already strategizing on ways that A&A can be of even better service to our clients and reach out further into our regional area to new clients. “I look forward to continuing to build upon A&A’s reputation for providing quality service to our clients,” Dennis says. “I’m excited about helping our Municipal Line of Business grow.” He’s worked on many projects that help others and which he’s found rewarding, like bringing clean water to citizens of various municipalities.
On the home front, he helps his wife, Amy, with her business, “Happy Tails Bullmastiffs” and helps at church. He and Amy have two children, Elijah and Paige, and spend lots of family time participating in various sports and also enjoy camping and hunting. Dennis says his life is “pretty basic,” but we see it as full of achievements. Congratulations, Dennis, on your new promotion!
