Why CDM Smith? I’ve worked for other firms. I even briefly left CDM Smith to work for a large, publicly-traded competitor, but I returned because I enjoy the work, the people and our unique approach. Being privately held makes a difference – there’s a sense of community knowing that we’re in it together and each of us is invested in our success.
