I feel recognized, excited and obviously want to keep up the good work. I love designing and meeting with clients but my favorite aspect of work is seeing projects from the beginning to the end.

I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to collaborate with different consultants and team members from different backgrounds and experience. Sometimes this job is challenging but it’s incredibly rewarding.”
“Congratulations to our new company associates, Dale, Sarah, Jerry, and Gon and our new Senior Associate, May. I am proud of your well deserving achievements and contributions” said Paul DiDonato, ATI’s President.
