Professional Profile: Philip Cordeiro 2018

Philip Cordeiro

Name: Philip Cordeiro

Title: Branch Manager

Company: Allen & Major Associates, Inc. (A&M)

Location: Lakeville, MA

Birthplace: Stoughton, MA

Education: B.S. from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth

What does your firm do and any plans for the future: Allen & Major provides multi-disciplined services for ground up development projects.  Positioned on the South Shore, we service the entirety of southern Mass., R.I. and eastern Conn. 

Keys to success: There is no greater harbinger of success than communication. Our clients expect it, the public demands it, and A&M provides this as a baseline to all projects. Without it, the collective goals are not achieved. 

Did you have a mentor if so who & why? If not tell us about someone living or not who you admire: My first director was Brian Ricker. He provided a practical, level headed approach to problem solving and was instrumental in ensuring young engineers were exposed to all aspects of engineering, a trait I try and reinforce to this day. 

Where do you see yourself in 10 years:  I hope to be forward moving every step of the way.  The industry will continue to evolve, and I hope to do the same.

If you had to choose a different profession, what would it be: Teacher. There are few nobler professions than sharing what you have learned to others.
