WithersRavenel’s first cohort of future project managers graduates
It was graduation day for 20 of our employee-owners. The first cohort of WithersRavenel’s Future Project Managers Academy (FPMA) had its graduation ceremony at the Sitti restaurant in downtown Raleigh last week.
The FPMA graduates started their 18-month journey meeting each month for virtual sessions that tackled a range of technical, financial, personal, and soft skills. Led by experts, participants were expected to complete assigned tasks either prior to or after the sessions.
Jim Canfield, PE, President and CEO of WithersRavenel, attended the ceremony. In his address to the graduates, he reiterated the importance of honoring commitments and urged the team to apply what they have learned to continue supporting clients on projects.
The FPMA began as one of WithersRavenel’s initiatives to provide continual professional development for its more than 375 employee-owners.
A second cohort of 21 staff members began its 18-month course in April of last year, while another batch of FPMA enrollees is set to kick off in April of this year.
WithersRavenel’s FPMA was created to give additional training to project managers and future project managers who show strong potential to be leaders in their practice area.
