Daft McCune Walker, Inc. (DMW), a multidisciplinary land development/design consulting firm, announced Lisa Gobrecht will succeed Tom Repsher as president of the firm. Gobrecht has been with the firm 18 years, most recently as controller and treasurer. Repsher, a land planner and landscape architect and owner with DMW, will remain active with the firm as chairman and director of planning and design.
“In these challenging economic times, the company recognized the need for someone with the corporate, financial and operations experience in the role of president,” said Repsher. “We were fortunate to have a veteran like Lisa on board and ready for the challenge.”
Gobrecht approaches her new role with experience and enthusiasm.
“I see a future built on learning, where veteran professionals work hand-in-hand with new talent, expanding our business base, and reaffirming our longstanding tradition for setting the standards in this industry. … DMW remains committed to developing talent, through lifelong learning, top-level recruiting, and one-on-one mentoring. Our employees are passionate about their work, and our culture reinforces and rewards innovation.”
