For Matt Mano, it’s the people that make his job rewarding. Mano, vice president at Milwaukee firm Stephen Perry Smith, said his position has helped him get acquainted with clients from a wide variety of backgrounds.
“I meet a lot of very different people through working, and that makes it a lot of fun,” Mano said.
Mano has recently been working with one fast-growing client in particular, Milwaukee Tool. The Brookfield-based manufacturer has been expanding rapidly in recent years, and Mano has worked to design several of the company’s projects, including work on a four-story office tower. He’s also helping to design a space for the company in downtown MIlwaukee, where the firm plans to have as many as 1,200 jobs.
“It’s a top-notch run organization,” Mano said. “Everybody I’ve worked with there is top quality. It has made for a very enjoyable experience.”
