DCI's Milestone Principal Promotions

DCI is thrilled to announce the promotion of Amy Pugh and Wade Gelhausen to Principal. Each of their advancements represent a significant milestone for DCI. Wade is now the second Principal for DCI’s Civil department and Amy, who is the Director of Marketing, is the first woman in a non-technical role to become Principal.

Amy Pugh, who is in the firm’s Seattle headquarters, started at DCI 15 years ago as a Marketing Coordinator and has most recently led the firm’s corporate marketing as their Director of Marketing. Since then, she has spearheaded several award-winning marketing campaigns and elevated the DCI brand as they grew from a five-office firm to now 16 offices in eight states. Amy guides her team of nine marketing and communications experts as they continue to position the firm to win work in new and existing markets and distinguish the DCI name. Over the years, Amy has stepped into various operational roles within the firm, including launching DCI’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion group; developing the company-wide intranet; and most recently beginning the formal employee mentorship and development program.

Wade Gelhausen, PE, works out of the firm’s Spokane office and has been with DCI for more than 18 years where he currently oversees the Spokane-based civil team. His work includes the Ferris High School Modernization project – a massive, multi-phased undertaking for both civil and structural teams. He also proudly worked for his alma mater with the Gonzaga Hemmingson University Center. Wade’s professional growth took shape through the years as he established more client relationships and positioned himself into mentorship and leadership roles. He is currently involved with business development efforts to pursue more public infrastructure projects.
