Growing Celina through the Mind of an Engineer

Clint Bissett, PE, leader of our Celina office, recently spoke with the Celina EDC regarding the growth of the City. As a civil engineer, Clint’s newly appointed position to the EDC Board offers a unique perspective due to his background working with both the public and private side of development. His extensive knowledge of public infrastructure needs and his understanding of the development needed to expand the City’s economic growth will greatly benefit the City’s development.

“Celina is pro-growth, pro-development, and they want to do it the right way.” – Clint Bissett, PE
