Dana Thompson

Recruiter - West Region

What gets me up in the morning is the quest to find that diamond in the rough. This is what drives me!”

The journey that brought me to AEI has been a winding road, but each step along the path led me to a place that feels like home.

Dana Thompson’s career in human resources began in healthcare and technology. She transitioned into architecture at the beginning of a resurgence in the economy and was immediately charged with searching for increasingly scarce candidates. Dana lives by a philosophy of treating others as she would want to be treated, which serves her well in attracting and winning candidates in even the most competitive markets. Seeing a like-minded organization in AEI, she joined the engineering world, expanding her breadth in the A/E space and applying her talent-integrative skills to the opportunities of this booming field.

Dana is the recruiter for AEI's Seattle, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Portland, and San Francisco offices.
