“There really is something to be said about loving what you do and when it’s a true calling the work picks you not the other way around. Simply put, I love what I do.”
DEV INC has assembled a staff of professionals with over 60 years of experience within the a-e and construction industry. President and CEO, Dev Anand provides the day to day leadership of the firm and believes that “can do” attitudes are a necessity of the type of staff that will lead the charge for themselves and the clients:
“Team members who just “get it” coming in the door – if you don’t love what you do and have a commitment to do it passionately you can’t deliver a world class project and that is the standard DEV INC strives for. It doesn’t take a lot of brilliant minds to do the job just the best minds to do it right.”
You’re only as good as your last project and DEV, INC. has built a track record of success by securing over 90% of its projects as a direct result of client referrals.
