We’re excited to share Don Atkinson has joined the FSI team as a construction estimator. A Kansas City native, he graduated from the University of Kansas and then, worked for a non-destructive testing company in Oklahoma for several years. He later moved home to KC where he worked for two equipment dealers. His experience from past positions has quickly made him an asset to our team.
What is your favorite thing to do in Kansas City?
Eat! With BBQ joints, Mexican restaurants, steakhouses, and everything in between, Kansas City has it all.
How do you like to spend your time outside of work?
My wife and I recently had our first child, a little boy named Brooks. Even though he has occupied most of our time, I have still been able to sneak away for a few rounds of golf.
What do you like best about FSI?
It has been very refreshing to get away from the “corporate world.” Over the course of my career, I’ve worked for larger firms with multiple layers of management, buyouts and holding companies. The change of structure has been great. It sounds trite, but I don’t think the benefit of a tight-knit family atmosphere can be overstated.
