Former city staffer joins Wallace Group
Wallace Group recruits Brad Hagemann as director of public works administration
The Wallace Group recently hired and appointed former Paso Robles city employee Brad Hagemann as the director of the public works administration department for the firm. Hagemann brings a lifetime of knowledge, skill and industry know-how to the firm, the company said in a press release.
Hagemann earned his Bachelor of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering and his Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering at Cal Poly. His resume of work includes project management for the United States Air Force at Vandenberg Air Force Base, supervising engineer and branch chief at the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB), and assistant executive officer at RWQCB. There, Hagemann oversaw a team of nine unit supervisors, a staff of 65 and a budget of $7.8 million.
Hagemann is no stranger to public service on many municipal levels. He worked as Water Resources and Utilities Manager for the City of Paso Robles and as Deputy Director and Utilities Engineer for the City of Santa Maria. Most recently, Brad worked for the Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency (MRWPCA) as the Assistant General Manager. After six years with MRWPCA, Wallace Group is fortunate to have Brad as part of our team.
“This is a significant hire for Wallace Group and we are lucky to have Brad joining us. He brings years of experience in water and wastewater management both in the regulatory, budgeting and planning arenas,” said John Wallace, President of the Wallace Group. “Most importantly, he is a great cultural fit.”
The Wallace Group provides services in civil & transportation engineering, construction management, landscape architecture, mechanical engineering, planning, public works administration, right-of-way services, surveying/GIS solutions, and water resources. The company employs over 50 people.
