HCEA is owned 100-percent by its employees; meaning each of us is a stakeholder in every project we touch. This builds an environment of entrepreneurship and personal accountability, while it also encourages us to support one another and work as a team. Much of our staff has been with Hillis-Carnes for decades, and we know we can rely on each other’s strengths and collaborate seamlessly.

Our Mission:
-Prepare the next generation of firm leaders through ongoing training and certification, opportunities for direct management experience and providing more involvement in overall firm management for our most promising employees.
-Recruit and reward the most exceptional engineers available within their disciplines by providing financial incentives and opportunities for professional growth.
-Invest in the equipment, technology and training that will bring advantages to our clients that are unavailable from any other firm in our region.

We strongly believe that your peers are your greatest resource — whether they are recent graduates bringing a fresh approach to the work we do or they are a long-time team member providing guidance that only hands-on experience can bring.
