- About Us
As a senior consultant with FMI’s Center for Strategic Leadership, Ed is deeply committed to building exceptional leaders for the engineering, construction and design industries—one leader at a time. Ed’s primary work is with the CSL’s consulting practice, serving clients in seasons of transition and management succession. He is also a facilitator at the CSL’s Leadership Institute, a four-day interactive development course where industry leaders exercise and develop their unique leadership styles while learning how to leverage their style for real-world results. As an executive coach, Ed partners with leaders as they gain insight, learn new practices, change behaviors and increase effectiveness and satisfaction in all facets of life.
Ed has recently amplified the CSL’s ability to serve the industry by developing training resources for the development of field leaders and doing deep research on the global challenges of megaproject failures. Ed’s affinity for developing leaders comes out of his own experience of almost 30 years in executive leadership roles in nonprofit settings. He is deeply aware of the pressures and responsibilities that come with executive roles, and is uniquely qualified to accompany top leaders through seasons of growth and struggle on their journey toward greater success.
Ed received a bachelor's in communications from William Jewell College and is currently pursuing a master's degree in organizational development and leadership through Fielding University. Ed is certified in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Step I and Step II and the Pinsight Assessment and Simulation and he holds the Associate Certified Coach designation with International Coach Federation.
