creative services. We are working on several websites and marketing campaigns including an entire branding and website design campaign for a Floridabased defense firm and a local building contractor. Another WGI innovation was the development of an “alligator cage” to protect surveyors working in canals, lakes and wetland areas. “We do a great many projects within the South Florida Water Management District canal right-of-ways and we want our employees to be safe,” LaMotte said. Speaking of “gators,” WGI has made a $100,000 commitment to the University of Florida (UF) Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences’ Geomatics Program. “The demand for qualified licensed surveyors is greater than the supply in Florida and across the
nation,” said Wantman, a UF graduate. “That prompted us to support the University of Florida’s efforts to make the Geomatics Program the best in the nation through academic excellence, leading-edge technology, and high educational standards.” WGI was recently recognized by UF as one of the state’s top 100 Gatorowned companies. WGI has an active recruiting and summer internship program for college students interested in engineering careers. “We have built an extensive social media platform to showcase our firm’s culture and the quality of life in Palm Beach County,” LaMotte said. “Having an exciting career in a great place to live is a winning combination for professionals of any age.”
