ESD Promotes Nearly Two Dozen Employees

ESD always enjoys promoting from within. This year, 21 employees have moved up at the firm – and three of those employees were promoted to Level 5.

Jose Orta, Studio Leader, has been vital to the success of WPS as a project manager supporting recent high-profile clients such as BMO, LinkedIn and HERE. In addition, he has successfully assisted with the building initiative program as he is an advocate for several buildings within Chicagoland.

Todd Frederick, Technical Authority, has been a pivotal team member within WPS for the last six years, namely supporting and solidifying ESD’s relationship with a large confidential financial services firm.
