Mike Cowherd

Prefabtrication Manager
Helix Employee since 2013

I served four years active-duty in the Marine Corps and 3 years reserve-duty in the California National Guard before I entered the electrical trade. In the Marine Corps, I was a mortar man in an Infantry Battalion and in the National Guard, I was a Scout for a Tank Battalion. After leaving the military, I entered into the electrical construction industry. I enjoyed working with my hands and the sense of accomplishment in bringing a job to completion. In the 25 years that I have been in the construction industry, my military experience has been the foundation on which I have built a successful career. Helix is a very goal oriented company with tremendous growth opportunities and the culture really cultivates individual efforts that feed the team goal—much like a military unit’s culture.

William Sin

Project Engineer
Helix Employee since 2014

I came to Helix as an intern hired through their veteran hiring program. I stayed on with Helix because of the high caliber of people that I met here. Before I joined the Company I spent 6 years in the Navy operating nuclear reactors on submarines. Even with that experience it is my opinion that you would be hard pressed to find a team of people more motivated, talented, and committed to success than you will at Helix.

Lacy Billingsley

Assistant Project Manager
Helix Employee since 2012

I began a career with Helix right after graduating from college. In the last four years, Helix has facilitated my growth as a professional and, even more importantly, as an overall human being. I have always felt the freedom to speak my mind and take on more responsibility. Teaming with individuals from diverse backgrounds has positively broadened my view of the world we share. Diversity coupled with high expectations naturally yields our expertise of innovation and hard work in this intensely competitive industry.

Chris Cunningham

Project Manager
Helix Employee since 2012

I joined the Helix team four years ago, starting as a Project Engineer. The decision to make a lateral move to Helix was greatly enhanced by the huge opportunity for growth, and it is a decision that I would make again without any hesitation. Helix is unique in the way that it promotes a spirit of entrepreneurship that is combined with a high level of accountability. I also feel very grateful to have worked along-side some very supportive people who have mentored me along the way, and who’ve also inspired me to perform at a higher level towards achieving success.
