Early Career

Riding the rails to One Williams

Staff Reports

My name is Matt and I am a 2012 graduate of Penn State University. I started at Williams in December of 2014 as a Plant Project Engineer in the Engineering & Construction group in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

They say it takes a village to raise a child, and it turns out it also takes One Williams to raise a project engineer.  We have a saying at Williams that we are all “One Williams.” Essentially we’re one family focused on a common goal: be a world class organization, focused on efficiency, customer reliability, and above all – safety.


Matt led a project that added six rail loading bays to our Moundsville, WV fractionator facility.

I recently completed my first project as an engineering project lead and I was very excited to finally be able to have my own project from start to finish. The scope of the project had all of the fun parts and pieces: civil site work, railway expansion, and six additional rail loading bays; all within a live plant.

As a chemical engineer, one would expect that I’d be well versed in all types of engineering but I’m only one man and I only know so much. However, for every shortcoming I had, there were multiple people within the Williams organization willing to help me develop my strengths. Working with numerous experts in their fields, I’ve started developing every type of skill imaginable: corporate financials and my personal impact; project and construction management; and strong technical and operational concepts.

The Williams organization can achieve great things when we all pull together and focus on a common goal. We are an organization that is truly built to help you learn and succeed and I am proud to work for such a development-oriented company.  Come join the One Williams team and begin your development today!
