People of Willow: Kyle Wattula

PostedWillow Team

Hey there Kyle, tell us a little about your role at Willow.

I am a Director of Delivery who focuses on the Innovate Twin solution. This allows me to be across many projects of a similar delivery. I enjoy the opportunity to drive consistency, lead expectations and more importantly, grow teammates through project systems, processes, and coaching.

What attracted you to your role at Willow?

I met Willow on a complex commercial real estate project. The Willow team and I connected very well as we constantly found ourselves negotiating the value of deliverables, work plans and processes. Willow’s core value of enabling owners with healthy, data-rich as-built project information for enabling operations really resonates with me! It was an easy transition to join the Willow team the following year. I particularly enjoy Willow’s global footprint and international perspectives as contributions to all aspects of our work.

What kind of projects are you currently working on?

My project profile includes the Innovate Twin solution. We are typically relying on rich project information coming from the supply chain during the Design & Construction phase of a building’s lifecycle. These projects aggregate unique work streams of Managed Asset Data, BIM Data & Live (OT) Data to become a WillowTwin™.

There is so much knowledge, experience, and smart folks in these teams – I always have something to learn!

What has been your biggest learning or opportunity you’ve had since being at Willow?

Willow has been on a tremendous transformation and growth trajectory since I started. My biggest learning opportunity has absolutely been Willow’s transition into a software company. That industry experience with all its nuances, norms, and fundamental differences to the AEC industry has provided invaluable growth. Willow is in prime position to be The Digital Twin for the built world.

What do you find most exciting about working in tech?

I am working for a company leading the charge on an industry solution, which I am personally passionate about. It is extremely rewarding to contribute to the products’ development and experience new features in real time. The cross-pollination of AEC & software is also very exciting, as the software industry is a leader in adoption and change management. Willow is quick, nimble, and can strategically pivot as needed.

What do you love most about working at Willow? What has your experience been with our company culture?

Willow has enabled me to maintain a work-life balance and remote working plan that best supports my needs. The last few years have been challenging for everyone. It’s a world of difference when an employer supports the best interest of you and your family. Thank you, Willow. I’m eager for meetups and socials when the time is right. Until then, let’s keep supporting each other, advancing the industry, building teams, and creating Willow digital twins!
