Prime recently rewarded two top employees with promotions, appointing Chase Bailey to Vice President and Director of its Industrial Market Segment and Adam Weible to Vice President and Director, Growth. Both Bailey and Weible work in Prime’s Huntington, West Virginia office, and the promotions reflect Prime’s growing national footprint in the Architecture, Engineering, & Construction (AEC) industry.
“Prime Engineering has grown rapidly by bringing outstanding talent into our firm,” said Brandon Enochs, Chief Operating Officer at Prime. “Today, we’re delighted to promote some of that talent into important positions for the future of this firm. Chase and Adam worked together before joining Prime and they bring important technical and business knowledge to our leadership team as we continue to grow the Prime footprint from Atlanta to Huntington to Pittsburgh and beyond. We’re pleased to put them into a position of influence to help our clients achieve their objectives.”
Bailey was promoted from head of the Electrical and Controls Department, while Weible rose from his Regional Manager position. Both have been responsible for the rapid expansion of Prime’s Huntington office, an office that began in the basement of Weible’s home, moved to a storefront office in Huntington in 2019 with four staff, and is now a full-fledged facility with 19 employees and counting.
Bailey brought his electrical engineering talent to Prime in 2019, offering a 15-year history of success in the steel, special alloys, coal, and natural gas industries. An experienced design engineer, he has extensive familiarity with designing power distribution and control systems and technical support throughout all phases of Prime’s projects. Importantly for Prime’s clients, Bailey has grown the Electrical Department into one of Prime Engineering’s strongest and most well-respected disciplines.
“I love what I do. I love where I work. I love the people with whom I work,” said Bailey. “It means a lot for me to be able to remain close to my roots while building a professional services firm that serves the entire country. Our work and region will benefit, and I look forward to continuing to grow our electrical engineering expertise by adding to Prime’s workforce here in Huntington and elsewhere.”
Adam Weible, a licensed Professional Engineer in several states, joined Prime almost four years ago. During his tenure at Prime, he has significantly grown the Huntington office and numerous strategic accounts throughout the country. As the Chair of the Civil Engineering Advisory Board at Huntington’s Marshall University, Weible sees real potential for the area and Marshall graduates. He also sees real opportunity for growth in other regions of the US. “This is a relationship business and it’s great to match great people at Prime with great clients. It’s kind of like destiny,” Weible said. “I want to apply what I’ve learned thus far to where we’re going as a company. I see tremendous potential to build upon what we’ve already accomplished.”
