Meet Permit Coordinator Shannon Dembeck

Say hello to Shannon Dembeck, who joined the IBS team as a Permit Coordinator in 2015.

Each day in the Permitting and CAD department, Shannon nimbly manages right-of-way applications, easement research, and communications with area municipalities so that clients' projects are in compliance with local code requirements.

Her focus: Create value

Shannon's focus is on creating value and delivering it to her highest ability. "With that thought being top-of-mind every day, it ensures that my clients' projects move forward and stay on or ahead of schedule," she said.

While working in a high-tech industry, Shannon values personal interactions with clients. She explained: "It's always great when we can foster personal relationships with clients. As a recent addition to the IBS team, it gives me the opportunity to put a face with a name, to get to know people I interact with daily, and to offer the best service possible."

"Dedicated" is the one word Shannon uses to describe herself. Her IBS colleagues agree, and add "vibrant, fun, conscientious, a quick study, and energetic."
