Director of Phoenix Operations | Higher Ed Practice Director Marcus Sanchez began his career at Henderson Engineers at the tender age of 19 as an eager intern; he’s now vice president and leading our Phoenix office. His multidisciplinary training and experience allow him to work across practices and varying scales of projects. Marcus prides himself on being a great listener — giving clients and team members his primary attention — while also gathering facts and providing effective solutions that pull together what everybody was thinking. This skill has made him invaluable to clients, with the ability to decipher what architects and Owners desire and merge it with what’s constructible and sustainable. In addition to running the Phoenix office, Marcus is also our higher education practice director and helps mentor the next generation of higher education leaders within our company. He is a mentor at home, too. Along with his wife, this devoted family man recently expanded his home and his heart with additions to his biological, adoptive, and fostered family.
