The Dobbins Group's Alex Vaysman has always had to adapt to different situations, something he now applies that to his design-build work in Chicago. Born in Belarus, Alex moved every three years with his Army father and came to this area in high school. He earned a college internship building a Holocaust museum in Israel by sending in his resume, along with a paid-for plane ticket and arrangements to rent an apartment. Then he learned to adjust to language and cultural differences on the job.
Alex found familiar flexibility in Dobbins and how it adjusts to fit clients' needs rather than convincing them to buy into a design. With the recently-added general contracting function, he's also becoming an expert on the build side, plus he's gained the firm business, such as a new office build-out in an industrial flex building in Sauk Village.
