Eric Webber has been named as our newest Operations Manager at Morrison-Maierle. This is a new position, and Eric will serve as the office’s first OM.

From the beginning of Eric’s career at Morrison-Maierle, he’s been a leader and seen by many to embody our Core Values of integrity, commitment, respect, and excellence. Our selection committee noted Eric’s exceptional relationship-building skills and ability to bring out the best in people. Whether a client or a fellow employee-owner, he can see people’s strengths and uses this skill to make connections to build effective teams. As many of us know, Eric is friendly, approachable, and can talk to anybody.

Prior to graduating from MSU in 2012, Eric was a part-time intern in the Bozeman office. He started working at Morrison-Maierle shortly after graduation. In 2017, he moved to the Missoula office and then to Bend in July 2020. He has displayed an entrepreneurial spirit by relocating to further Morrison-Maierle’s presence in a market sector and/or location, which ultimately led to him advancing his career at Morrison-Maierle.

With each move, Eric has steadily increased his relationships with peers and clients and built Morrison-Maierle’s presence in the communities where he’s lived and worked. He’s seen as a leader in his profession both within the company and with our clients and partners. As the Bend Buildings MGOL, Eric has been the go-to person in central Oregon and steadily built our business in the area. As one of two employee-owners when the office opened in 2020, he has helped grow our numbers to 13 employee-owners to date.

As a mechanical engineer, Eric has experience in analyzing and designing HVAC and hydronic systems, plumbing systems, and sustainable design. He works on educational, research and development, industrial, commercial, and residential facilities for new and renovation/retrofit projects.

Outside of Morrison-Maierle, Eric is a member of the Montana State University Mechanical & Industrial Engineering Advisory Committee, graduated from Leadership Missoula and Leadership Bend, and recently joined the Deschutes County Public Library Foundation Board of Directors. When not at work, he and his wife enjoy introducing their daughters to Oregon’s outdoor life.
