Sewall hires Bondeson as civil staff engineer

WOODLAND and OLD TOWN, Maine — The James W. Sewall Company announced Feb. 6 that Finn Bondeson, originally from Woodland, has joined the firm’s Engineering group as a civil staff engineer.

Bondeson is a 2014 graduate of the University of Maine’s College of Engineering, and received its Top Scholar award.

As an undergraduate at UMaine, Bondeson worked as a research assistant in potato genetics at the University’s Cooperative Extension. During the summers, he served as a full-time paid intern, first in the environmental department at Civil Engineering Services, Inc., and later at Stantec Consulting, Inc., where he inspected and revised engineering drawings for aviation infrastructure projects, inspected construction, and updated permits for airport improvement projects.

In his native Aroostook County, he also labored on his family’s organic farm, managing the fall potato harvest crew, and caring for annual and perennial flowering plants, trees and shrubs in its gardens and greenhouses.

During the past several years, he took time off from the professional arena to work in the service industries in Jackson, Wyoming and environs, until his love of Maine called him back.

Sewall’s Director of Engineering Brett Hart said. “We are fortunate to have such a promising engineer join our staff. Finn’s keen analytical mind, problem solving abilities, energy, and attention to detail are an excellent fit for Sewall.”
