Our People

Jessi Wagner

Associate General Counsel

How many years of experience do you have in this industry and with McGough? 
I have 6.5 years working in the construction industry, and approximately two of those years have been with McGough. 

What led you to your current role at McGough? 
In my previous role, I served as a Risk Manager. Because of my legal training, I wanted to find a role that allowed me to leverage both my legal and insurance background. A position with McGough was advertised requiring both, and I applied. 

What do you like most about your job? 
I love the variety. None of my days are the same. 

What do you enjoy most about the construction industry? 
I didn’t have a construction background before entering the industry, so I had to learn a lot. Some of my favorite moments are being out at project sites, learning more about a particular scope of work, and helping teams think through risk. To this day, I’m always learning new things from our project teams. 

Why do you enjoy working for McGough? 
I enjoy the people; we all take so much pride in what we do. 

What do you like to do in your free-time? 
I enjoy being outside, spending time with my family, traveling, trying new cuisine, and volunteering.
