About Vishnu Reddi

I began my full-time professional career in 2004, for a small Tier 1 supplier to the auto industry. I interned with them while pursuing my Master’s at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. I was recruited by Jacobs Engineering and joined them in 2006. My main role was to lead teams to update manufacturing facilities to meet cGMP standards and build new ones for my clients. This gave me the opportunity to travel to various locations in the country and perform some unique projects in creating built environments around the nation for the food and pharmaceutical industries. I continued this work for household brands such as Kellogg’s, Con-Agra Brands, Medtronic, Target Corporation, Novartis, and GlaxoSmithKline.

After 14 years in the industry, I joined the faculty at the University of Nebraska. I live in Lincoln with my wife and family.
