James A. Brethauer

Project Manager
I grew up around surveying as my Dad was a surveyor at Gateway for 59 years. He would often tell me about the different types of projects he was working on and take me to various project sites. Through that exposure, I gained an interest at a young age, and decided to build my career in the surveying and engineering field. At Gateway, I am a Project Manager and oversee a variety of survey projects, and work with other Project Managers and various team members to provide quality services that meet the needs of my clients.

I have spent my entire career at Gateway, growing in the profession and learning from the coworkers I’ve had the privilege of working with over the years.

When I am not at work, I enjoy doing different types of projects around the house, going on road trips with my wife and family, and anything around water: boating, swimming, and going to the beach.
