Arno Leskinen

Senior Project Manager and Tennis Expert

Tell us about your hobby.
I have been a serious tennis player for most of my life and continue to compete in sectional and national tournaments. A fun fact is that I was a “Sports Illustrated Face in the Crowd” back in high school for winning 56 consecutive matches and two state championships without losing a set. These days I enjoy the social aspect of the game as much if not more than the competitive side.

What is your chosen discipline? Why do you love it?
My discipline is Civil Engineering. I love it because it is such a diverse field with many opportunities. During my career, I have been lucky enough to have worked in Infrastructure Rehabilitation, Water/Wastewater, Facilities Management, and Oil/Petrochemicals. Plus, Civil Engineering is a field where your projects tend to result in a positive impact to the public.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I have been fortunate that over the years my work has taken me to places that I probably would have not visited otherwise, like the Middle East and India. Although I have been to 14 different countries, I have never been south of the Equator, so I would love to go to Australia and New Zealand.

What’s one thing you’re learning now, and why is it important?
I saw a bumper sticker once that said, “Life is not a Dress Rehearsal”. I am learning to appreciate and enjoy every moment for what it is, while at the same time looking forward to new challenges and adventures.
