We are thrilled to announce the start of our 2024 Fire Program, and introduce our newest members: Stephen Salamone and Maria Brown!

The Focused Intense Rotational Education (FIRE) Program was created to strengthen our talent by providing opportunities to contribute across HWI business and operations disciplines. Allowing members to gain first-hand experience across a broad range of functions and departments, the program provides graduates with challenging developmental assignments designed to quickly build new skills and contribute to the organization. FIRE members take part in complex projects, receive on-the-job training, learn our business, and build their network throughout our organization.
