Ken Long, PLS, founded Western Engineers & Surveyors, Inc. after serving in Special Forces during Vietnam. He is a Licensed Professional Surveyor and has over 40 years of experience providing multiple services to the local community. He was born and raised along the Washington/Idaho border, and has a love of the Pacific Northwest for all it has to offer. After meeting his wife in college and having children, he moved the family to Everett, received his Professional Surveyor License and hung his shingle as a Service Disabled Veteran. In his spare time, he plays outdoors whenever possible either snowmobiling, river rafting, or flying his piper airplane. If you miss him at the office midday, most times you can find him at a local Subway having what he claims are “the best sandwiches”…yuuummm. Email Ken Long

Timothy Sarkela, Corporate Engineer, leads the Engineering department and has been with WESI since 2014. As a Licensed Professional Engineer, he has become very experienced working with most jurisdictions throughout the Puget Sound region. Born and raised in the PNW, Tim is familiar with the history, and growth in the surrounding areas. In his spare time he enjoys immersing in his gaming community and spending time with his wife and dog.  Email Tim Sarkela

Mike Long, Survey Manager, has been with WESI since 2002, yet has been working in the land surveying industry for over 35 years. Mike oversees the LS department and coordinates the field crew scheduling. He has a keen eye for detail and places a great importance on customer satisfaction while building long term client relationships. Raised in the greater south Everett area, Mike moved out of state for a few short years to work for a large elevator company before returning to his roots, and shortly thereafter, starting his own family. In his free time, he enjoys riding motorcycles, trap shooting, and traveling abroad. Email Mike Long
