Notable Women in Engineering: Kristi Linsmeier

Class of 2022

Kristi Linsmeier is environmental engineering group leader for Milwaukee-based The Sigma Group, where she directs a multi-discipline staff in assisting clients with regulatory compliance and permitting issues, indoor air quality assessments and process-related engineering tasks. 

“Kristi’s diligent approach over the years has earned her a reputation as one of the state’s go-to individuals for regulatory risk management programs. She brings a highly disciplined and organized approach to her work and her clients, which is imperative given the high risk associated with regulatory compliance,” said Kenneth Kaszubowski, president of The Sigma Group.

Linsmeier has been with the 31-year-old firm for 28 years, starting out as an intern while attending the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee as an engineering undergraduate. Recently, she was assigned the responsibility of integrating a merger between The Sigma Group and Rivers Bend Engineering in Sturtevant.

Linsmeier has led Sigma’s efforts to stay engaged during the COVID-19 pandemic, leading the “culture, connect, communicate” initiative, ensuring that staff stay aware and informed on business, client and internal activity while working remotely, Kaszubowski said.
