Ms. Inman is the President & CEO of Primera Engineers. She has nearly 25 years of electrical engineering experience in the utility, higher education and industrial markets. Ultimately charged with overseeing all aspects of the firm, she remains actively involved in the day-to-day operations of our power delivery teams.

With a desire to make a difference, she joined Primera in 2003 where she was tasked with building a power delivery team. Since joining the company, Primera has more than doubled in size and she has grown the Power division into a national business with a reputation for quality design and superb service. Passionate about all that we stand for, she acquired the company from co-founders Michael DeSantiago and Pedro Cevallos-Candau when they retired in early 2016.

Ms. Inman is regularly promoting women in engineering to various women’s groups and works with children’s groups to teach them about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) and how cool engineering can be. As a board member for New Life for Haiti, a program devoted to providing education for underprivileged children, she spends a great deal of her time with child sponsorship. The program provides an opportunity for children, who otherwise could not afford to attend school.
