RISA Employee Spotlight: Nate Sperle

Nate S2

Nate Sperle is a Technical Sales Engineer with RISA and has been with the company since May 2020. After receiving a BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Portland, he worked as a structural engineer & salesperson at ADAPT specializing in post-tensioned concrete structures including; podiums, hotels, foundation systems and more. He even had the opportunity to play a role in the iconic 55 Hudson Yards project located in New York City!

Nate's transition to software sales has allowed him to help clients find the best solutions for their unique structural challenges, while still being able to utilize his technical engineering skills. For Nate, there is never a dull moment and no two days are the same, making his role both equally challenging and rewarding.

A fanatic for rare/vintage cars, Nate is currently working on installing a new engine and turbocharger in his 1991 Volkswagen GTI. When he's not rebuilding engines, he enjoys spending time with his wife and is currently watching "The 100" and "Ozark" on Netflix.
