NPE is committed to provide our projects with the necessary management team to pull from its past experience of work performed as well as the safety and certified specialists, the office personnel to see that administrative aspects of work flow smoothly and a single point of contact for our clients.

Jim & Arbe Williams

Jim and Arbe are the two stockholders of the company.  Jim is a union ironworker and brings this experience to the business which has been in operation since 1978. Jim inherently has a vested interest in the success of all projects and is involved in an advisory capacity to the company’s project management team.

Arbe is responsible for the overall financial management of the company and has been fulfilling this role since 1978.  She also brings seventeen years of administrative experience with the State of Alaska, leaving in 1998 at which time she had served as Director of Administrative Services with the Department of Labor and Workforce Development for the preceding four years.
