FORT WAYNE, IN – Back in 1992, three young men sat down with a dream and lots of ambition – Pat Pasterick, Ron Dick, and Terry Wagner. 30 years later, their legacy lives on as a thriving, energetic multi-disciplinary design firm – Design Collaborative (DC). Wagner – the engineering legend – is the first of the three founding partners to become partner emeritus, as he is officially retiring.

Wagner's depth of knowledge and expertise in the engineering world is a rare find, but his good heart and effervescent personality will be the hardest shoes for DC to fill. His legacy will live on at DC in the form of a conference room newly crowned “Mallards Landing” after Wagner's love for ducks, as well as his occasional visit back in the office.

“Terry has always set a high bar for the quality of design and service provided to clients which he has been able to model and instill this commitment and dedication in many others who now are leaders in the company," said Pasterick, CEO & one of the three founding partners. "As his partner and his friend, I have always admired his courage, his integrity, and his selflessness. He’ll be missed at DC, but all of these traits will live on through the others he has touched here, myself included.”
