Assistant Division Director, Region South Operations
New Jersey Department of Transportation
One Executive Campus Route 70 West, 2nd Fl Cherry Hill, NJ 08002
Short Bio: I been working in the Transportation industry (Civil Engineering/Project Management/Construction and Operations and Maintenance) for the last 32+ years. My first 30+ years of experience started in the Civil Engineering/Project Management/Construction arena in the private consultant sector in Site Development and Bridge design and inspection disciplines. I then moved to the Public sector working for a County Engineering-DPW which included the management, oversight and completion of planned public infrastructure projects, as well as emergency response and repair of public infrastructure found by inspection or damaged as a result of storms and/or natural disasters.
My 2+ years of experience in the Operations and Maintenance arena of Transportation is currently ongoing. As Assistant Division Director of Region South Operations and Maintenance for the NJDOT, I oversee a team of 269 employees and am responsible for Regional operations (Winter and severe weather, EOC), maintenance (roadway, bridge, drainage, guiderail), equipment (service/repair of Regional fleet), and electrical (service/repair signals and lighting). In addition, I serve as an Advisor to Departmental employees who are “mentoring” other employees working towards attaining their NJ PE Licenses.
As for my academic background, I obtained an AAS in Civil/Construction Engineering Technology in 1987 at Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, New Jersey. I then went on to attend Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia and obtained my BS CET in Civil Engineering Technology in 1989. I have been a licensed New Jersey Professional Engineer since August 6, 1996.
I am sure I have chosen the right profession and career to suit my personal attributes and I have a passion for what I do and have done; of course that’s not to say a career in the MLB or a successful music band might have taken precedence – if I only had the talents!
