Chief Engineer at Illinois Tollway Joins Bowman

Paul Kovacs is joining Bowman as a principal, civil engineer and key leader for the Lisle, IL and Chicago offices. He’ll play an integral role in providing insights into prospective clients’ needs and expectations, building partnerships with other project stakeholders, and developing successful strategies for Bowman’s pursuit of infrastructure projects, not only in the Chicago area, but nationwide as well.

Kovacs has spent the past 22 years as the chief engineering officer with the Illinois Tollway. In that capacity, he provided monthly board presentations and oversaw an average of $1 billion in annual capital expenditures along with an $85-million annual engineering management & operations budget.

“We are excited that Paul is joining Bowman,” said SVP Michael Hannemann with Bowman. “He is a top-level engineering professional with a reputation for excellence and a vast knowledge of the transportation industry. He will make a great addition to our team.”
