Bowman Consulting Group has hired Jay Yenerich as Regional Chief Engineer for Transportation in Arizona.
With more than 25 years of statewide project management experience in transit, highway, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and signals, Yenerich is charged with developing Bowman’s public, municipal and private transportation practice in Arizona.
He served previously at CivTech, a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), where he led design for municipal and private projects across Arizona. As Manager of Capital Development for Valley Metro, Phoenix’s regional transit system, Yenerich managed negotiations of more than $50 million in design and construction projects. He was also responsible for all design packages that were released for construction for seven major projects including four rail extensions, 50th Street Station development, Tempe streetcar and a 780-kW solar project.
Bowman is “combining our established service expertise in the region with Jay’s Arizona transportation market knowledge to grow our public transportation and traffic practices in the state,” said Bruce Larson, Executive Vice President-Regional Manager of Bowman, an engineering services firm headquartered in Reston, Va., with 70 offices throughout the United States.
