With over 30 years of transportation experience, Joe has been directly involved in street, highway, bridge, and airport projects. He’s developed roadway design plans for the Ohio and West Virginia Departments of Transportation, as well as many counties and cities throughout Ohio.
As a young engineer involved in day-to-day design, Joe loved showing his daughters his finished projects. (His wife joked that he had more pictures of his first bridge than their first child.) Now that his work predominately involves managing people and clients, Joe takes pleasure in the relationships he’s built over the years. A simple bit of wisdom that he lives by, “almost everything in leadership comes back to relationships.” So often overlooked, yet so very important.
Joe spent much of his childhood and teen years playing all types of sports. These days, he indulges his love of sports through a passion for photography. He gets back into the games by playing photographer for local high schools and youth leagues, though his own athleticism is pretty much limited to golf now.
