On Tuesday, November 10, delegates from Delaware Valley engineering-related technical societies and several past Engineers of the Year gathered for the annual Engineer of the Year election. During this assembly, Kevin L. Johnson, P.E., President of TPD, an award-winning transportation engineering firm with eight offices serving the Mid-Atlantic Region, was elected the 2016 Delaware Valley Engineer of the Year.
Engineer of the Year is a prestigious annual award presented by the Engineer’s Club of Philadelphia. The award recognizes an individual who has pursued a career of achievement and leadership, is a person of stature and visibility, represents the engineering profession well and proudly acclaims its virtues. Mr. Johnson will be honored during Delaware Valley Engineers Week, Feb. 19-27, 2016, which is part of a national engineering observance.
Mr. Johnson’s support was overwhelming, as he was nominated by several industry organizations including: the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) Delaware Valley Chapter, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Philadelphia Chapter, the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers (PSPE) Delaware County Chapter, and Women in Transportation (WTS) Philadelphia Chapter. Upon learning of his selection, Mr. Johnson said “it is truly humbling to be so honored when reviewing the esteemed list of past Engineers of the Year.”
