CPJ Announces New Director of Maryland Operations!
Dr. Haitham Hijazi joins CPJA as their new Director of Maryland Operations and brings over 32 years of experience in the engineering and land surveying industry. He served as Operation Manager at ATCS after serving over 25 years in several leadership roles in Prince George’s County Government, first at the County’s Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) and then at the Department of Permitting, Inspection and Enforcement (DPIE). At DPW&T, he directed and was responsible for as many as 450 employees and strove to ensure the highest degree of public service in the County’s public roadway system, public transit systems, and storm drainage infrastructure.
Haitham’s major career accomplishment was overhauling and consolidating Prince George’s County permitting, inspection, and enforcement processes that were scattered across seven agencies and offices into a one-stop center now known as DPIE.
Haitham holds a bachelor, master, and doctorate degrees in civil engineering with a focus in structural engineering. He is a licensed professional civil engineer and a professional land surveyor. A long-time resident of Bowie, his proudest achievement to date is creating a Community Partners Program in Prince George’s County where he and other local government officials held quarterly meetings with all county civic associations, active citizens, homeowner associations, and constituents in a forum open to the public to address their concerns and provide direct citizen access to government officials and services.
“Haitham brings with him, integrity, technical expertise, client knowledge, and a track record of highly successful leadership. I am confident that this will only improve our strong reputation and goal to be the best engineering company in the industry,” says Paul Johnson, CEO, CPJ & Associates.
CPJ is excited to welcome Haitham to the team and looks forward to providing our clients and partners continued superior land planning, civil and environmental engineering, and surveying services. Please help us welcome Haitham to the CPJ Team! You may reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
