Snohomish County Public Works Names New Transportation and Environmental Services (TES) Division Director
Interim TES Director Doug McCormick, P.E., appointed as director after the retirement of Bobann Fogard
EVERETT, Wash., November 23, 2016 – With 31 years of experience working in the arena of Public Works, Doug McCormick, P.E., has been promoted by Snohomish County Public Works as its new director of Transportation and Environmental Services (TES). McCormick, who previously held the position of interim TES director, assumes the role immediately. The appointment comes after the retirement of longtime TES Director and Interim County Engineer Bobann Fogard.
“Doug’s years of experience with Snohomish County Public Works and his knowledge of local and regional challenges related to transportation, funding and project delivery is a strong asset for our department,” said Public Works Director Steve Thomsen. “We look forward to having him join our Public Works management team in planning for the county’s future.”
McCormick has worked in a variety of capacities during his tenure with Public Works including design engineer, project manager, construction manager, and program planning and environmental services manager. In addition to his work for Public Works, he has served regionally for many years with the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) serving as a member on the Regional Project Evaluation Committee and several subcommittees. He also held the position of interim chair of the Snohomish County Infrastructure Coordinating Committee (ICC). Both organizations manage millions of dollars in Federal Highway Administration road funding each year for Snohomish County and its cities.
“Snohomish County’s strong partnerships and inter-agency coordination help to ensure we use our resources wisely and build our transportation network sustainably,” said Dave Somers, Snohomish County Executive. “Doug’s steady leadership and relationships with key transportation partners will help us do just that.”
