Four years ago, John Kovacs, PE, PMP, D.GE, F.ASCE, became one of the youngest Diplomates in the Academy.  He recently was elected to Gannett Fleming’s Board of Directors and is also one of the youngest to have reached that level.  In 1995, he joined Gannett Fleming as a geotechnical engineer in the Pittsburgh, PA office.  He was named Young Civil Engineer of the Year by ASCE’s Pittsburgh Section.  He earned his PMP credential in 2002 and became a Fellow of ASCE in 2010.
