Effective August 24, 2020, Mike Croce has been promoted to Highway Practice Leader for the Northeast Infrastructure Group at national architecture, engineering and planning firm Bergmann. Croce, a 22-year veteran of the firm, will succeed Mark McAnany in the role. McAnany will transition into a Principal role, focusing on client and government relations, integration across the practices comprising Bergmann’s Northeast Infrastructure group, and other strategic responsibilities.
Bergmann’s Northeast Highway Practice collaborates with clients from Departments of Transportation to counties and municipalities, to provide a range of transportation engineering services. Among Croce’s goals in his new role is expanding the practice into additional markets across New York State and the Northeast region.
“I see a greater purpose in the work we do that goes beyond creating plans and meeting specs. We’re working together to make a better world through infrastructure that makes communities safer and enhances quality of life,” says Croce. “I’m grateful for Mark’s guidance and leadership over the past two decades and look forward to leading the team as we continue to deliver innovative and meaningful solutions.”
Most recently a senior project manager for the NE Infrastructure practice, Croce has played an integral part in building Bergmann’s portfolio of award-winning transportation and highway projects.

He provided traffic engineering and detailed design expertise in support of the reconstruction of Exit 122 on NY Route 17 in Middletown, New York and helped develop an Environmental Impact Statement with a vision to transform the Scajaquada Expressway Corridor in Buffalo.
“In addition to his skills as a versatile technical expert, Mike is a thoughtful leader to our team, and trusted advisor to our clients,” said McAnany. “His promotion to this new role is a natural transition to further grow Bergmann’s Northeast Highway Practice.”
