Mike Gramza, Bergmann’s Ohio Infrastructure Practice Leader, was given the honor of Northwest Ohio’s Engineer of the Year by The Toledo Chapter of the Ohio Society of Professional Engineers.
Mike will be honored at the Engineer of the Year luncheon in his hometown of Maumee, OH, on February 17th, and at the TSPE E-Week Banquet on February 20th.
Mike joined Bergmann in early 2019 after an impressive 32-year career at Ohio Dept of Transportation (ODOT), where he was instrumental in leading many of northwest Ohio’s most notable transportation improvement projects, including the Veterans’ Glass City Skyway bridge, an iconic cable-stayed bridge on I-280 in downtown Toledo. In fact, Mike was awarded the Citizen of the Month award from the Mayor of Toledo for his work on the bridge.
At Bergmann, in his role as Ohio Infrastructure Practice Leader, Mike is responsible for continuing to provide the transportation leadership to the region and throughout Ohio, while continuing to develop the firm’s next generation of engineers.
Mike operates out of the growing Toledo location of Bergmann, where he has already contributed to a steady flow of new projects.
“In his relatively short time here at Bergmann, Mike has already had an incredible impact on our clients and our team,” says Richard Chelotti, Senior Vice President, Operations. “His work ethic, ‘team-first’ attitude, collaboration and thirst for continuous knowledge and learning are important attributes, and ones that have clearly contributed to his success throughout his career. This honor of engineer of the year is well-deserved and we are lucky to have Mike on our team.”
Mike is a proud graduate of University of Toledo where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. He currently serves on the TMACOG (Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Government’s) Transportation Council and the ACEC (American Council of Engineering Companies) Transportation Committee.
The entire Bergmann team congratulates Mike on this accomplishment!
