Bowman Consulting Opens California Office

Company continues steady growth plan with national expansion

CHANTILLY, Va., July 31, 2012 — Bowman Consulting announced today the formation of a strategic alliance with Bay Area–based JMH Weiss, resulting in the opening of an office in San Jose—Bowman’s 18th office. Founded in 1956, JMH Weiss is a leading land development consultant in San Jose and throughout the Bay Area.

“This continues our course of planned and deliberate national expansion, and our San Jose office will be a terrific platform from which to serve California as well as the entire West Coast,” said Gary Bowman, president of Northern Virginia–based Bowman Consulting. “We see this as a natural market for our infrastructure and renewable energy consulting services, and we look forward to being contributing members of the local community.”

The move is part of Bowman’s plan to position itself as a leading national design firm. Execution of this plan has resulted in an annual growth rate of over 20 percent and has propelled Bowman to its status as a top 250 design firm, as ranked by Engineering News-Record.

“Both organizations share like cultures and values, making this a natural fit,” said Kevin Weiss, CEO of JMH Weiss. “By joining forces, we now possess a broad array of services and a depth of resources that, along with our long-time presence in the community, enable us to provide an unmatched level of service to our clients.”

DJ Edwards has joined Bowman to serve as branch manager of its San Jose office. Edwards, a long-time member of the JMH Weiss team, has over 15 years of consulting, design and management experience throughout the Bay Area. Weiss and Eva Cabico, who most recently served as JMH Weiss’ COO, will continue their senior leadership roles, providing continuity and further enhancing Bowman’s ties to the area.
