Bernard Held, PE

Senior Vice President and Water Resources Adviser

With CMT since 1973, Bernie is a source of wisdom and guidance for clients and employees alike. Recently passing down the baton of leadership as Director of Water Resources, he continues to help our team as an adviser as we continue to improve upon the planning, engineering and management skills that CMT is known to command.

Bernie brings extensive experience in water and wastewater infrastructure, having participated in or led numerous projects for water and wastewater treatment, collection systems, pump systems, water supply, and stormwater infrastructure for communities, sanitary districts and airports.

“It’s important for us to consider all the parameters necessary, given that such infrastructure is intended to last for so many years.”

Bernie is proud that he has been able to help so many clients better serve their communities and grateful that he found a consulting firm that shares his values.

“CMT does the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason. Having had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of staff and to get to know them on a personal level, it is difficult to imagine a finer place to make and, for me, to spend a career.”
