Brian Welker

Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (COO)

“Relationships with our clients that transcend beyond the project have been key to our business and success at CMT,” says Brian. “It’s really rewarding when a client tells you they know they’re not the only client our team works for, but the team makes them feel that way.”

Prior to assuming COO responsibilities, Brian provided leadership for CMT’s aviation services in the Chicago/Northern Illinois region, with experience providing professional services to the vast majority of airports there, most of whom we have served continuously over several decades. “We provide an excellent group of dedicated professionals focused on providing innovative solutions and doing the right thing for our clients,” says Brian. “Our ability to navigate the various funding programs and regulatory requirements allows us to really bring value to helping our clients achieve their goals.”

Brian is also responsible for making sure CMT is continually enhancing the way we work and serve our clients. “We continue to advance the utilization of technology to improve collaboration, as well as the project delivery process and core business practices. We are also engaged to seek new and innovative ways to integrate technology into the built environment.”

Brian has recently been appointed to the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), Illinois Chapter’s Board of Directors.  He will serve until 2022.
