Daniel R. Meckes, PE

Board Chair

Dan is the Chair of CMT’s Board of Directors. Joining CMT in 1983, Dan built his CMT career focused on transportation infrastructure. Prior to becoming president in 2007, he was instrumental in expanding our presence in Missouri, with the growth of the office in St. Louis, and has since continued CMT’s commitment to the Show-Me State with additional offices in Springfield and Kansas City.

For Dan, it comes down to the firm’s culture.

“I am so proud to work alongside a group of people that genuinely care about each other, our clients and the communities where we live and work,” says Dan. “Developing relationships that last a lifetime—with both our employees and clients—is what truly excites me.”

Dan is also highly engaged with federal, state and local leaders on sustainable infrastructure funding. He stresses that, “as engineers and design professionals, it’s vitally important that we help educate others on the issues.” He has also provided industry leadership on priorities of diversity including STEM-focused initiatives.

In addition to serving on ACEC committees, he was the 2016-2017 ACEC-Missouri Board Chair. He also serves as the Chairperson for the Sustainable Funding of Infrastructure Group ($FIG) in Illinois.
