MICHAEL THOMAS NAMED PMI-NJ PROJECT MANAGER OF THE YEAR

June 4, 2018

MIDDLETOWN, NJ – T&M Associates, a leading national engineering and technical services consulting company, announced Site Development Group Manager Michael Thomas has been named Project Manager of the Year by the New Jersey Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI-NJ).

Since beginning his career in 2003, Thomas’ versatility, leadership, communication skills and commitment to client satisfaction have been among the hallmark traits that have helped him stand out in his field. Since joining T&M five years ago, Thomas has successfully managed 75 site development projects with budgets totaling nearly $5 million. He is an expert in project management controls – ensuring that projects remain on scope, schedule and budget – and conflict resolution. This driven 36-year-old finished 2017 with over $1 million in project management revenue and a positive combined project cost variance of 0.05%.

At T&M, Thomas has managed several key projects with regional significance, including ventures for schools, libraries, malls, solar farms, nursing centers, Class A office buildings and, more recently, a distinguished project. Thomas played a key role in the Fort Monmouth Myer Center Abatement, Demolition and Site Improvement Design which has won Honorable Mention by the PMI-NJ for Project of the Year. For this large-scale project ($275,800 approved design fee), Thomas led a complex 29-person design team covering various engineering disciplines, including site/civil, MEP, environmental site investigation, surveying and asbestos abatement. His management of this project and its adherence to scope, budget and an aggressive schedule resulted in exceeding client expectations for overall project delivery.

“Mike is widely respected for his work and is one of the most accomplished Project Managers at T&M,” said T&M Site Development Department Manager, Richard Moralle. “His success, passion, broad range of competencies, desire for continuous learning and willingness to help the next generation of engineers make him an excellent choice for PMI-NJ’s Project Manager of the Year Award. T&M couldn’t be prouder. “

Thomas is a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Ohio. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Penn State University in 2003 and a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology in 2013. In 2010, he was the first person in the State of New Jersey to obtain the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Accredited Professional certificate specializing in Neighborhood Development. After receiving the globally-recognized Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification in early 2016, Thomas has become a go-to resource for developing the next generation of PM’s through T&M’s Project Management Initiative.
