American Society of Civil Engineers Orange County Branch Names John Hogan, P.E., LEED AP, as Engineer of the Year

My colleagues and I were thrilled to learn that our CEO, John Hogan, was named the ASCE Orange County Branch Engineer of the Year. 

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Orange County Branch is part of the nationwide ASCE organization whose mission is to provide essential value to its members and partners, advance civil engineering, and serve the public good.  The Engineer of the Year award honors an individual for outstanding professional qualities and reputation for engineering leadership and accomplishments. This is similar to a life time achievement award in that the entire career of the winner is recognized.

I interviewed John to get his thoughts about being named Engineer of the Year. Highlights of that interview include him being honored and humbled by the recognition.  The engineering community in Orange County has one of the highest concentration of civil engineers in the nation, so to be singled out is truly a privilege. John noted that the list of past winners reads like a Who’s Who of engineers in Orange County and being associated with such a distinguished group is extremely flattering.    

Throughout John’s 37-year engineering career, he has managed design teams for numerous residential and commercial developments and public works projects throughout Orange County.  Notable among these are Metro Pointe in Costa Mesa, Ladera Ranch in south Orange County, and Koll Center in Irvine.  As CEO of HFI, Mr. Hogan has the honor of leading the firm through its 50th year of operation.  He is currently serving as the President-Elect for the ASCE Los Angeles Section and is past president of the ASCE Orange County Branch. In addition, he is active in numerous professional associations and societies, including the Building Industry Association Orange County Chapter’s Board of Directors.

Congratulations John!  Your Hall & Foreman team is delighted to see you recognized for your technical experience, community service, engineering accomplishments, and commitment to making our communities a better place to live, work, and play.
