KCI has promoted Mehmet A. Boz, PhD, PE, ENV SP, to vice president. Boz will also take over leadership of the firm’s Environmental Discipline.

Over the course of his tenure with KCI, Boz’s responsibilities have included operational oversight and business development for civil engineering in Texas. He helped the firm secure its first water and wastewater design work in the state and is currently overseeing a team charged with the design of all utility relocations required for construction of the new Harbor Bridge in Corpus Christi.

Mehmet’s broad expertise, industry involvement and passion for business development have helped the firm secure a respected role in the environmental market in Texas. Across KCI’s entire footprint, I’m confident Mehmet will succeed in expanding our services geographically, in alternative delivery, and through support of our strategic corporate initiatives, while continuing to serve long-standing core clients in the greater Mid-Atlantic.
