Jim Cicero

headshot-jim-ciceroOne of the things I love about engineering is the opportunity to solve complex challenges. Today, I believe one of the great challenges facing our industry is project delivery across the lifecycle of a project. It’s also a great opportunity.

I’m part of COGENCE because I’ve seen the difference that project teaming makes. The atmosphere is friendlier. We look at each other as partners, not adversaries. We’re working together to achieve success. Projects become more fun. Who doesn’t want to enjoy their job more? 

Jim Cicero is President of Karpinski Engineering. He is a founding member of COGENCE, where he currently serves as secretary. Jim also serves on the Board of Directors for ACEC Ohio.
