“Over the past 10 years, I’ve known Dan well and have respected him as a leader in the engineering and energy consulting business,” said Bowman Chief Executive Officer Gary Bowman. “Dan is passionate about the business opportunities presented by the energy transition and I’m delighted that he will be leading the implementation of our strategy to make renewable energy and energy efficiency one of our primary market segments.”

During his nearly six years at Onyx, Swayze also served as the interim co-chief executive officer and managed the engineering division, where he supported the implementation of the design of renewable energy projects from development to construction.

“Bowman is uniquely positioned to help our clients meet their ESG and energy transition goals,” said Swayze. “Through a reliable and thoughtful approach to engineering and consulting, we will support our clients as they implement various decarbonizing and energy saving strategies including renewable energy, energy storage, electric vehicle charging systems and energy efficiency. In addition, as advanced through recent legislation, our team will work with our clients to both upgrade electric transmission networks and utilize hydrogen as a cleaner source of energy.

“We want our clients to know that we are committed to their success,” he added. “I’m excited to be part of Bowman’s growth. I can’t wait to see where we lead this sector and how the infrastructure and national footprint of the company will expand.”
