“We are extremely fortunate to have Vijay joining us to lead the growth of our ports and harbors practice,” said Gary Bowman, chairman and chief executive of Bowman. “Over the past several years, we have made several strategic investments in the marine engineering market, including our acquisition of Anchor Consultants and H2H Engineering.
