James Rogan is Digital and Future Cities, Sector Lead at Bechtel. In this role, he is responsible for Bechtel’s global business related to infrastructure installation of wireless networks, fiber, data centers, EV charging, and the next generation improvements to cities infrastructure that will improve the lives of their citizens.
James has worked for Bechtel for over 20-years after completing a degree at Georgetown. He has worked abroad, including in the UK, and on a $1.6B Transmission project in Alberta, Canada. He has been California-based for the past seven-years.
A career highlight has been Bechtel’s work to help our customer complete 70 percent wireless coverage for FirstNet, the life-saving first responder network in the U.S. This equips first responders with a separate and secure wireless network, reducing their reliance on shortwave radios that only transmit voice and not data. Knowing that emergency responders have a network that they can rely on is a huge source of pride.
