Chris Rimsky, PE
Director of Electrical Engineering
Chris is responsible for management and delivery of all electrical power transmission and distribution projects for DMA’s utility customers. As the head of the firm’s electrical substation group, Chris is responsible for proposal preparation, project management, project specific equipment and material specification, protection requirements, schematic and wiring modifications, and construction management. Chris and his team support many customer initiatives and project programs by analyzing, modeling and designing our Grid. In Chris’ previous role, he was on the “owner’s side of the table” and those experiences guide his customer service focus for DMA. Previous experiences include lessons learned on all aspects of major public transportation infrastructure projects including light rail extensions, track interlockings, multi-modal centers, maintenance facilities and long range planning studies.
Chris’ father was an electrical engineer who worked in power generation in eastern Pennsylvania where Chris was born and raised. Along the way, some of that engineering know-how must have rubbed off him. Chris has a natural facility with math and excellent analytical skills, and was perfectly suited for a career in electrical engineering. He also became the perfect candidate to lead DMA’s electrical engineering group.
For years, people who know Chris say, he has always been rock solid and dependable. Chris has been married for over 20 years and he and his wife share 3 athletic kids. When not running calculations, Chris stays busy shuttling his kids between practices and games.
