Kent Early, OHM Advisors
Kent Early
Director of Municipal Engineering

Kent heads the firm’s consistently growing municipal services team of engineers and technicians and oversees project work at all levels of government. A civil engineer with nearly 25 years of industry experience, Kent has project expertise in the design and management of every municipal system, but his greatest strength is his growth mindset for his team.

In his multifaceted role, Kent oversees the whole landscape of a project for a client, and is instrumental in putting together not only the right team of engineers for it, but also in culling multidisciplinary experts from across the firm’s service offerings to fulfill the client’s holistic project needs. Over his career with OHM Advisors, Kent has applied this big-picture, forward-thinking philosophy to the municipal engineering department across all offices in the firm’s service footprint. Under his leadership, OHM Advisors’ municipal group has grown into a uniquely-minded team blending technical expertise and sharp client focus with perspectives from architecture, planning, construction and other of the firm’s community-advancing service disciplines.

Truly a “people person,” Kent is extremely active in the industry. He is a member of the American Public Works Association (APWA) and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and represents OHM Advisors at all manner of public functions, including council, board and planning commission meetings and social and business gatherings. Kent also chairs committees with his local Rotary club, is involved with community youth in various forms of volunteerism, and is a local Meals on Wheels volunteer.

I enjoy offering insight on the types of decisions that will affect my children’s future. It’s exciting to have the opportunity to solve challenges for clients and then see the solutions they implement work successfully for years.
