Clark School Alumnus Regan Named CEO of Whiting-Turner

Timothy J. Regan, an alumnus of the University of Maryland’s Clark School of Engineering, has been named Chief Executive Officer of the Whiting-Turner Contracting Company. He is the third CEO in the company’s rich, 105 year history. 

Regan’s tenure at Whiting-Turner spans more than three decades, and most recently he served as Executive Vice President of the company. The news of his promotion follows the passing of the company’s long-time CEO, Willard Hackerman, who lived until the age of 95.

"Literally every one of us has spent our entire Whiting-Turner career under the steady hand and inspirational leadership of Mr. Hackerman,” said Regan in statement issued by the company. “He can never be replaced… he is a legend for his good works.”

A 1977 graduate in civil engineering, Regan remains close with his alma mater and currently serves on the Clark School’s Board of Visitors.

Whiting-Turner employs over 2,000 people in 18 states and the District of Columbia, and in 2013, the company brought in approximately $5 billion in revenue. The Baltimore-based company developed several landmark buildings in its home city, including Harborplace, the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, and M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens football team. 

In addition to supporting the Clark School's longstanding Whiting-Turner Business and Entrepreneurial Lecture Series, Whiting-Turner has also supported the Whiting-Turner Internship-Scholarship program, University Incentive Awards, the Charles Irish Professorship, and the Charles Irish Laboratory at the University of Maryland.

Whiting-Turner is also a Clark School Corporate Partner, a sponsor of UMD's 2011 Solar Decathlon Team, host of our annual Clark School Alumni Receptions at the Engineers Club in Baltimore, and contributes the service of many Whiting-Turner Leaders on University of Maryland boards, including the Clark School Board of Visitors.
