Carol Holland, PE, CCM, LEED AP, has been named president of the board of directors for the National Capital Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA).

Holland, a 25-year veteran of the architecture, engineering, and construction industry, has a proven technical and executive management track record. She currently holds the role of associate vice president and market segment leader at Dewberry in its Baltimore, Maryland, office. A Navy veteran and Naval Academy graduate, Holland served her country through the provision of facilities engineering services internationally, including assignments in Japan, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. She served as the deputy program manager for the Pentagon renovation program, directly contributing to the on-time, on-budget renovation of one of the largest and most historic office buildings.

“I look forward to what the next few years hold for the National Capital Chapter of CMAA. As we look at the architect engineer construction (AEC) space, construction managers play a vital role in delivering high-quality projects on time and under budget, which is critical to the success of our clients,” says Holland. “As I step into this new role, I thank Cindy Quiroz, our immediate past president, for the passion, dedication, and integrity she displayed.”

Holland earned a master’s degree in environmental engineering from the University of California, Berkeley (1995) and a bachelor’s degree in systems engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy (1989). In addition to her involvement in CMAA, Holland is a member of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME).
