Vice President, Operations Manager – Largo, MD

Haitham brings over 32 years of experience in the engineering and land surveying industry. He previously managed a private engineering and surveying consulting company in Adelphi, Maryland. Haitham later spent over 25 years serving in several leadership roles in Prince George’s County Government, first at the County’s Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) and then at the Department of Permitting, Inspection and Enforcement (DPIE). At DPW&T, he directed and was responsible for as many as 450 employees and strove to ensure the highest degree of public service in the County’s public roadway system, public transit systems, and storm drainage infrastructure. Haitham was then tapped by former County Executive Baker to develop and lead DPIE to consolidate the County’s permitting, inspection, and enforcement processes that were scattered across over seven agencies and offices into a one-stop center.

Haitham holds a bachelor, master, and doctorate degrees in civil engineering with a focus in structural engineering. Haitham is a licensed professional civil engineer, and a professional land surveyor.

Haitham is a long-time resident of Prince George’s County and his proudest achievement to date was creating a Community Partners Program in Prince George’s County where he and other local government officials held quarterly meetings with all county civic associations, active citizens, homeowner associations, and constituents in a forum open to the public to address their concerns and provide direct citizen access to government officials and services.
