BJ Swanner leads Epic’s GIS services and provides coordination with clients and other project stakeholders in the public and private sectors. He is the key designer of the company’s proprietary cost-estimation and project- and property-management systems—collaborative tools that benefit clients by facilitating efficient, expedited and cost-effective project delivery from launch to close out. His skills include geospatial data synthesis, data analysis, mapping, database management, and software development and implementation. In addition, BJ administrates interagency data-management tools such as SharePoint, ProjectWise and ProjectSolve to allow collaboration on Autodesk and MicroStation. Articulate, thoughtful and audience-focused, he is proficient at clearly describing technological capabilities and usage during project orientations, for example, as well as right of way complexities and impacts at community outreach meetings. BJ has been with Epic since 2007 and is a member of the management team.
