Carollo Engineers assigns Associate Vice President to oversee Financial Management Group

Carollo Engineers, a prominent water engineering and consulting company in North America, is pleased to announce the growth of its Financial Management Group with the appointment of Michael Van Antwerp as the new Associate Vice President. With more than 25 years of experience, Van Antwerp will head the firm’s Grants and Funding team.

Van Antwerp has been a respected representative and advisor for various government entities and Fortune 500 companies during his career. His skills include strategic planning, risk assessment, analytical analysis, real estate selection, financial structuring, public relations, and value engineering.

Notably, he successfully handled construction and design contracts worth $88 million in FEMA-funded projects for the California Department of Parks and Recreation. Moreover, he played a crucial role in securing over $1 billion in public and private funding for the revitalization of Detroit’s Central Business District.

In his new role, Van Antwerp will work closely with Carollo’s clients, engaging in pre-award and post-award activities to meet their funding needs.

This involves identifying potential funding sources for capital projects, preparing and submitting applications for grants and low-interest loans from federal, state, and local governments, liaising with funding agencies on behalf of clients, and meticulously managing funding disbursement requests and reports.

“We are thrilled to have Michael join us. His outstanding leadership and strategic skills will be instrumental in supporting clients in seeking government and alternative funding for capital projects,” said Scott Vanier, Carollo’s Director of Utility Advisory Services. “Given the scale of our clients’ current capital programs, Michael is well-positioned to play a vital role in assisting them with their project funding while minimizing financial impact on their customers.”

Carollo has successfully secured over $1 billion in funding for client grants, loans, and financial initiatives. As part of these efforts, the company has accessed more than $168 million in client funding provided by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Acts.

The inclusion of Van Antwerp in the team further solidifies Carollo’s reputation as a leader in providing financial services to clients in the water industry.
