Tilson President and CEO Joshua Broder has been named a "Top Young Professional" in New England by Engineering News-Record, the magazine of record for stakeholders in the commercial engineering and construction industries since 1917.
Broder, a former U.S. Army signal officer, is one of nine professionals in New England who will be recognized in the July 24-31 issue of ENR New England for their model leadership, community service, and contributions to the industry before age 40, according to a news release.
Broder was nominated for his role in numerous broadband infrastructure initiatives, including the Three Ring Binder Project, the deployment of ultra-fast LTE cellular systems for several carriers, smart metering and grid automation networks at utilities throughout the Northeast and for helping to bring internet access to unserved and underserved communities.
Broder's accomplishments at Tilson include growing its workforce from 10 employees in Maine to over 240; expanding its nationwide presence by opening seven regional offices from coast-to-coast and earning Tilson a place on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies six consecutive years running.
In 2017, Tilson was named "Maine and New England Veteran-Owned Small Business of the Year" by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Nearly 50% of Tilson's workforce is comprised of veterans.
"Throughout his decorated military and business careers, Josh has proven himself one of the most brilliant young minds in our industry today," Mike Dow, founder of Tilson, said in the news release. "Tilson's growth alone is a tremendous achievement, but what sets Josh apart is how he has used his experiences to engage other veterans in the industry, advance our nation's critical infrastructure, and build a successful company."
