McKim & Creed Promotes Chris Bosshart to Regional Manager for Florida Geomatics

Chris Bosshart, PSM, has been promoted to regional geomatics manager for McKim & Creed. Chris is based in McKim & Creed’s Tampa office and specializes in transportation infrastructure improvement projects.

In his new role as regional manager, Chris oversees McKim & Creed’s geospatial services and projects throughout Florida. He is responsible for a team of nearly 40 survey crew members, project managers and CAD designers from offices in Tampa, Fort Myers, Pensacola, Orlando, Sarasota and DeLand.

Chris has 18 years of experience in the fields of land surveying, mapping and data collection. He joined McKim & Creed in 2005 as a field crew member. Most notably, he served as the project manager for the I-275 Corridor, which is part of the Florida Department of Transportation’s Tampa Bay Next transportation infrastructure modernization project. Chris successfully managed the $5-million project, which included surveying and mapping services for 31 miles of heavily traveled interstates and difficult-to-access bridges and interchanges. He leveraged McKim & Creed’s advanced technologies — including mobile and aerial LiDAR, 3D static scanning and remote sensing — to collect the data safely, accurately and efficiently. In 2021 the project won an Engineering Excellence Grand Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Florida.

“Through his leadership, attention to detail and commitment to excellence, Chris has helped drive the success of our Florida geomatics program,” said Tom Ruschkewicz, RPLS, PLS, McKim & Creed senior vice president of geomatics. “We have every confidence that he will continue to accelerate that success in his new role as regional manager.”

Chris has a degree in business management from Florida Gulf Coast University and a certificate in geomatics from the University of Florida. He is a licensed Professional Surveyor and Mapper in the state of Florida.
