The City of El Paso is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Goh as the new City Engineer and Capital Improvement Department Director.
Goh is a professional engineer with 30 years of diverse public and private experience in capital improvements, engineering and construction management, transportation and utility infrastructure. He joins El Paso from the City of Tempe, Arizona where he currently serves as Deputy Public Works Director and City Engineer, a position he has held since 2002. Goh also brings private sector experience where he specialized in civil and highway engineering.
In El Paso, Goh will be responsible for the leadership and performance of the Capital Improvement Department, which oversees more than $690 million in capital investments primarily in quality of life bond projects and the street infrastructure projects.
Goh’s start date with El Paso is August 31, 2016.
In Tempe, Goh has provided the leadership to successfully complete more than one thousand infrastructure projects worth more than one billion dollars. Many of those projects were fast-track, high-profile, or federally funded projects that required innovative and efficient project management approaches in order to be completed on time and on budget.
One of the most recent high profile project completed is the $45 million Tempe Town Lake Dam, which is also the nation’s largest hydraulically operated steel gated dam.
Goh is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the American Public Works Association, where he sits on the board of directors for Arizona. He is a graduate of Arizona State University where he earned a bachelor’s and a master’s in civil engineering and a master’s in business administration.
