Michael Baker International, a global engineering, planning and consulting services firm, has announced the promotion of Brian May to president of federal programs and services, tasked to enhance the company’s relationships with defense and civilian agencies. 

As president of federal programs, May, who previously served as the national market lead for the U.S. Air Force and Space Force, will join Michael Baker’s Executive Committee.

May retired from the U.S. Air Force in 2017 after more than two decades of service, helping lead various engineering and planning projects. 

After completing his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, May received a Master of Arts degree in National Security and Strategic Studies from the Naval War College, a Master of Arts in Military Operational Art and Science from Air University and a Master of Business Administration from Saint Martin’s University. 

Aside from May’s appointment, Michael Baker International also promoted several other executives. Among them are George Guszcza, who will assume the role of chief transformation officer; Lori Stump-Ganter, who has been appointed as chief financial officer and director of federal operations; and Dean Hartman, who will take on the position of national market lead for the Air Force and Space Force, the company said.
