Public Funding Professional Joins QK Team
John Quiring, a local authority at tracking down grant funding, financing and other infrastructure funding opportunities, has found a new home at the consulting offices of QK. John will serve as the firm’s Director of Community Development and Infrastructure Funding.
As the Contract City Engineer for nine cities and District/Project Engineer for 13 water districts within the Central Valley, QK is ecstatic to help move expensive infrastructure projects off the “wish lists” of disadvantaged communities in the region and push them forward into reality.
“John has become a stellar resource that we can provide to our clients,” says Executive Vice President Ron Wathen, PE. “When we have a client with a project on their mind, but doesn’t have the budget to make it a reality, he is the first person we turn to for ideas.”
John Quiring has over 35 years of experience, including over ten years at the Fresno County Economic Development Corporation where he successfully created thousands of new jobs, and assisted companies invest more than $240 million into the local industrial base. Additional prior experience includes serving as an administrator with the State Center Community College District, as well as Owner/Principal of his own private consulting practice for many years. John graduated from CSU Fresno with a BA in Social Science/Economics.
