Bobby Downes

CEI Manager

Bobby is a senior project manager for our Construction Engineering and Inspection (CEI) efforts across the state of North Carolina, providing qualified and certified transportation technicians to NCDOT, local municipalities and private firms. He has over 30 years of project management experience with NCDOT, serving as NCDOT Resident Engineer in Division Five for 27 of those years before joining Summit in 2006.

Bobby takes pride in being part of a motivated staff that tackles challenging issues and utilizes all of its talents to achieve a finished product and satisfied client. Bobby feels workplaces should be enjoyable places to spend time. “That’s the way it is here at Summit,” he says.

Outside of work, call Bobby an artisan. You will find him woodworking or duck carving. He spends time relaxing in the mountains where he and his wife, Connie, have a cabin. Bobby also enjoys collecting and shooting firearms.
