Dave Tucker is a senior electrical engineer with 27 years of electrical engineering experience in the areas of power systems, power system analysis, control systems and various facility electrical systems.

Why CDM Smith? Because the work we do is important. We help our clients in ways that allow them to conduct and fulfill their mission. Oftentimes, our clients have a mission that benefits the communities we live in, allowing us to indirectly help our communities.
How might clients describe you? Responsive, focused on solving problems with strong technical skills and attention to detail.
Which of CDM Smith’s core values do you identify with most? Excellence. To me, it’s the foundation of the work we do for our clients. Without great work being done by smart, capable people, we don’t have much to sell. Nobody is going to buy error-riddled work or bad ideas, even if they are free.
What are your three non-work passions? Traveling, BBQ and bourbon.
Excellence is the foundation of the work we do for our clients, made possible by our smart, capable people.
Dave is a licensed Professional Engineer in six states – Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. He is also a Certified Energy Manager and Project Management Professional.
