Tim Regan

Timothy Regan grew up in the Gardenville neighborhood of northeast Baltimore City. He attended Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, graduating in 1973. Regan then graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1977 with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering. Upon his graduation, Regan worked with the Maryland State Highway Administration in construction inspection. In 1980, he moved to Whiting-Turner as a project engineer, where he now serves as President and CEO. As Regan began his career with Whiting-Turner, he worked on utility, public works and heavy industrial projects including water, wastewater, power and waste-to-energy projects. As part of that work, and in partnership with a Whiting-Turner superintendent, Regan received a patent for a Telescoping Scaffold used to help construct two three-million-gallon egg-shaped concrete digesters at the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant in East Baltimore. In the early 1990’s, Regan was part of a team that led the expansion of Whiting-Turner’s presence in the life sciences industries, including biotechnology, pharmaceutical processing and federal laboratories. These industry clients included various private biotechnology companies, as well as the National Institutes of Health, the Food and Drug Administration and the Bureau of ATF.

Following the passing of longtime President and CEO Willard Hackerman in 2014, Regan succeeded his mentor. Under Regan, Whiting-Turner has continued to grow and expand. The company has added over 30 new locations, expanded their national programs and grown annual revenues to over $12 billion.

As President and CEO, Regan oversees Whiting-Turner’s 60+ entrepreneurial-led regional locations across the United States. Whiting-Turner is ranked third largest domestic builder by Engineering News-Record with over 600 active projects nationally and 60,000 trade partner craftspeople working in concert with 4,600 Whiting-Turner management and supervisory personnel. He is tasked with keeping the company in alignment with its core values of integrity, excellence, experience and leadership. He also leads the charge in Whiting-Turner’s commitment to safety, which he considers a foundational value of the company. Additionally, he leads the company’s philanthropic endeavors and its focus on creating the industry’s most welcoming jobsites and workplaces.

Regan sits on the board of many distinguished organizations. These include the Board of Directors of the Greater Baltimore Committee, the University of Maryland Clark School of Engineering Board of Visitors, University of Maryland College Park Foundation Board of Trustees and the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation.

Much like his predecessor and mentor Mr. Hackerman, Regan has a passion for helping others and lifting the local community. This is exhibited by his co-founding of TouchPoint Baltimore with his friend and Exelon Utilities’ CEO, Calvin Butler. Located at Mondawmin Mall in West Baltimore, TouchPoint Baltimore is partnered with three high-performing non-profit organizations with the goals of creating a workforce pipeline and scaling collective social impact by leveraging the strengths of each organization for the betterment of the local neighborhood and its residents. In addition to TouchPoint Baltimore, Regan and his wife Joanne purchased the former Target retail building at Mondawmin Mall with the goal of making it a hub for various organizations including local entrepreneurs, TouchPoint’s new home, Whiting-Turner’s mid-town office, as well as several healthcare service organizations. The hope is that The Village at Mondawmin will help to unleash significant human and economic potential in some of the historically underserved communities of West Baltimore.
