Michael Loose, P.E., Dist.M.ASCE, was honored by ASCE for his eminence in the leadership, management, and strategic planning of engineering services while serving his country and the civil engineering community since 1975. His contributions to process improvement and project execution revolutionized the Navy’s approach to civil engineering. Senior vice president and infrastructure and environment division manager at Parsons Corporation, Loose leads its global infrastructure and environmental services, encompassing the full life cycle of the natural and built environments, for federal government clients. Vice admiral USN (Ret.), he last served as the deputy chief of Naval Operations for Fleet Readiness and Logistics and was responsible for the planning, programming, and resourcing of the Navy’s energy, environmental, and logistics programs and the maintenance and operations of its ships, submarines, aircraft, and shore infrastructure. He was among the first federal and military design and construction leaders to advance design-build, public-private partnerships, asset management, and total ownership costs management. Hailed as a true visionary in the design and construction industry, Loose was honored by ASCE in 2013 with its Outstanding Projects And Leaders (OPAL) Lifetime Achievement award in Management, and in 2009 as with the Henry L. Michel Award for Industry Advancement of Research for his “demonstrated leadership; for his bold advocacy of research and innovation as a means to improve productivity, performance, and quality in the design, construction, and maintenance of U.S. Naval facilities; and for his dedicated service to our nation.” An active member of ASCE, Loose is a member of the Industry Leaders Council, serving as vice chair from 2012 to 2014.
