Robert Martin Gruninger, Civil Engineer, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of civil engineering.
Mr. Gruninger had always been into architecture and buildings and once in college, he gravitated toward the environmental side of civil engineering. He graduated from the New Jersey Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering in 1960. Shortly after, he received a job with the New York Telephone Company but was not happy with his position. Mr. Gruninger then decided to pursue a Master of Science with a focus on environmental civil engineering at his alma mater and graduated in 1968. He then made his transition from the phone company to his desired focus in environmental civil engineering with Malcolm Pirnie Incorporated as a project engineer from 1966 to 1968.
Mr. Gruninger moved up in the company as a project manager until 1979 and during his time with the company, he has had the opportunity to work on a large number of municipality projects in New York state that dealt with solid waste disposal to develop comprehensive plans for several counties. It was there that he met former surgeon general, Charles Johnson, with whom Mr. Gruninger spent a great deal of time and who was one of his greatest mentors.
Mr. Gruninger began working as the vice president of C.C. Johnson & Malhotra, Professional Corporation before finding success as the vice president of Lewis & Zimmerman Associates, Inc. from 1990 to 1991 and as the vice president of Gannett Fleming Inc. from 1991 to 1992. A member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Bergen County Society Professional Engineers, and the American Water Works Association, he spent three months in Iran helping develop a plan to design wastewater management techniques in the city of Shiraz. As a testament to his success in his field, Mr. Gruninger was featured in the second edition of Who’s Who in Science and Engineering.
