Executive Editor, Events
After serving as editor-in-chief for 20 years, Jan Tuchman now leads content development for Engineering News-Record's wide-ranging series of live and virtual events. These major events include Groundbreaking Women in Construction, a career advancement event, FutureTech, which explores the cutting edge of engineering and construction technology, and a newly recast program called the NY/NJ Infrastructure Forum.
Scaling down ENR responsibility slightly opens up time for work with construction organizations and nonprofits. A passion is serving as the 2022 board chair of the nonprofit Bridges to Prosperity, which works to alleviate poverty caused by rural isolation by building trailbridges across raging rivers. Tuchman is vice chair of the Industry Leaders Council of the American Society of Civil Engineers and a member of the Columbia University Advisory Board on Infrastructure, Facilities and Public Spaces. She was recently named Sergeant at Arms for The Moles, a heavy construction leadership organization. Her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism are from the University of Colorado in Boulder. Her most recent recognition is the Ted C. Kennedy Award in 2020 from the National Academy of Construction, the group’s highest honor.
