Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz announced Tuesday he has named Rob Phillips as city engineer.
Phillips is currently the interim city engineer.
“Rob is an experienced and skilled manager and a proven leader in the city’s engineering division,” Cieslewicz said in a press release. “I’m pleased to announce his selection, and I’m confident he will be a great city engineer.”
In addition to serving as the interim city engineer since July, Phillips has also served Madison for more than 20 years.
For the past decade, Phillips worked as assistant city engineer. Previously, he was the principle engineer for the transportation design section and senior civil engineer.
Pending confirmation by the Common Council, Phillips will start as city engineer in February.
