To ‘broaden his experience,’ Tupper new No. 2 engineer

The Town of Farragut has hired Brannon Tupper as assistant Town engineer.

Tupper came on board Feb. 4 to start his new duties.

“Brannon comes to us by way of Bechtel National, a major international construction/engineering company,” Town engineer Darryl Smith said.

“With several years of contract management experience at Bechtel, we knew he’d be a terrific fit with all of our upcoming capital projects.

“Plus, Brannon has a desire to broaden his experience with a variety of engineering tasks, and Farragut’s the perfect place to do that,” Smith added.

“I fell in love with the area,” said Tupper, a Roane County resident. “I have a house on Watts Bar Lake in Roane County, so I’d like to be here long term.”

Tupper’s credentials include a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the University of Kentucky, a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of South Carolina and 11 years with Bechtel.

He is a registered professional engineer who specialized in construction and contract management at Bechtel.
