Brian N. Tobin, former executive director of the New Jersey Asphalt Pavement Association (NJAPA) and the Associated General Contractors of New Jersey (AGC of NJ), has recently joined the staff of CAIT as an engineering research project manager. In his new role, Tobin’s efforts are primarily with the Pavement Resource Program (PRP) and Technology Transfer Group (TTG), working with key stakeholders on grant proposals, legislative agendas, technology evaluation, business development, public education, and infrastructure development.

Tobin was a recipient of the prestigious Forty Under 40 award from NJBIZ magazine, which honors men and women who have been making headlines in their field and who share a commitment to business growth, professional excellence and the community.

In his previous positions at NJAPA and AGC of NJ, Tobin was responsible for the day-to-day operations of two of the state’s premiere construction associations to ensure quality product and projects and a competitive marketplace. His work with the state’s unions and owners enabled his membership to work progressively and productively.

A lifelong New Jerseyan, Tobin grew up in East Amwell and graduated magna cum laude from Rutgers College, where he remains active in the Rutgers Alumni Association as a contributing writer for 1766 and the RUAA alumni magazine and a member of the communications committee. Tobin now lives in Metuchen, where he is treasurer of the Metuchen Democratic Organization and serves on the borough’s zoning board.
