Looking ahead: 

Maine’s infrastructure markets beyond pandemics and shutdowns

OUR GUEST SPEAKER WILL BE JAY BOWMAN, managing director of research for FMI, a financial management consulting firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina, with a national clientele. Jay will discuss the most probable recovery trajectories for the transportation infrastructure and related industries post-COVID-19. He will identify the markets and segments that will lead or lag over the next several years. More importantly, he will highlight strategic lessons learned and mistakes to avoid in times of heightened uncertainty, including adapting to a reinvented built environment.

A PRINCIPAL WITH FMI, Jay assists a broad range of stakeholders in the construction industry, from program managers and general contractors to specialty trades and materials producers, with the identification and assessment of the risks influencing the strategic and tactical decisions they face. In this role, Jay’s primary responsibilities include research design and interpretation, based on developing an understanding of the context within which these organizations operate. These draw upon many of the research services he oversees, including market sizing and forecasting, buying practices and preferences and competitive behaviors and response. 

 Thanks to Chris Abboud of USI for organizing the speaker program.
