Matthew Amicone, P.E. Promoted to Principal
Matthew first joined OLA Consulting Engineers as a summer intern and then began full-time in 2002 after graduating from Villanova University. An electrical engineer by discipline, his expertise includes the design of electrical systems for various building types. During his 20-year tenure with OLA, Matt has managed many of the firm’s significant projects for clients such as New York-Presbyterian, ArchCare, City of Hoboken, NYC Department of Construction & Design, and Touro College, to name a few.
In 2017, after more than 40 years of engineering projects throughout New York City, OLA opened an office in Manhattan and tasked Matt with leading the New York City team and managing the day-to-day operations—including marketing and business development, client relationship management, project management, and quality assurance. In the few short years since establishing our NYC operations, much of which spanned the uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the office continues to thrive. Today, we proudly announce the promotion of Matthew Amicone, P.E. to Principal in Charge of OLA’s New York City office.
