Electrical Department Manager

Bruce Swanton loves that engineering offers him the opportunity to create a better world. From working in his father’s business as an apprentice electrician during high school to serving as AHA’s Electrical Department Manager, Bruce Swanton has always appreciated the technical aspects of the industry. In his 25 years of experience, he has designed electrical systems for the first data center to employ fuel cells as the primary source of power and upgraded the electrical infrastructure in various buildings at Harvard University without disrupting service. His diverse experience has taught him a great deal – namely what can be practically incorporated in clients’ projects and what pitfalls to avoid to achieve project success. When he’s not traveling the world, Bruce is empowering the young engineers at AHA to be independent thinkers. Each day at the firm, Bruce leads his skilled project teams to design practical systems that allow clients to complete their work and grow their businesses. After all, to Bruce, a successful electrical system is one that clients forget about entirely once installation is complete.
