Arora Engineers, LLC (Arora), is pleased to announce the return of Nick Ryan, PMP as our Chief Development Officer.
Nick brings over two decades of extensive project and program management for civil, electrical, multidisciplinary, and systems improvements for airport facilities of all sizes, and through all stages of the program life cycle.

In his new role, Nick will be based in our corporate office in Chadds Ford, PA and will be responsible for development efforts supporting the growth of Arora’s global business. He will champion internal and external initiatives focused on inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility and leadership development.
Nick will contribute to Arora’s emerging and existing business and draw upon his decades of leadership to ensure our clients are understood from the outset, thoughtfully moved to action, and satisfied with their end products. He will simultaneously foster collaboration to mobilize and inspire internal staff to advance strategic initiatives in alignment with our core values and strengthen our partnerships.
Nick will work alongside Adam Oliver, our Chief Marketing Officer, and our regional and practice leads to develop new business, expand association engagement, and mentor other disadvantaged businesses as a key member of the Arora Executive Leadership Team.
“It is so exciting to have Nick Ryan back home and serving in a key leadership role. Nick made a tremendous impact on Arora’s operations and morale during his previous 12+ year term and we are looking forward to his leadership to support our rapid growth and continual delivery of quality projects for our customers” said Manik Arora, PE, President & CEO of Arora.
Nick remarked “I am thankful and energized to continue to build upon the great work of the Arora Team over the last few years. I see a great opportunity for me to bring expertise centered around client satisfaction and diversification through leadership, innovation, resources, and culture to maintain the upward growth trajectory of the company. I am most excited to return to one of the largest minority-owned infrastructure services firms in North America and to support their commitment to exploring and providing partnering opportunities for current diverse minority, women, and LGBTQ owned firms. It just feels right, and I am ready to get to work.”
Nick is very active in industry associations serving on the executive board for the Airports Consultants Council, Illuminating Engineering Society Aviation Lighting Committee, and the Middletown Area Chamber of Commerce. In addition, he currently chairs and participates in several committees within the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) and Delaware Aviation Advisory Committee.
We look forward to his continued involvement in these and other industry Associations to have a positive impact on the industry and continue to develop lasting partnerships with our agency clients and partner AEC firms.
