Pete Sewczwicz

Director of Public Works | City of Alpharetta
Background

Pete Sewczwicz has over 20 years of experience in the public sector and over 6 years in the private sector. Prior to working for the City of Alpharetta, Pete worked for engineering firms focusing on developing plans for single family subdivisions, multi-family developments, and shopping centers throughout the southeast. Additionally, he worked for an engineering firm that focused on developing plans to install additional cellular antennas on existing cell towers throughout the southeast.

Pete was hired by the City of Alpharetta in 2004 as a Civil Engineer. Over the next 5 years he worked up the ranks to Sr. Engineer, Deputy Director, and in 2009 he was appointed Director of Public Works. Pete brought lessons learned in the private sector to the city.  Though the private sector projects were larger in scale, the premise is the same: deliver quality projects in a timely and cost-conscious manner.  This methodology enabled for the successful completion of a vast array of Capital Improvement Projects to the Citizens ranging from Fire Stations, new parks and multi-use trails like Big Creek Greenway and the Alpha Loop, new roadways, intersection improvement projects, and City Center.

Throughout Pete’s tenure with the City, he has developed relationships with outside agencies (Georgia Department of Transportation, True North 400) to enable the City to leverage funds from these agencies to partner on various projects throughout the City: Encore Parkway, Northwinds Extension, and the widening and aesthetic improvements to bridges over GA 400 in association with the GA 400 Express Lanes Project.

Pete has been married to his wife Kelly for nearly 25 years and they have 2 boys Ryan (17) and Kyle (13). In his spare time, he enjoys woodworking, running, and playing golf with his family.
