Electrical Engineer, CMTA Inc., Lexington, Ky.

BS Electrical Engineering, University of Kentucky

Following in his father's footsteps, Brumagen had an early understanding of the importance of electrical delivery systems, which was the primary reason he became an electrical engineer. Born and raised in Lexington, he is a Kentucky native and has remained in the area. He joined CMTA in 2014. He has a broad knowledge of building-system power distribution, lighting design and control, fire alarms, voice and data, emergency/backup power generation, uninterruptible power supply, grounding, security, intrusion detection, sensitive compartmented information facilities, secret IP router networks, closed-circuit TV, and elevator control interfaces. One of CMTA's key electrical engineers, Brumagen's leadership abilities enable him to effectively manage projects from start to finish. He is passionate about environmentally friendly design, focusing on reducing energy use as much as possible within the budget and scope of the project. Brumagen is leading the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government's senior center project, where he considers the special needs of older adults, especially in the areas of lighting and visual comfort. Senior citizens need a brightly lit space that accommodates visual impairments but retains a sense of comfort. His design provided an expert balance of specialized lighting fixtures and easy-to-use controls that create an inviting and warm atmosphere. Brumagen initiated and led a companywide wellness initiative that measures, motivates, and incentivizes healthy practices and behavior inside the CMTA office. He and his wife, Robin, are distance runners, and Brumagen has run several marathons and half-marathons. He loves to exercise and spend time with his two daughters, keeping them active by jumping on the trampoline, running, or just playing in the backyard. The family likes to hike and camp and, fortunately, Kentucky has many great places to explore the outdoors.
