Meet the Public Works Director Nadeem Majaj, P.E.
Nadeem Majaj has been serving as the City’s Public Works Director since April of 2012. In August of 2016, he was appointed to also serve as the Interim City Engineer with oversight responsibility of the City's Capital Improvements Program and engineering services.

Nadeem's career in public service began in 1985.  He worked his way up the ranks at the County of Orange starting as a Junior Civil Engineer, advancing through a number of positions including Senior Civil Engineer, Design Section Chief, and Flood Control Division Manager.  In 2008 he became the Assistant Director/Chief Engineer and was responsible for managing six divisions with over 450 personnel and an annual budget of over $400 million. 

Nadeem has extensive experience overseeing flood control projects, roads, operations and maintenance, capital improvement programs, fleet management, project management, and construction.  He served as chairman of the National Pollution Discharge Eliminate Systems (NPDES) Technical Advisory Committee for Orange County, and as co-chair for the California State Association of Counties’ Flood Control Policy Committee.  He served as a key participant in state and federal legislative and appropriations advocacy for the County’s public works programs.  He also developed the Basin Analysis Software for the design of weirs and retarding basins.  This software gained national recognition in the early 2000's and is used by many flood control districts.

Prior to arriving at the City of Chino Hills, Nadeem served as the Director of Public Works for the City of San Bernardino overseeing a Department of 260 employees.  He played a key role in re-organizing the Department, improving efficiencies, eliminating wasteful spending, and improving employee morale.  

Nadeem and his wife, Silvia, live in Mission Viejo.
