Snyder named to Oklahoma Magazine 40 Under 40 list
For much of the dozen years that he’s been at Garver, Tulsa-based Transportation Project Manager Andrew Snyder has been making an impact in his community both on and off the road. Now, he’s receiving recognition for those efforts as he joins Oklahoma Magazine’s most recent class of 40 Under 40, which the magazine describes as “philanthropic, driven and sharp.”
As a transportation project manager, Snyder has played a vital role in keeping Oklahoma communities running and its residents safe as they travel across the state and beyond. Notably, he’s served as a design leader in significant projects that include the Turner Turnpike improvements west of Tulsa, the I-44 improvements at 145th and 165th East Avenue, and the US-75/I-44 interchange reconfiguration from a cloverleaf to a directionally stacked interchange, which is currently under construction.
“As a consultant, I get to work on some of the most unique and complicated projects in my field, which is extremely rewarding for someone who geeks out about stuff like that,” he told the magazine. Being a civil engineer is “the perfect combination of my love of math and science and my passion to serve others from behind the scenes.”

Still, while much of his experience serving others lies in roadway design for new construction and rehabilitation of existing highways, interchanges, and arterial and non-arterial streets, Snyder’s community-focused work goes well beyond the road.
In addition to shaping the future of Oklahoma transportation infrastructure, he’s also played a significant role in mentoring future generations of engineers through Garver Launch, the firm’s comprehensive internship program, and volunteering alongside his family at local organizations like John 3:16 and Arms Around Broken Arrow. In 2017, Snyder was presented with a Spirit of Garver Award, the firm’s highest employee honor that he told the magazine was “one of the most humbling and rewarding achievements of my career.”
“What is the secret to my success? I would just say that, no matter what task I'm ever given, no matter how small or unimportant it may have seemed at the time, I’ve always found a way to care about it and the person I'm doing it for,” he said.
Snyder is the fourth Garver employee in four years to be selected for the honor, with Transportation Project Manager Matthew Youngblood, Transportation Team Leader Michael Winterscheidt, and Oklahoma Water Team Leader Mary Elizabeth Mach also receiving the recognition.
