Our Founder

ABES Engineering, Inc is led by Emmanuel Tuombe, P.E., who brings over 15 years of experience and expertise in civil engineering.  Emmanuel is a Professional Engineer (PE) licensed in Tennessee (TN), Georgia (GA), Mississippi (MS), Texas (TX), California (CA), Missouri (MO), Washington (WA), Pennsylvania (PA), and Illinois (IL). He grew up in Rwanda after the Rwandan genocide of 1994. Having lived with the realities of a crumbling infrastructure and lack of basic needs, Emmanuel understands that infrastructure can mean the difference between life and death. After a successful career with one of the largest engineering, procurement and construction companies in the world, Bechtel, Emmanuel is now dedicated to using his lifelong experiences to build the best engineering Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) firm in Memphis.

Emmanuel believes that he has to use his engineering skills to improve the living conditions of underdeveloped communities around the world.  Emanuel is the founder of Engineers Without Borders Rwanda (EWB-Rwanda), Engineers Without Borders Gabon (EWB-Gabon) and was on the board for Engineers Without Borders International (EWB-I) in 2007.
