At Stantec, he will serve as part of the leadership team for the Pacific Region Transportation Group focusing on growing the local transportation market and serving our clients on key projects.

Additionally, his team leadership while overseeing policies and procedures for cross-jurisdictional communication is critical to moving important transportation projects forward.”
Corridor-specific projects include planning and forecasting efforts for long-range studies for Route 4, I-80, I-680, Route 24, and the Ygnacio Valley Road Corridor. Additional work included the feasibility study for major new freeway project between Brentwood and Tracy (State Route 239), including a project study report.
