Weinstein also served as the Director of Public Works for the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, overseeing facilities and infrastructure projects for 600 facilities at the shipyard and across 6 states in the Northeast region of the US.
“Brian’s experience managing some of the largest and most complex US government projects and programs globally speaks for itself,” said Chris Williams, senior vice president for Stantec’s US Federal Program. “He is a proven leader with a track record of excellence, and we’re excited to welcome him to the Stantec team. Brian joining our team is outstanding as we continue to strengthen client relationships and accounts for key governmental and commercial clients across North America in our ports and maritime practice.”
