Woolpert’s Danielle Meggyesy Promoted to Project Manager in Energy Market
Meggyesy is adept at leveraging new technologies to devise innovative solutions for public and private sector clients.
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Woolpert’s Danielle Meggyesy, PE, has been promoted to project manager in the firm’s energy market. The experienced phase manager and geo-environmental engineer has been with Woolpert since late 2019 and works out of the firm’s Columbus office.
Meggyesy has planned and executed civil and environmental engineering projects for both the public and private sectors. She oversaw the planning, construction and testing of the first carbon capture-to-injection well in North America and has worked on projects that supported underground electric transmission, oil and gas initiatives, and agricultural and residential civil construction. Meggyesy said her goal at Woolpert is to build a niche service that focuses on integrating new technologies to support clients’ emerging energy needs.
“I have a strong background in research and development, and I’m a generalist—I’ve worked with a wide variety of public and private clients on various projects,” Meggyesy said. “I’ve been in power plants and on drill rigs, pipelines and civil construction sites. That kind of hands-on experience gives clients an understandable level of comfort. Also, my experience in being on the other side of the contract makes it easier to put myself in the clients’ shoes and to understand what needs to be done to make their jobs easier.”
Woolpert Senior Vice President and Energy Market Director Mike Battles said Meggyesy has developed a diverse skill set that enables her to design and manage a full range of project tasks and logistics, while providing appropriate budgetary oversight. He said her proven track record of managing multidisciplinary teams within emerging energy industry settings has prepared her well.
“We encourage our staff to identify and implement solutions, leveraging our many engineering and geospatial disciplines to achieve what each client needs,” Battles said. “There’s a demand for innovative solutions in the energy market, and Danielle is exceptional at seeing the bigger picture and analyzing opportunities to find the optimal solution our clients desire. We’re excited to see her in this new role.”
